When trying to boot up your Identity Manager server, the following error appears in the application server log: 

Error message = WorkItemPvt.query() returned com.workpoint.common.exception.WorkflowException. Error message = The WorkPoint database version should be '[version #]' for the WPDS DSN but is found to be not present in the WP_INI table for SECTION_NAME=Database and KEY_NAME=version. This may mean you are running against an incompatible or outdated WorkPoint database version. Please upgrade the WorkPoint database manually, or set the auto.db.create.or.upgrade property to true in the file and restart the server. 
In the file there is a setting called auto.db.create.or.upgrade. Set this property to true and restart the server. This allows the WP DB to upgrade itself.
