Question:
What are the changes and requirements to install RA Web Service 4 on Applications Manager?
Answer:
The installation or upgrade of RA Web Service 4 is similar to all other installation or upgrade to RA components using the Rapid Automation Loader Tool within Applications Manager's Java Web Client.

However, there are some changes and requirements:
  • RA Web Service 4 is built on a new architecture that will require re-creating Web Service Jobs if upgrading from RA Web Service version 2 or 3
  • RA Web Service 4 requires Applications Manager version 9.2.2 as a minimum requirement.
  • RA Web Service 4 is now split into 2 separate Agents; a REST and SOAP Agent. Below are example names for the installation media:
    • RA.Web.Service.REST_RA.Web.Service.REST.Solution.NoWeb_4_4_1+build.1187.zip
    • RA.Web.Service.SOAP_RA.Web.Service.SOAP.Solution.NoWeb_4_4_1+build.251.zip
  • If you've already previously purchase the license for Web Service 3 or below, a keyfile change is required as each SOAP and REST Agent requires a new license entry. Please contact Customer Care for keyfile changes.
  • If not licensed for Web Service, please contact your Account Manager or Customer Care if you are interested in purchasing RA Web Service for Applications Manager.
