Known Limitations



Setup & Configuration

When JAVA_HOME is set incorrectly, some components and services cannot be installed/run correctly.

To solve this, remove JAVA_HOME or re-configure it correctly (will be fixed in 2.6.1).

If the installer fails in the middle you can observe the inner logs in the TEMP folder. In Windows → type:

%temp% and look for the last i4j_log*.log file

If you run CxIAST services (CxIAST_Manger & CxAccessControl) under a user domain account and the account's password is changed, the services should be logged on again with the new password -

otherwise the services won't start.

Access Control (CxAC)

CxAccessControl doesn’t support .NET Core SDK 2.1. Only .NET Core SDK 2.0 is supported at the moment (will be fixed in 2.6.1).

Query Editor

Custom queries created on the previous version should be fixed, as the syntax was slightly changed:

  • FindOnTraces should be removed

  • Click on Validate to see if the syntax is correct
