Completing the CxSAST Installation with Management and Orchestration

If you install CxSAST with Management and Orchestration, the database must synchronize. You may start the synchronization process immediately after installing CxSAST or at a later stage. In this case, the Congratulations window appears with the Start Database Synchronization checkbox selected by default.

To start synchronizing the database immediately:

  • Leave the checkbox selected and click <CLOSE>. Restart the server, if you are asked to do so. The database synchronization process starts.

  • For additional information and instructions about installing Management and Orchestration, refer to Installing Management and Orchestration.

To synchronize the database at a later stage:

  • Clear the checkbox, and click <CLOSE>.

  • When desired, close all Checkmarx applications and use the ETL tool to perform the synchronization. The ETL_tool is located at <Installation folder>\Checkmarx\Checkmarx Risk Management\ETL\etl_executor.exe, for example C:\Program Files\Checkmarx\Checkmarx Risk Management\ETL\etl_executor.exe

  • The synchronization may take a long time, depending on the amount of data being synchronized, meanwhile, you won't be able to access the web portal.

  • If attempting to install CxSAST with an existing Management and Orchestration database, the subsequent ETL DB sync fails due to a limitation in Management and Orchestration. Therefore, when reinstalling CxSAST, either delete the existing Management and Orchestration database before reinstalling or reinstall CxSAST with a new Management and Orchestration database.
