After uprgrading from Fortify SSC from 17.20 to 18.20 on Windows. I am seeing the following error at the top of the web UI.
Can you please advise on steps to investigate and resolve this?
By checking the log files, and configuration files noted that the searchIndex location was not set, please follow the next steps to complete this task.
[WARN] com.fortify.manager.DAO.fulltext.ModelMappingFactoryImpl - Fulltext search is disabled because searchIndex.location property has no value
1. Stop the Tomcat Server.
2. Go to <fortify.home>/<app_context>/conf
3. Create a backup of the file app.properties
4. The line 8 indicates the property âsearchIndex.location=â, please set the absolute path to the .fortify folder, without any space, for example the following
Windows - searchIndex.location=C:\Users\<my username>\.fortify
For Linux make sure to use / instead of \
5. Start the Tomcat Server
> The location <fortify.home>/<app_context> is generally as following C:\Users\<my username>\.fortify\ssc\
