Issue/Introduction

When upgrading an RA solution, after a successful upgrade, the Agent fails immediately on startup with:

20210512/121215.430 - U02000021 Environment: Software = 'CIT'.
20210512/121215.430 - U02000022 Environment: SW version = '7.1.4+build.1'.
20210512/121215.592 - U00003620 Routine 'UCEX_R' forces trace because of error.
20210512/121215.593 - U00003449 Output to the TRACE file is finished.

Review of the generated trace shows:

20210512/121215.603 - 25     ----------------------- Stack Trace -----------------------
20210512/121215.604 - 25     java.lang.RuntimeException: java.lang.IllegalArgumentException
 at com.uc4.ex.MessageDispatcher.parseMessage(MessageDispatcher.java:408)
 at com.uc4.ex.MessageDispatcher.dispatchLogicalMessage(MessageDispatcher.java:140)

 

 

Environment

Release : 12.2

Component : AUTOMATION ENGINE

Cause

Change in behavior in the licensing within the Automation Engine

Resolution

With the newer versions of the Automation Engine (12.2+), the checks for licensing have been changed. RA Solutions that are created after these changes will not provide license information as expected with the older versions of the Automation Engine.

To resolve either load an older RA Solution version or upgrade the Automation Engine to 12.2.2+
