After upgrading the UIM to the version 20.4.8, integration with external CABI is not working anymore. CABI version is 7.1.1. 

We are getting error "CABI is not available or accessible".

I already saw these articles, but those solutions didn't help: 

Also, I tried to uninstall the integration and configure it again, but without success.

I would like to know which packages and their versions I need to install and to which server/robot.


  • UIM Server OS: Windows 2012R2
  • Primary hub server (wasp for AC)
  • Secondary hub server (cabi_external_probe)
  • OC server (wasp for OC)
  • Database server
  • CABI server (not a robot)


  • cabi_external is not supported as of the end of 2022.


As of the end of 2022, cabi_external is no longer supported.

For DX UIM v20.4 CU8, click this link below for the cabi install instructions, software, and packages you need to set up cabi:

Install or Upgrade for a Bundled CABI Server

Some extracted highlights to mention here ...(but follow the instructions on the mentioned paged from top to bottom):

Note for CABI 8.01

DX UIM 20.4 CU8 uses CABI 8.01.
  • You can deploy CABI 8.01 and Operator Console on the same robot.
  • If you deploy OC and CABI on different robots, both OC and CABI must use the HTTPS protocol.
  • Upgrade process for CABI 8.01, first, upgrade the CABI wasp in the CABI robot... then deploy the CABI probe.

Then follow: 

To migrate custom dashboard content from an external CA Business Intelligence JasperReports Server (CABI Server) to a bundled CABI Server. This process creates a complete backup of the CABI Server. The output file includes information such as custom dashboards, reports, users, organizations, and data sources.
