Upgrading to the new AppScan Presence

If you already have a V1 AppScan Presence installed and you want to upgrade to V2, follow these instructions.

About this task

You can use the old Presence key for the new version, as long as you do not run both Presences at the same time.

Procedure

  1. Download the new Presence: for Windows or Linux as needed:
    • North America data center:
      https://cloud.appscan.com/api/V2/Tools/PresenceV2/win_x64
      https://cloud.appscan.com/api/V2/Tools/PresenceV2/linux_x64
    • Western Europe data center:
      hhttps://cloud.appscan.com/eu/api/V2/Tools/PresenceV2/win_x64
      https://cloud.appscan.com/eu/api/V2/Tools/PresenceV2/linux_x64
  2. Extract the contents of the ZIP file.
  3. Copy the Presence.key file from the old Presence folder to the new one.
  4. If the old Presence contained custom configuration settings (in the config.properties file) you must set the same configuration in the new file (appsettings.json) in the new Presence.
  5. Verify that the old Presence is not running. You must not run the two Presences at the same time with the same key.
  6. Start the new Presence.
