Where does Analytics store the repository information?

According to Semarchy DI documentation, the answer is this: Define a SEMARCHY_DI_WEBAPP_HOME environment variable, pointing to the folder into which Semarchy Convergence for DI Analytics will store its parameters and repository information.

But for me this is not working. I cannot figure out if it's a Stambia Analytics bug, a Semarchy packaging bug, or if it's user error by me.
  1. I set SEMARCHY_DI_WEBAPP_HOME to /home/tomcat/webapp_home
  2. I tested this in Tomcat by calling System.getenv(). I see this: SEMARCHY_DI_WEBAPP_HOME=/home/tomcat/webapp_home
  3. It shouldn't be a permissions issue. The TOMCAT_USER is tomcat. The user tomcat has full access to /home/tomcat/webapp_home
  4. But... when I define a new repository called DemoRepository in Analytics, nothing is created in /home/tomcat/webapp_home
  5. To try to make sure that it's not just a packaging issue, I also set STAMBIA_WEBAPP_HOME=/home/tomcat/webapp_home
  6. I can find the information on disk in tomcat's cache:
    sudo find / -name "DemoRepository*"
    /var/cache/tomcat7/work/Catalina/localhost/semarchy-di-analytics/eclipse/workspace/.metadata/.plugins/com.indy.ui.resource/.semarchyDiWebApp/repositories/files/DemoRepository.repository
    but I cannot get it persisted anywhere that I can manage it.

I'm using Semarchy Convergence for DI Analytics version 3.0.0 GA.

Is there something else I need to do? I'd like to persist my repository metadata somewhere that I can manage it.

Hi Matt,

I think you did it the right way.
Normally, setting STAMBIA_WEBAPP_HOME tells analytics to store repos in this actual directory.
Can you tell us what version of Stambia Analytics is packaged ?

I don't see a way to get that information in the Analytics GUI. I see only "Semarchy Convergence for DI Analytics version 3.0.0 GA".

But I think this .jar name may contain the answer:
./WEB-INF/plugins/com.indy.ui.analytics.application_2.0.7.20130522_084013.jar

If that's not good enough... where should I check the version number?

Hmmm this one is not discriminant.
What do you have in WEB-INF\features ?
Edit : especially the com.indy.analytics.feature_**** ?

There is no subfolder called "features". Here is everything. I'll edit the post later to remove the extra junk that isn't helpful.

Please open the jar named "./WEB-INF/plugins/com.indy.ui.common.ext_1.0.0.201411190659.jar"
Open the file \src\com\indy\ui\common\messages\analytics.properties

The expected variable name is indicated at the line starting with "Analytics_WebappPathEnvVar=........"

By default, in the Semarchy build that we supply, it is set to "SEMARCHY_WEBAPP_HOME", not "SEMARCHY_DI_WEBAPP_HOME".
So, unless this was changed when packaging Semarchy Convergence for DI Analytics, you should be using "SEMARCHY_WEBAPP_HOME".

Let me know how it goes

Bingo!
When I extract and view that file I see this line:
Analytics_WebappPathEnvVar=SEMARCHY_DI_ANALYTICS_WEBAPP_HOME

This does not match our docs which read:
Define a SEMARCHY_DI_WEBAPP_HOME environment variable...

Once I changed my environment variable to match what is REALLY inside the .jar, then my repository metadata immediately shows up as expected.

Thanks for you help. I'll be sure to have some strong words with FX.
