Moving an Analytics installation to another Server

    Please follow these recommendations when needing to move an existing Analytics installation from a location to another location.

    • Stop Analytics from your Application Server
    • Copy the STAMBIA_WEBAPP_HOME directory to the new server
      •  Note : do not confuse this folder with the webapp installation dir. You want to copy the folder containing "internal", "jdbc", "repositories", "temp", "stambia.logs"...
    • Make sure that the new server has the STAMBIA_WEBAPP_HOME environment variable referring to this directory - see Analytics' installation instructions
    • Install the Analytics webapp on the new server - make sure that you install the same Analytics version
    • Start the new Application server


    Backing up Analytics data

      The Analytics web application writes all its data to the <STAMBIA_WEBAPP_HOME> directory.

      Here is how this folder looks like :

      stambia@devsrv01:/data/analytics/support_webapp_home$ ls -l
      total 32
      drwxr-xr-x 3 stambia stambia 4096  3 mars   2017 internal
      drwxr-xr-x 3 stambia stambia 4096  5 mars  14:41 jdbc
      drwxr-xr-x 2 stambia stambia 4096 30 mai   16:56 navigator
      drwxr-xr-x 5 stambia stambia 4096  9 mars   2017 repositories
      -rw-r--r-- 1 stambia stambia 5428 28 juin  09:22 stambia.logs
      drwxr-xr-x 2 root    root    4096  6 juin  12:33 temp
      drwxr-xr-x 3 root    root    4096 16 avril 17:36 users


      So, backing up Analytics data consists in saving all content from this directory, including its files and subdirectories.

      • This will save Analytics Preferences, Session report parameters, Metadata configurations, Deployment managers, Profiles, Runtime lists
      • This WILL NOT save Runtime items such as Deliveries, Session data...

      Making Variables settable in Analytics

        Configuring a variable to make it settable in Analytics is very simple.

        The Default Value parameter has to be externalized. Externalization means that the corresponding property has to be configured.


        Then, after importing in Analytics a Process using this Variable, it will appear and be modifiable.
