Summary: CAST AIP 8.3.12 introduces a number of features and changes as listed below. To view the impacts of these changes on analysis results, see: Changes in results post upgrade.

CAST Upgrade batch file

CASTUpgrade_ServerConnection.txt - PASSWD_CRYPTED option

The option PASSWD_CRYPTED has been removed and it is therefore no longer possible to define an encrypted password for the CAST Storage Service operator user directly in the txt file. See CSSPASSWORD below for more information about how to workaround this.

CSSPASSWORD environment variable

A new environment variable called CSSPASSWORD has been introduced to allow the CAST Storage Service operator user password to be set prior to running the CASTUpgradeRun.bat file. This means that upgrades can be run unattended without needing to manually input the operator user password when the batch is run. To set the variable, use the SET option in a cmd Window prior to running the CASTUpgradeRun.bat file (enter the operator user password in place of <PASSWORD>:


SET CSSPASSWORD=<PASSWORD>
CASTUpgradeRun.bat

Technology support changes

Please also see Technology coverage changes in CAST AIP 8.3.x for more detailed discussion of this subject.

CAST Management Studio CLI

ImportAssessmentModel

An optional parameter called -appli has been introduced in CAST AIP 8.3.12. It enables you to specify an Application when the Management Service schema associated with the chosen connection profile contains multiple Applications:

  • If there is only one Application in the Management Service schema this parameter is optional, and should match with the existing target Application if it is provided
  • If there are multiple Applications, this parameter is mandatory and should match with an existing Application in the Management Service schema in order to synchronise the imported assessment model with the associated Dashboard Service schemas

See Automating CAST Management Studio tasks.

CAST Management Studio GUI

Change operator and guest user passwords

The Server Security tab previously available in the Management Service schema editor has been removed, as such, it is no longer possible to change the operator and guest user passwords for the associated CAST Storage Service:

See CMS - Change Operator and Guest passwords (CSS only) and CMS - CAST Storage Service database server editor.

CAST Storage Service maintenance tools

CSSResetPassword.exe (resetting Operator and Guest passwords)

In CAST AIP ≥ 8.3.12, resetting passwords for CAST Storage Service users is no longer possible. The tool CSSResetPassword.exe has been removed from the CSSAdmin folder at the root of your CAST AIP installation.
