i2b2 Release 1.7.09b Release Notes
Release Date: August 22, 2017
1.7.09b Release Summary
Release 1.7.09b fixes a problem where some users were not able to log into the i2b2 Admin module after installing version 1.7.09a. The logon problem only affected those users who downloaded the zip file from the i2b2 Software page. Users who downloaded the code directly from the i2b2 repositories do not have the issue.
The reason it only affects the zip file from i2b2.org/software is because we repackage the zip file from the i2b2-core-src repository to include the Admin module. When we add the Admin folder to the i2b2core-src-xxxx.zip file we have to modify some of the configurations. During this process one of the files was inadvertently updated using the wrong syntax to comment out some of the code. Release 1.7.09b fixes this problem with configuration file.
This release does not contain any changes to the standard i2b2 code. It is simply a modification to a configuration file that fixes a problem with not being able to log in to the Admin module.
If you downloaded 1.7.09a directly from the i2b2 repositories on gitHub then you do not have the issue with the configuration file and therefore you do not need to update your i2b2 with Release 1.7.09b
The i2b2 JIRA issue (WEBCLIENT-216) contains detailed information on the issue and the resolution. Attached to the JIRA issue is a document that outlines how to manually fix the file (only necessary if you don't want to download and install 1.7.08b).
Additional information on how to install the Admin on your i2b2 Server can be found in the INSTALL-README.md file located in the i2b2-webclient repository.
The bug fix (JIRA issue) included in this release can be found in the Change Summary - i2b2 Web Client Software section.
This release note applies to you if you installed 1.7.09a and are not able to log into the i2b2 Admin module.
If you are installing 1.7.09b from a computer running the i2b2 Workbench, ensure that the workbench and all eclipse applications are closed prior to installing this release.
If you are installing a new instance of i2b2 we recommend you refer to the installation documentation found on the i2b2 community wiki. This documentation will guide you through the entire installation process.
i2b2 Release 1.7.09b does not contain code changes to any of the i2b2 software components. The release contains a fix to how a configuration file was packaged up wit the i2b2 Software.
