Installation & Setup

Upgrading to Xray 3.70.0 or later from an Xray version prior to 3.70.0

If you are upgrading to Xray 3.70.0 or later from an Xray version prior to 3.70.0, your installation contains RabbitMQ 3.8.x. Feature flags in RabbitMQ have to be enabled before you can upgrade, since Xray 3.70.0 and later contains RabbitMQ 3.11.x and later.

Before you proceed with the upgrade, go to RabbitMQ Upgrade to version 3.11.x and set feature flags in RabbitMQ.


Remember to back up the RabbitMQ password and to add it back to the rabbitmq.conf file.

  1. Stop the current server.

    Stop Xray

    cd $JFROG_HOME/xray/app/bin
    ./xray.sh stop
  2. Extract the contents of the compressed archive and go to the extracted folder.


    mv jfrog-xray-<version>-linux.tar.gz /opt/jfrog/
    cd /opt/jfrog
    tar -xf jfrog-xray-<version>-linux.tar.gz


    Starting from Xray 3.8.x, RabbitMQ bundled with Xray has been upgraded, and it requires an upgrade of the Erlang library. This library can be found on $JFROG_HOME/xray/app/third-party. For more information, see Installing Erlang.

  3. Replace the existing $JFROG_HOME/xray/app with the new app folder.


    # Export variables to simplify commands
    export JFROG_HOME=/opt/jfrog
    export JF_NEW_VERSION=/opt/jfrog/jfrog-xray-<version>-linux
    # Remove app
    rm -rf $JFROG_HOME/xray/app
    # Copy new app
    cp -fr $JF_NEW_VERSION/app $JFROG_HOME/xray/
    # Remove extracted new version
    rm -rf $JF_NEW_VERSION
  4. Manage Xray.

    $JFROG_HOME/xray/app/bin/xray.sh start|stop
  5. Access Xray from your browser at:http://<jfrogUrl>/ui/, go theDashboard tab in theApplicationmodule in the UI.

  6. Check Xray Log.

    tail -f $JFROG_HOME/xray/var/log/console.log
RabbitMQ Upgrade to version 3.11.x

Xray version 3.70.0 and later includes RabbitMQ version 3.11.x later. An upgrade to Rabbit MQ 3.11.x requires feature flags to be enabled. For more information, refer to Required Feature Flags in RabbitMQ 3.11.0.

Enable Feature Flags in Linux Installations

You need to manually run the migration operation for RabbitMQ before you start Xray upgrade for your Linux installation (RPM, Debian, and Linux Archive).

Run the following command in the nodes that run RabbitMQ.

sudo -H -u xray bash -c 'export RABBITMQ_FEATURE_FLAGS="drop_unroutable_metric,empty_basic_get_metric,implicit_default_bindings,maintenance_mode_status,quorum_queue,stream_queue,user_limits,virtual_host_metadata"'
sudo -H -u xray bash -c '/opt/jfrog/xray/app/third-party/rabbitmq/sbin/rabbitmqctl enable_feature_flag all'
