Before Upgrading (for SRM Profiler/STM users only)

The SRM Profiler (also known as STM) reached EOL on January 1, 2022 and therefore integration between SRM and SRM Profiler is no longer supported. If you still have SRM Profiler integrated with SRM, you will need to disable integration before updating. Because the SRM license is held on the SRM Profiler, you will then need to deactivate the license and apply it to SRM.

If you try to upgrade while SRM Profiler integration is still active, the installation is halted and a warning message is displayed.

Step 1 - Disable SRM Profiler

  1. Navigate to Settings > All Settings > SRM Settings > Manage SRM Profiler Module Integration.

  2. Click Disable Integration.

Step 2 - Deactivate the License from the SRM Profiler

  1. Access the STM console (http://<ip address>:9000) using administration login credentials.

  2. Go to Settings > License Manager, then click Deactivate.

    You will receive a pop up window that the license has been deactivated.

Step 3 - Apply the License to SRM

  1. Navigate to Settings > All Settings.

  2. In the Details section, click License Manager.

  3. Find SRM in the list of products and click Activate.

  4. Enter the license details for SRM from your customer portal.

Step 4 - Uninstall the SRM Profiler
