Release note Hermod 3.1.2

Version: 3.1.2

Release Date: 2021-06-15


The Smart ID Messaging component Hermod 3.1.2 has been released. 

Important note

Important note regarding Spring Boot

From version 3.0, Hermod has been updated to use Spring Boot 2.x and Java 11. The deployment and configuration is NOT backward compatible, but the functionality is. Many configuration properties have been renamed or changed and manual update of the Hermod configuration file IS REQUIRED. For more information, see Upgrade Hermod from 2.x to 3.x

If you are upgrading from older version you might also be required to create/alter database tables. More information can be found in the last sections of Upgrade Hermod.

Configuration exceptions

Due to a bug in Spring you might have to do this if you get configuration exceptions when starting Hermod, for example:

java.lang.IllegalStateException: No subdirectories found for mandatory directory location 'file:./config/*/'.

For Hermod in Kubernetes

  1. Add an environment variable called SPRING_CONFIG_LOCATION as seen below:

       value: "optional:classpath:/,optional:classpath:/config/,optional:file:./,optional:file:./config/"

For Docker compose

  1. If you are running Docker compose, create an empty directory inside the mapped config directory.
