Step 5: Updating the Orchestrator connection strings

Downloading uipathctl

uipathctl is included in the as-installer.zip installation package. To download installer.zip, see Downloading the installation packages.

Generating the configuration file

To generate the cluster_config.json configuration file, take one of the following steps:

  • Option A: Generate the latest cluster_config.json file:
    uipathctl manifest get-revisionuipathctl manifest get-revision
  • Option B: List all the past cluster_config.json files and determine which one you want to choose:
    uipathctl manifest list-revisionsuipathctl manifest list-revisions

Replacing the connection string and starting the installation

  1. Move the versions.json file to the same directory as input.json. You can get versions.json from the Automation Suite installation folder.
  2. Provide the new connection strings for installed products.
    To provide the restored connection string to the Orchestrator service, add or update sql_connection_str under orchestrator in the input.json file:
    "orchestrator": {
      "sql_connection_str": "<restored orchesrator connection string>",   (added line)
      "enabled": true
    }"orchestrator": {
      "sql_connection_str": "<restored orchesrator connection string>",   (added line)
      "enabled": true
    }
    If Test Automation tables are placed inside the standalone Orchestrator database, you can also add the same connection string for Test Automation feature inside the input.json file:
    "orchestrator": {
      "testautomation": {
        "enabled": true,
        "sql_connection_str": "<restored orchesrator connection string>"
      },
      "sql_connection_str": "<restored orchesrator connection string>",   (added line)
      "enabled": true
    }"orchestrator": {
      "testautomation": {
        "enabled": true,
        "sql_connection_str": "<restored orchesrator connection string>"
      },
      "sql_connection_str": "<restored orchesrator connection string>",   (added line)
      "enabled": true
    }
  3. Run the installer:
    uipathctl manifest apply input.json --only orchestrator --versions versions.jsonuipathctl manifest apply input.json --only orchestrator --versions versions.json
