Version 13.0 Patch 2

Patch 2 for Version 13.0 introduces a lot of new features in addition to a number of fixes.

Applying the Patch

After applying the patch, a restart of Railo is required, and performing a re-index of search is recommended to populate automatic suggestion search terms (see more below)..

You can restart Railo in one of two ways:

A) If you have local web server access, search for the application "Railo-Tomcat Service Control". Open the application and click Stop, then Start.
B) If you do not have server access, goto


Enter your password (default is connections), and click the restart button.

Note that the intranet will not be available for 1 to 5 minutes as Railo restarts.

To re-index your site:

1) Login as administrator, and click the admin link.
2) Under the Settings, Global Config option, choose Site Search.
3) Click the "re-index my site data" button.

Note that depending on the amount of content you have, a site re-index may range from a few minutes to a few hours. During the re-index process, some items may not be returned in search until the re-index process is complete. It is recommended to run the re-index off hours.

Common Issues

      e.g. If you have a document titled "ACHCompliance Manual", "ACHCompliance" will be suggested after you type "ach"
    • Suggest matches on employee names will return the full name
      e.g. If you type "mark" it will suggest "Mark Anderson", "Mark David", "Mark Young", etc.

  2. Applications

      • trigger comparison options changed from symbols (=,<, >) to words (equal, less than, greater than, ...)
