Attivio Platform 5.6 only supports use of Java SE 11.x JREs. Use of earlier or later Java versions may cause process startup failures or other errors.
Attivio Platform 5.6.2 and later releases require a Java 11.0.3 or later JRE in order to avoid Java bug JDK-8214129.
Once Attivio has been installed, you can change the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) that is used to run Attivio processes. To do so, follow these steps:
- Locate the
attivio.environment.propertiesfile inside the

attivio.java.homeproperty pointing to the home directory of the JRE currently in use.
- Update this value to the location of the new JRE's home directory, e.g.,
Note that this value should be a "Java home" directory (i.e., a folder which contains a

attivio.environment.properties file, however, would only include the home directory:
