This section lists the files that are required to upgrade your
Layer7 API Gateway
to Release 9.4. These instructions apply to both Software and Appliance Gateway form factors (Hardware and Virtual).
For detailed instructions on upgrading your Gateway, see Upgrade a Software Gateway.
Upgrading a Virtual Appliance?
There is an accelerated upgrade process for the Virtual Appliance form factor of the
Layer7 API Gateway
. For more information, see Expedited Appliance Upgrade. Note that this process cannot be used on Hardware Appliance or Software Gateways
The update files are contained in image files from the distribution archives. For more information, see "Distribution Archive Files" in Release Notes.

Background
The Gateway is designed around two major components: Platform and Application.
  • The
    Platform
    consists of the server that runs the API Gateway appliance and the dependency applications and tools that are located on it. This includes (but not limited to) the Linux kernel, OpenSSL, and MySQL.
  • The
    Application
    is the Java component of the API Gateway. The Application comprises the Oracle Java JDK and the Java programs that comprise the API Management suite
    AdoptOpenJDK
    For Gateway version 9.4 CR3, we recommend AdoptOpenJDK 8u222+
    For Gateway version 9.4 CR4, we recommend AdoptOpenJDK 8u232+
    For Gateway version 9.4 CR5, we recommend AdoptOpenJDK 8u252+
These two components are designed to be updated separately, allowing systems administrators to upgrade the Platform without upgrading the Application. This ensures that the Gateway remains compliant with security protocols and is protected against common threats. A Gateway upgrade involves upgrading both the Platform and Application.
Platform Updates
Platform updates are required for Hardware Appliances and Virtual Appliances. They are not required for Software Gateways. (The expectation is that the host computer on which the Gateway is installed is updated according to best practices.)
Prior to upgrading Gateway, you will need to install the kernel patch, CA_API_PlatformUpdate_64bit_vKernel-2018-10-05.L7P. The patch installation is a one-time requirement for each Gateway upgrade attempt. An upgrade attempt consists of the installation of one or more platform upgrade patches and ends with the installation of a single Gateway upgrade patch.
Install all updates in the order listed. Omitting an update may result in unexpected errors in the Gateway.
For Hardware Appliance Gateways, always install the RHEL patches. For Virtual Appliance Gateways, use the patch (RHEL or CentOS) appropriate for the operating system (as listed in the Gateway Main Menu (Appliance)).

The
CA_API_JDK_Update_1.8.0u152.L7P
patch is required to update the JDK for the older appliances (8.3.01 and older) that have JDK 7 installed. Gateway version 9.4 requires JDK 8. To obtain this patch, visit the CA API Management Solutions & Patches page.
Application Updates for Appliance
If you have an Appliance Gateway (either hardware or virtual), use the following update files:
  • CA_API_Gateway_v9.4.00.L7P
  • CA_SSO_SDK_Compact_v12.52.01.09.L7P
  • (Available in v9.4 CR5) CA_SSO_SDK_Compact_v12.8.03.L7P
    (required only if your Gateway communicates with the CA Single Sign-On product; install after
    CA_API_Gateway_v9.4.00.L7P
    ).
These files are located in the
GEN500000000002101.zip
archive and must be installed after the platform upgrades.
The "CA_SSO_SDK_Compact" patch is required only if your Gateway communicates with the CA Single Sign-On product. This patch must be installed after the main "CA_API_Gateway" patch.
The v9.4 application update patch is cumulative, so it is not necessary to install any prior versions first.
Application Updates for Software
If you have a Software Gateway, use the appropriate update files based on your host operating system:
  • For RHEL/CentOS/SUSE Linux:
    • CA_API_Gateway_v9.4.00.L7P
    • CA_SSO_SDK_Compact_v12.52.01.09.L7P
      (required only if your Gateway communicates with the CA Single Sign-On product; install after
      CA_API_Gateway_v9.4.00.L7P
      ). This file installs the compact version (reduced size) of the SSO SDK.
    • (Available in v9.4 CR5) CA_SSO_SDK_Compact_v12.8.03.L7P
      (required only if your Gateway communicates with the CA Single Sign-On product; install after
      CA_API_Gateway_v9.4.00.L7P
      ).
    • For Solaris:
      L7TECHssg-9.4.00-8872.pkg
      (package includes the SSO SDK)
These files are located in the
GEN500000000002065.zip
archive.
The v9.4 application update patch is cumulative, so it is not necessary to install any prior versions first.
CA Single Sign-On Users, note the following:
  • If the CA Single Sign-On SDK v12.51 or higher
    already exists
    on the Gateway, applying the "CA_SSO_SDK_Compact" patch will
    upgrade
    the SDK to v12.52.01.09 (for both Software and Appliance Gateways).
  • If the CA Single Sign-On SDK v12.51 or higher
    does not already exist
    on the Gateway, applying the "CA_SSO_SDK_Compact" patch will
    not
    install
    the v12.52.01.09 SDK. If you need this SDK, see Install the CA Single Sign-On SDK for Software Gateways to install it manually.
  • If the CA Single Sign-On SDK v12.8.03
    does not already exist
    on the Gateway, applying the "CA_SSO_SDK_Compact" patch will
    not
    install
    the v12.8.03 SDK. If you need this SDK, see Install the CA Single Sign-On SDK for Software Gateways to install it manually. This is applicable for both Software and Appliance Gateways.
