VMware Identity Manager requires the Java Runtime Environment (JRE).
The required JRE version is packaged with the VMware Identity Manager installer. When you upgrade VMware Identity Manager, you are prompted to upgrade the JRE version too.
If you want to upgrade JRE on the VMware Identity Manager server at any other time, follow these steps to ensure that the VMware Identity Manager service continues to work correctly after the JRE upgrade.
- Stop the VMware IDM, Elasticsearch, and VMware IDM Cert Proxy services.
- Install the new JRE version.
- Update the JAVA_HOME environment variable to point to the new JRE.
- Restart the VMware IDM, Elasticsearch, and VMware IDM Cert Proxy services.
