I tried to install it on ARS 7.5. I followed your instructions, but when trying to access the plugin I get the error:
The specified plug-in does not exist. :
MII.ARF.REGEXVALID (ARERR 8755)
I activated the plugin log, and don't see anything extrange.
Could you tell me where to start to solve the problem?
1. Make sure that your <AR System Installation>/pluginsvr/pluginsvr_config.xml file contains MII.ARF.REGEXVALID configuration like this:
<pathelement type="location">C:/Program Files/BMC Software/ARSystem/pluginsvr/regexfilterapi-3.0.jar</pathelement>
2. Make sure that your ar.cfg (or ar.conf) file contains MII.ARF.REGEXVALID configuration like this
Server-Plugin-Alias: MII.ARF.REGEXVALID MII.ARF.REGEXVALID <your arserver name>:9999
3. After you modify these values, restart arplugin. If you don't know how to restart arplugin, just restart the arsystem service.
first of all, your jar location file is "C:/BMCSoftware/ARSystem/pluginsvr/regexfilterapi-3.0.jar" but you write it in your pluginsvr_config.xml file as "C:/BMC Software/ARSystem/pluginsvr/regexfilterapi-3.0.jar". So, remove the space in "BMC Software".
I notice that in your pluignsvr_config.xml, you write (with space after dot)
It must not contain any spaces. It must be
Note: there are some errors in the documentation. I checked the documentation of this plugin and it contains spaces as well. I will revise the documentation and reupload it.
Modify your pluginsvr_config.xml file accordingly then don't forget to restart the arplugin.
That was the error. Changed the files, restarted the service and it's now running. Thank you for this valuable contribution.
I'm creating a def file so the call to the filter api is made using a service wich can be easier to many people (including me), and also can unitarily test the functionality or the regular expression used.
Also I will publish this plug in and the def file on my blog, citing you (if you don't have any inconvenience).
