Which version of IBM Docs to I have installed?

posted in: connections, docs, Technical | 0

This morning, after a bit of attempting to work it out for myself .. I ask my good firiend and co speaker Roberto Boccadoro if there was a simple way to work out what version is installed?

WebSphere, Connections and the HTTP Server / Plugins etc all have command line options to find what version (and fixes) are installed and unfortunately its not so simple with docs ..

If you have kept the install files handy you can check but finding out the iFix version under the install\DocsApp directory where there is a handy file called ifix-version.json.

which gives you the iFix version .. which is just a number, 7, 15 or 25 etc. but how does that collate to which Docs version, CR and iFix you have installed?

Roberto has made a searchable list to make it simple to see what iFix version relates to which Docs version.

See Roberto’s awesome blog post here – and thank you so much my friend for doing this as it will save a bunch of time 🙂
