In the context of a support case, it is required that one provides information on the version and revision of the OutSystems Platform being used.
This post explains how to obtain such information from the system, in any of the components.
Versioning in OutSystems is identified by 4 sets of digits in the form of M.m.b.r. These represent:
In the OutSystems Platform, versioning exists for:
This versioning implies that:
You can obtain the version of Service Studio under Help -> About and check the numbers that appear on the popup that just opened.
You can obtain the version of Integration Studio under Help -> About and check the numbers that appear on the popup that just opened.
You can obtain the version of the platform installed on a server by accessing the server, and then, execute the configuration tool and go to the menu option “Help” -> “About”. It will open a popup that states which version of the software is installed. Beware that after checking this, you must close this utility without applying and exiting.
If you are in the java platform, you have to open a file that is in the root folder of your installation called version.txt and. For example, if you are using the command line and installed the platform on the standard folders, you can execute “cat /opt/outsystems/platform/version.txt” and you will see the installed version. If you are using the .NET stack this is an alternate way of checking the version because this file also exists in that stack.
You can obtain the metadata version and the service center version by logging in to service center and then, in the right sidebar, the version will be listed under the current working mode.
You can obtain the LifeTime version by logging in to LifeTime and then scroll down to the footer of the page and check what is written there.
You can obtain the system components version by going to Service Center and then, in the “Factory” menu, go to the “Applications” sub-menu and filter by “System Components”. You will see in the description of the filtered application the installed version.
And if you want to confirm the specific version number of one of the system components, just enter the details of the application - each component is listed and has its own version number in the description.
