Configure the Stat Central Agent character map

The Stat® Central Agent defaults to a character map of ISO-8859-1, which is compatible with sites that are upgrading from older versions of Stat. If desirable, the agent can be configured to use UTF-8.

Open <STAT_HOME>\app\bin\standalone.conf.bat.
Open <STAT_HOME>/app/bin/run.conf.

Setting up support for AES256 Ciphers for SFTP

The configuration of your SSH server determines which ciphers are used when connecting to the Stat® Central Agent. The Stat Central Agent currently supports the following cipher configurations:

To configure J2SE 1.7 or 1.8 to support AES256, you need to download and apply the Java® Cryptography Extension (JCE). To do this:

Download the Java Cryptography Extension (JCE), which is contained in the appropriate zip file ( or to a temp folder and unzip the file.
Browse to the JAVA_HOME/jre/lib/security directory under your installation of JAVA_HOME.
Rename local_policy.jar to local_policy.jar.strong.
Rename US_export_policy.jar to US_export_policy.jar.strong.
Paste both files into the JAVA_HOME/jre/lib/security folder.

Configure Web Client to use HTTPS

This functionality is supported for the Standalone platform only.

It is recommended that you first configure the Stat® Central Agent without https and validate that it can be started and is functional before switching to https.

Delete <STAT_HOME>/app/standalone/tmp.
Once you have the keystore, move it to <STAT_HOME>/app/standalone.
Go to <STAT_HOME>/app/ standalone/standalone-full.xml and turn on SSL.
Move <STAT_HOME>/app/standalone/deployments/stat-agent.ear to a location outside of the <STAT_HOME> folder for backup purposes
Locate the stat-agent.ear file in from this distribution package and copy it into <STAT_HOME>/app/standalone/deployments.
If you input http://<servername>:8080/stat, you will automatically be directed to the secure location of https://<servername>:8443/stat.

Connection pool idle time

This feature allows the site to define the length of time before the Stat® Central Agent connection pool times out database connections. The default is 15 minutes. However, Java® could take up to 2x as long to actually disconnect from the environment.

CAUTION: Shorter times could adversely affect agent performance.
