Port Argument Triggers ORDS File To Be Recreated (Doc ID 2731967.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 16, 2022

Applies to:

Oracle REST Data Services - Version 20.2 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Configured SSL (using port 7778) for ORDS Standalone mode.
APEX is accessible using the Standalone mode SSL port 7778.

Excerpts from file:


Starting ORDS Standalone mode from a script and passing the argument -> --port 7778

This is recreating the file and removing all the SSL-related parameters from the file and shows jetty.port=7778

Removal of the --port argument fromm the script helps prevent this behavior.

It is not mandatory that this argument be present since the port is also defined within the file. However, it’s nice to have it because it causes the port number to be be explicitly displayed with a process list command:

$ ps -ef | grep ords
... /bin/java -jar /ora/app/oracle/product/ords/ords.war standalone --apex-images /ora/app/oracle/product/apex/images --port 7778

Is there a way to specify the port argument in the script so that the port does not change from https to http and these parameters (, ssl.cert, ssl.cert.key, are retained?
