Use an extra vmoptionsfile for additional java options
When PAS starts in a Windows environment it will read the phenixidservice.vmoptions file where java options are located.
Linux installations will read its java options from the start-PhenixID.sh.
Java options might be things like for instance proxy settings as explained here.
The phenixidservice.vmoptions file and the start-PhenixID.sh script are located in the the /bin folder in the PAS installation folder. The /bin folder is replaced during the upgrade and as a result any custom java option will be lost.
Place a file with the name extraoptions.vmoptions in the /config folder. This file will remain untouched during upgrades.
The location of the extraoptions.vmoptions can be customized on a Windows installation by modifying -include-options in the phenixidservice.vmoptions file. This change will however be affected during upgrade as mentioned above. See below:
Default behavior since PAS 4.1.x on Windows.
Available on Linux from PAS 4.6.x.
