MidPoint JAR Signature Status
Since 4.8.1This functionality is available since version 4.8.1.
In order to provide an indication of midPoint build origin, the JAR file is signed by us during the build process. This signature is then checked during the startup of midPoint, and the result is displayed on the About page. There are currently three options there:
midpoint.jar has a signature that was made by us, and is valid.
The "Official build by Evolveum" message is displayed, along with the green "tick" icon.
midpoint.jar has either no signature, or an invalid one, or a valid one but not done by us.
It is also possible that there is no
midpoint.jar here, e.g. if midPoint is run from IDE.
The "Unofficial build" message is displayed, along with the yellow "exclamation mark" icon.
As a special case, overlay build cannot be signed by us, as
midpoint.jar is re-packaged by the overlay build.
To avoid the "Unofficial build" message, the overlay should be marked by the presence of
In such cases, midPoint recognizes it, and displays a special "overlay" message.
