    JChem version: 18.17.0-8520

    Knowledge base version:


    Data model has been modified!

    After this update all stored fragments will be deleted from mongo and fragments will not be stored anymore.

    Of course the results (and reports) of earlier single/batch checks are not deleted and remain available.

    Storage of these fragments increased the size of the database and slowed down the checking process, so their deletion

    Benefits of deleting the fragments:

    • Smaller database size,

    • Faster checking process,

    • Decreased memory usage.

    The only problem can be if after this v18.17 update a previous version is installed, because versions before v18.11 were calculating the results solely from those stored fragments.

    Therefore a mongo dump is highly recommended before updating the SW to this v18.17 for having a backup of the earlier data in the case of reverting to a SW version earlier than v18.11.

    (In case of reverting and restoring the mongo to the backup - of course - the results of the new checks will be lost.)

    Admin features

    • Knowledge Base autoupdater is introduced to update the Knowledge Base automatically - if a newer KB version has been released - in configurable time periods: common.autoUpdateScheduler

    • A configurable timeout has been introduced for the check of 1 molecule against all selected queries: searchEngine.check.timeLimit. (Default=60000 ms.).

      Over this time the molecule lands in error.


    • Structure column selection at CSV import was not displayed after selection.

    • Text and CAS search did not return the category- and substance IDs for the hit.

    • In case of any error a default "Error during report generation" message was sent.

      Now the server's error message is displayed.

    • Uploaded temporary files were not deleted from the TMP folder. (Ubuntu: root/tmp)
