Upgrade incompatability

Warning

Please do not upgrade to 3.3 or later from 2.3 or earlier version of Portal.

If you need to upgrade such a system, please apply the upgrades up to 2.4.x and then install Portal 3.3. Upgrades from earlier than 2.4 to Portal 3.3 and later are not supported.

Latest Portal 2.4 upgrade compability is still tested, but will be removed as of Portal 4.0

Upgrade instructions

Note

When upgrading to 3.3 (or later versions) from any version prior to 3.3. Make sure all running archive jobs are completed or data loss may occur.

This is because the “old” queue will no longer exists so any jobs still in that queue will not be executed.

Category in Release Notes

From Portal 3.3. all tickets have one or several Categories, to make it easier to see and understand what areas have been changed in the latest release. Some requires some explanations:

  • Admin - This is the Admin UI in the Portal Web, but also related to things like installation and configuration from the command line
  • Collections - Everything that has to do with Collections
  • Metadata - Everything that has to do with metadata display or configuration
  • Portal - This is sort of the rest, if it does not fit in any other area it will be portal
  • Searches - This is the Search UI as well as the display of the search results
