Upgrade Notes

Crucible 1.6.3 Upgrade Notes

  • The configuration storage for the bundled File-system, Confluence and Subversion Light SCM plugins changed. Please follow the procedure below.
  • The Light SCM plugin API was changed in this release. Light SCM plugins compiled against the old API will not work in this release of Crucible.

Crucible 1.6.3 Upgrade Procedure:
Due to a configuration change, you will need to delete and add your LightSCM repositories again:

  1. Before you shut down Crucible, take a note of your Light SCM configuration. You can view this configuration in the 'Repository List' Administration page, in the 'LightSVN', 'Confluence' and 'File System' sections.
  2. Follow the general instructions on upgrading Crucible.
  3. While Crucible is shut down, delete the confluence, svn and filesystem config files in FISHEYE_INST/var/plugins/user.
  4. Once Crucible has been restarted, add the Light SCM repositories from step 1 back in again.

Upgrade Procedure

Upgrade a test environment first

As always, please test your upgrades in your test environment before rolling into production.
