    Hello fellow Communities members

     

    I wanted to share this upgrade plan template that you can use. This can be used as generic baseline for your upgrade planning/runbook.

    It's in Excel format which allows you to add comments, additional steps that are for your environment only etc. 

    This includes:

    • Prerequisites
    • Clarity Upgrade
    • PMO Upgrade
    • Jaspersoft upgrade

    Our recommendation, if you are planning an upgrade: would be to schedule a meeting with your Account manager and Clarity Support to go over the filled plan before you proceed with the upgrade.

     

    Hope this helps! -Nika

    That is great. Thanks for sharing.

    One think that comes into my mind is to reword

    Remove all customizations (database objects - SPs, functions, triggers). Those can be created later

    Rather than remove, create installation packages for those or at least document them.

    Hi Martti

    This is a good point, thank you for your comment. I purposefully said it this way because the customization may be different and this is out of scope of our Support. So we don't want to give any specific instructions on this apart from the fact that the general guidance customizations shouldn't be there when the upgrade is running. It's more as a guideline from our part and then once customer is on call with us and Account team, we can definitely suggest to remove / document / package /engage partners if needed.
