Hi Phil @phil,

Thanks for the patch release!

For the upgrade process from version 2.30, we just need to stop the tomcat service, and replace the WAR file with version 2.31.3 and then restart the service. Will this be enough?

Hi @lli

Yes, that’s correct. Flyway should take care of the db updates when you first start the new version.

However, please note the comment in the upgrade notes about dropping any SQL views you have. In addition some people had problems when upgrading from 2.30 to 2.31 because they had other functions in their DB that needed to be dropped before they could start up successfully.

The flyway scripts run in one single transaction, so if anything fails the DB will not be updated at all, and you can fix the conflicting issue and try again.

If you have any problems, just reach out to us!

Kind regards,
