0 views June 28, 2020 0

To get the reports and QO metadata in the new version of Intellicus, the upgrade process can be performed in 2 ways.

  1. Upgrade by pointing to previous versions’ Intellicus repository database
  2. Upgrade using iPackager (CAB)

Upgrade by pointing to previous version’s Intellicus repository database

  1. Backup previous version of Intellicus
  2. Un-install previous version of Intellicus
  3. Install new version of Intellicus
  4. If you have applied customizations in your previous version, you will have to replicate them in the new version.
  5. If you have white labeled your previous Intellicus version, you will have to redo the same for the new version.
  6. Restore previous version files like templates, configuration etc. (if applicable)
  7. Start new version of Intellicus
  8. Point to previous version’s Intellicus repository database
  9. Restart Intellicus service

Note: The uninstall process retains few files and folders in Intellicus and does not delete them unless manually deleted. As we would already be taking the backup of previous version, you can delete these files.
Note: As a best practice, we recommend you create backup of Repository Objects (includes any metadata in your previous Intellicus version) using iPackager ((by creating CAB), even in case you are using the ‘pointing to repository database’ upgrade method.

Upgrade using iPackager (CAB)

  1. Backup Intellicus files and folders
  2. Create cab file from old Intellicus using iPackager
  3. Uninstall previous version of Intellicus
  4. Install new version of Intellicus on the machine
  5. If you have applied customizations in your previous version, you will have to replicate them in the new version.
  6. If you have white labeled your previous Intellicus version, you will have to redo the same for the new version.
  7. Merge and upgrade the configuration files, templates etc.
  8. Start new version of Intellicus
  9. Deploy the objects on new Intellicus using CAB deployer
  10. Restart Intellicus service

This process may not bring some objects to new system. They are: i) Saved reports, ii) Logs, iii) Audit data.
