Procedure to update Bonita to latest version with Mysql
I need to update Bonita 7.6 to 7.11.5, with Mysql 5.5 to 8
in the documentation:
It looks like I can just run the migration tool completely till the 7.11.5, and then update the Mysql version from 5.5 to 8
Is it correct?
It looks that this procedure is different from Oracle and Postgresql where basically you have to:
- migrate Bonita to 7.8.4
- update the database to supported version
- migrate Bonita from 7.8.4 to 7.11.5
Why this difference? Could you please clarify?
Yes you read correctly. The procedure for mysql is: migrate Bonita, then update mysql.
It's different from postgres/oracle because there is a hard incompatibility between older bonita versions and mysql 8 (meaning, you won't be able to install a bonita 7.8 on a mysql 8).
