FishEye 2.10 upgrade guide
Below are some important notes on upgrading to FishEye 2.10. For details of the new features and improvements in this release, please read the FishEye 2.10 release notes.
- As of FishEye 2.10 the RepositoryAdminService API enforces permission checking. If you're writing a plugin that uses that API make sure to use ImpersonationService.doPrivilegedAction to execute the calls in priviledged mode.
- Note that as of FishEye 2.9 the JDBC driver for MySQL is no longer bundled with FishEye/Crucible – due to license restrictions the MySQL JDBC driver cannot be bundled with FishEye/Crucible. Please download the driver from http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/connector/j/ and install it to the FISHEYE_INST/lib directory. For more information see Migrating to MySQL.
- Test your upgrades in your test environment before rolling into production.
- Back up your entire Fisheye instance (see Backing up and restoring Fisheye data):
- If you are backing up your Fisheye instance using the Admin interface, tick all of the 'Include' checkboxes (e.g. repository and application caches, plugins and their configuration data, SQL database, etc).
- If you are backing up your Fisheye instance using the command-line interface, do not use any exclusion options.
If you are already running a version of FishEye, please follow the instructions in the general FishEye upgrade guide.
