Hi Jonathan,

We have deployed Camunda in Kubernetes so that plan of action to upgrade is to

  1. Run the database SQL scripts on the database
  2. Pull the newer Camunda image and deploy

Could you tell me if this is the best approach?

Hello @tinfoilhat ,

you could also download this as zip and extract it.

Your approach then should work. Please always back up the current database before running migration.

Also, I would recommend you do it step-by-step:

  3. Update to 7.13.0
  4. Start engine in 7.13.0

Since I am doing only an upgrade, I need to execute the SQL scripts placed inside the upgrade directory right?
