https://docs.camunda.org/manual/latest/update/ is pretty clear on what exactly needs to happen to migrate to 7.7 and to 7.8. I have successfully migrated a test environment to 7.8.
My question is whether it is necessary to actually deploy each intermediate version in each environment, so in in this case, is it necessary to deploy 7.7 and then deploy 7.8?
If you want to upgrade from 7.6 to 7.8 you must also upgrade to 7.7 first.
You don’t have to deploy the 7.7 artifacts before going to 7.8. But make sure to run the update SQL scripts as if you were going from 7.6 to 7.7 to 7.8, so that you don’t end up with an incomplete database schema.
Ok, thanks for the clarification.
We have the same question for Camunda v7.9 and all later version as well.
Provided that we perform the correct db migrations (and also upgrade to the required spring boot version, and everything that follows), is it necessary to actually deploy each version, or can we safely skip versions?
you don’t have to deploy the in-between versions.
