Upgrade process

To upgrade to Tricentis Tosca 16.0 LTS, follow the steps below:

  1. Upgrade Tosca Commander.

  2. Perform your migrations.

    Tosca Commander stores its project data in repositories. If the data structure, i.e. the schema version, changes, you need to migrate these repositories. You also need to migrate XEngines to upgrade your XModules and linked TestCases.

    You can migrate in one of the following ways:

    • Migrate with the Tosca Administration Console if you have Tosca Server installed. In this case, you can migrate your repositories and XEngines in one step.

      If you want to migrate via the Administration Console, you need to upgrade Tosca Server before you can perform the migration.

    • Migrate manually. In this case, you have to migrate your repositories and XEngines manually and in two separate steps.

    Migrated repositories and TestCases are not downward compatible.

  3. Upgrade Tosca Server and its features.

  4. Upgrade Tosca Extensions, if you use them.

  5. Upgrade your customizations.

For information on changed functionality in version 16.0 LTS, see chapter "Changed functionality".
