Use the following installation guides to upgrade your qTest applications.
Note: If you are wanting to perform a fresh install of a qTest application refer to the OnPremise Install Guide.
Before You Begin
Additionally, prerequisite applications need to be installed and running before deploying your qTest applications. Below are instructions to install and configure these prerequisite applications when upgrading from qTest Manager 9.0 to 9.1.5.
- Install prerequisite applications on Windows
- Install prerequisite applications on Ubuntu/CentOS
- Setup an NFS folder on Windows
- Setup an NFS folder on Linux
Upgrading a qTest Manager Version Older than 8.7.3?
In the event, you are upgrading from a qTest Manager version that is older than 8.7.3 you will also need to perform additional upgrades to your prerequisite applications.
If you are upgrading qTest Manager from:
- 7.7.3 to 8.1.5-install Postgres 9.4
- 8.1.5 to 8.4.4-upgrade to Postgres 9.5 and Java 8
- 8.4.4 to 8.7.3-no prerequisite application upgrades required
- 8.7.3 to 9.0- upgrade to the following:
- Redis 2.8.19
- RabbitMQ 3.7
- Postgres 9.5.4 to 9.6.6
- MongoDB 3.2-3.6
- 9.0 to 9.1.5-no prerequisite application upgrades required. Redis and RabbitMQ removed from the prerequisite list.
Important: We provide a range of supported versions for the prerequisite components so that OnPremise customers can easily maintain qTest OnPremise over time. This reduces the need for you to upgrade every prerequisite component each time you upgrade qTest to the most recent version.
'Old' Insights Report Scheduler Removed
The 'Old' Report Scheduler for Insights is now removed from production and all customers will be using the 'New' Report Scheduler that released with Insights 1.14, on November 8, 2017.
Customers who have yet to migrate your report schedules are automatically moved to the 'new' Report Scheduler, which is more reliable and schedules reports to run in your local timezone instead of the previous UTC-0.
All of your saved reports will remain, but you will lose the report schedules. You will need to reschedule your desired reports using the 'new' Report Scheduler.
Suggested Action Item Before Upgrade: Note your existing report schedules (one way is to capture a screenshot) of your current schedule from the Manage Saved Reports screen. You can use your existing report schedule as a reference when implementing your report schedules in the 'new' Report Scheduler. To remedy this, read the Manage and Schedule reports with the 'new' Report Scheduler article.
