Before You Begin



Upgrade qTest Insights from 1.12.2 to 1.15.3

Shutdown and Backup your Current Deployment

Access the directory where you've extracted the docker deployment package of qTest Insights 1.12.2 (docker-deployment-4.3), shut it down and create a backup.

$ ./shutdown
$ ./backup

Download docker-deloyment-4.4 package

This package supports the upgrade of qTest Insights from version 1.12.2 to version 1.15.3


Extract the Package

 $ tar -zxf docker-deployment-4.4.tar.gz 

Access the docker-deployment-4.4 directory

 $ cd docker-deployment-4.4


Choose either way:

  • To keep all applications in your previous deployment being upgraded, override the /profiles directory of docker-deployment-4.4 with that directory of docker-deployment-4.3
 $ cp -r /<path to your docker-deployment-4.3 package>/docker-deloyment-4.3/profiles/ .
  • OR use configure command if you want to specify each application to be upgraded (for HTTP)
 $ ./configure --insights-url "http://<IP of current machine>:<insights port>" --insights-http "<insights port>" --cluster "<IP address of qTest machine>"
  • OR use configure command if you want to specify each application to be upgraded (for HTTPS)
 $ ./configure --ssl-key "<SSL Key>" --ssl-cert "<SSL Cert>" --ssl-ca "<SSL Ca>" --insights-url "https://<IP of current machine>:<insights https port>" --insights-https "<insights https port>" --cluster "<IP address of qTest machine>"


Upgrading will keep all current data of upgraded applications.

 $ ./upgrade

Start the Deployment Process 

 $ ./startup

The script will download the application images and qTest components to the Docker. It may take couple of hours depending on your network connection.
