How to Manage Your Community Central Upgrade

Bamboo  Community Central is an application that bundles several products and includes countless features. As a result, upgrading from an older version to the newest version may prove tricky, as you naturally want to make sure that all of the products and features are present and accounted for. In this article, we’ll show you how to utilize the Manage Community Central upgrades option to ensure that your upgrade is
completed appropriately, and with all of your features intact.

In this example, we will be upgrading Community Central from R1.0 to R1.1.

After you have successfully upgraded your software, a warning message will appear on the Community Central page asking you to check the upgrade status in the Upgrade Manager section to determine the availability of upgrades.

In order to manage your upgrades, you will need to follow these steps:

Step 1: Go to Site Actions and click the Community Central Control Panel option.  From there, in the Upgrade Manager section, click Manage Community Central upgrades.

Step 2: Select the site(s) whose master page(s) you would like to upgrade in the Optional Master Upgrades section.  After you have selected your desired site(s), click the Upgrade button.

After the process has finished, the Upgrade Status column will report the status for each site:

  • Succeeded: The site has been updated successfully.
  • Failed: The site upgrade was unsuccessful. Please refer to your Upgrade Log for details.

Once your upgrade has been completed successfully, you will see that the warning message is no longer shown on the Community Central page and that all the features for the new version are intact and ready to use.
