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:
    Site has updated successfully.
  • Failed:
    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.
