Upgrade Process


The following process can be used for upgrading Kinetic Task


Actions to take before you begin the upgrade process

** IMPORTANT NOTE ** Kinetic Task comes with an embedded H2 database to make it easy to get started. This database is not meant for Production Use. Until you configure Kinetic Task for a there will be a warning message displayed at the top of each page, and a more detailed error on the Change Database console.

  1. Navigate to the Change Database information tab (Admin|Setup|Change Database).  This will display the information you will need to apply to the new version of Kinetic Task.  The information displayed will contain your current database configuration.  This Community article will provide you with detailed information.  Note - The Change Database section is what you will want to review.
  2. Navigate to the Source information tab.  This will provide you with the information that you might need to configure in the newly installed version.  Note - The Source information is stored within the Database and because the new Task application is pointing at the Database this is just a precautionary step.
