How to upgrade to a major version¶
New major versions bring compatibility with new Akeneo PIM releases. So the only case you’ll have to perform a major update of the Onboarder bundle is when you are migrating the PIM itself to a new version.
The instructions you will follow to update your PIM are mostly enough to migrate the bundle, you will only need to do a couple more things specific to the Onboarder bundle.
Right before updating you composer dependencies¶
When updating the PIM
composer.json to increase the PIM version, you also need to change the
akeneo/pim-onboarder version. Please refer to How to install the Onboarder bundle to know which version of the
bundle to use.
Then, make sure the Onboarder composer script is present in the
composer.json file, as explained in How to install the Onboarder bundle.
Right after updating you composer dependencies¶
Thanks to the Onboarder composer script, all the migration scripts of the Onboarder bundle should have been copied
upgrades/schema directory, alongside those of the PIM. Before executing the migrations (both those of the PIM
and those of the Onboarder bundle), please make sure to follow the additional instructions of the
contained in the bundle (
vendor/akeneo/pim-onboarder/UPGRADE.md). It will provide you accurate instructions on how
to run the migration scripts.
You can then follow the rest of the PIM upgrade instructions.
