R4J BETA Installation Process

Preparation

For any BETA version installation, we recommend to do the following preparations.

  • Prepare a staging environment with a setup similar to your production environment.

Beta releases are still undergoing the final stages of testing. We strongly recommend that you first run and verify a BETA version on a staging system.

  • Backup data for the staging environment before proceeding. 

  • Schedule upgrades at a time when app users low to none. There may be required steps after installation that need time to process.

  • Enable logging before installation so that logs can be exported, in case any errors occur.

    • Go to Administration > System > Logging and Profiling

      Under Default Loggers section, select DEBUG as Logging Level for com.easesolutions 

  • Read all steps provided before you start. In case of questions, please communicate with our support.

What to Expect

  • No downtime is expected for the Jira instance. For some upgrades, there may be downtime for the R4J application. 

  • If there are additional steps required after the upgrade, they must be executed to avoid unexpected errors in the application.
