Updating your instance or Jaspersoft version requires three main tasks:
| ||1. ||Export your repository. |
| ||2. ||Update the instance, to accommodate a different instance size and/or to move to a different version of JasperReports Server. |
| ||3. ||Import your repository into your new instance. |
After the upgrade, you'll have to re-apply any customizations you made to the instance outside of the user interface.
You must be logged in as superuser to upgrade.
To upgrade your instance:
| ||1. ||Navigate to Manage > Server Settings. |
| ||2. ||Click Export in the left column. The Export window appears. |
| ||3. ||Name your export data file and select the items to export. Choose Export everything or select specific items. |
| ||4. ||Click the Export button. You'll see a message that your export succeeded, and your file will be saved to your default download location. |
If you are using a yearly subscription, you cannot run two instances on the same subscription. You will need to stop the current instance before creating the new one. In AWS, go to EC2 Dashboard > Instances > Instances to stop the instance.
| ||5. ||Create a new instance that uses the latest version of the Jaspersoft for AWS AMI. |
For instructions on creating an instance, see Launching Instances.
| ||6. ||Log into your new instance as superuser. |
| ||7. ||Navigate to Manage > Server Settings. |
| ||8. ||Click Import in the left column. The Import window appears. |
| ||9. ||Click the Choose File button, and select the file you exported in Step 4. |
| ||10. ||Select your import options. |
| ||11. ||Click the Import button. You'll see a message telling you your import succeeded. |
| ||12. ||If you've customized your instance outside of the user interface, re-apply your changes now. |
