Not able to upgrade from jasper reports server(community edition) from version 6.4.3 to version 7.5.0, Cannot locate script in jasper reports server installation 6.4.3.

I am following steps described in the below upgrade guide link to upgrade from jasper reports server community edition 6.4.3 to 7.5.0,

While trying to execute command in section, Exporting Current Repository Data, I am not able to locate script, in jasper server installation 6.4.3. --everything --output-zip --genkey

I also noticed that the script is also not present in jasper server installation 6.4.0 either.

Please help me locate the script

Cannot use the script instead of, because script does not support the --genkey option and the genkey option seems to be important as the same will be later used for upgrade to 7.5.

As mentioned earlier in the question/ticket, I am using or trying to upgrade "community edition" of JasperReports Server and I cannot find script js-export-ce, in community edition of JasperReports Server 6.4.3.

I am following the upgrade guide for community edition and the upgrade guide asks me to use script js-export-ce, which is not present in jasper server installation version 6.4.3(also not present in version 6.4.0 or 7.5.0)

I think "js-export-ce" in JRS community upgrade guide is misleading. Try ./ in 6.4.3 and ./ in 7.5 instead to migrate your repository content.

Based on JRS community admin guide, it only has js-export and js-import utilities.

The complete command to be executed in step Exporting Current Repository Data is, ( --everything --output-zip --genkey

If your advice is to use instead of, then that does not work either,
./ --everything --output-zip --genkey
fails with the below error,
"Option genkey is not recognized."
The above error is because does not support --genkey option.

Mention of both script and option --genkey in the upgrade guide cannot be a typo.

The --genkey option for export utility is introduced in 7.5.0 . Our upgrade document is misleading and INCORRECT. I am going to file a documentation bug report on this error which affects both community and comercial edition of the document. FYI, only commercial edition is supportable by Tech Support group.

In your case, you should run ./ --everything --output-zip in JRS 6.4.3 installation. You do not need JRS 6.4.3 old key to run your reposiotry content import into JRS 7.5.0. Hope this helps to clarify the situation and sorry for the confusion this has caused.
