Upgrade guidelines for Connect ACSB 2.3.6 to 3.0.0

Is there any upgrade guideline that is being published for us to upgrade our production plugins to ACSB 3.0.0. We attempted an upgrade recently but had to rollback.

I see that public_key column was dropped in commit: 187026a

and

authentication and cloud_id columns were added in commit: 5fe4fdb . This is failing the startup of our plugin in production environments.

Please recommend a path forward.

@SumeetSingh please see the thread below for links to more details. Also see the Jira issues themselves.

db.changelog-master.yaml contains changes to the database schema for AtlassianHostRepository. If you are not using Spring Data JPA, you may need to apply corresponding changes.

Can you describe the problem you are facing in more detail?

Hi @epehrson thanks for the prompt response.

As you suspected, the startup of application is failing (JPA validation failures) due to missing column.

  • Although we are using Spring Data JPA, but since we have our own table schemas to manage as well, we are maintaining a separate (liquibase based) mechanism for managing database schema upgrades.

  • As you pointed out, we are planning to make the required column addition and removal. The only thing we are wondering, what would be the impact of removing public_key column.

  • I will try to search for documentation on semantic meaning and usage of newly inserted columns. (cloud_id and authentication)

  • We are not currently in process of migrating the application to Forge. So did not dig too deep into posts and articles related to Connect to Forge migration. Is that something that is going to become a requirement in near future ? Are Connect apps being completely phased out ?

@SumeetSingh, as you can see from pull request below, the publicKey field was not used anywhere. It was simply removed in a major version of the library because of the breaking change to the AtlassianHost API class.

I believe the blog below is still the most comprehensive statement on the future of Connect and Connect-on-Forge. But expect more comms on the topic :slight_smile:

Hi @SumeetSingh , the cloud_id and authentication are for Connect-on-Forge apps only and they are for allowing apps to authenticate using OAuth 2.0. There is no documentation for that at this point except the code comment, we will schedule this work of adding more documentations around this.
