AEM - Upgrading to AEM 6.5

Avatar

Level 2

Good morning,

on my machine I have AEM 6.4 updated to Service Pack 6.4.5.
The originated version of the CMS was 6.4.


I would like to update the Cms to version 6.5, reading the Adobe official documentation I can't understand if I have to run the part of Repository Restructuring?


Could you tell me the correct procedure to perform?

Thanks

I don't think so you need repository restructuring if upgrading from 6.4 to 6.5

 

The restructuring was introduced from 6.4

Hi @robertol6836527 ,

 

It is not the case that the upgrade won't work if you don't do the restructuring. That is totally dependent on your use case. If you are using some features which are now moved to a new location, you would then need to restructure those things. Although, I would like to add, many of them are backward compatible, so they should work in the old location as well.

 

Example:

The workflow models are under /etc/workflow/models in the old versions. 

But from 6.5 onwards it is under : 

/libs/settings/workflow/models

/conf/global/settings/workflow/models

/var/workflow/models

 

For a more detailed version, you can go through : https://experienceleague.adobe.com/docs/experience-manager-65/deploying/restructuring/all-repository...
