  4. To connect the new product version to the upgraded database, configure the following files:  
    1. Change the configurations accordingly in all datasources of the <PRODUCT_HOME>/repository/conf/datasources/master-datasources.xmlfile, to point them to the upgraded database. For more information on how to do this for your database type, see Working with Databases.
    2. Go to the <PRODUCT _HOME>/repository/conf directory and update the datasource references in user-mgt.xmlregistry.xml and api-manager.xml to match the updated configurations in the master-datasources.xml file which you made in the above step. The following are sample configurations if the datasource is jdbc/WSO2CarbonDB.

      Code Block
      <dbConfig name="wso2registry">
      Code Block

      Code Block
  5. If there are several 1000s of artifacts in the system, increase the value of the <indexingFrequencyInSeconds> property (e.g. to 10), or reduce the value of the <batchSize> property (e.g. to 10) in the <GREG_HOME>/repository/conf/registry.xml file as shown below.

    <!-- location storing the time the indexing took place-->
  6. Download the org.wso2.carbon.greg.migrate.client-5.0.0.jar file and copy it to the <GREG_HOME>/repository/components/dropins directory. If you use a clustered/distributed setup, copy the JAR file to the master nodes. 
  7. Start the WSO2 Governance Registry 5.0.1 with the following command options to migrate the registry configurations. If you have a clustered/distributed setup, run the following command options in master node only.

    Code Block
    -Dmigrate=5.0.0 -DmigrateReg=true
    For example,
    Linux: sh -Dmigrate=5.0.1 -DmigrateReg=true

    Windows: wso2server.bat -Dmigrate=5.0.1 -DmigrateReg=true

    It is recommended to restart all the WSO2 Governance Registry 5.0.1 instances.
