Upgrading from an older version


  1. To connect the new product version, to the database of the previous version, configure the following files:  

    1. Configure <G-REG_HOME>/repository/conf/datasources/master-datasources.xml. For more information on how to do this for your database, see Working with Databases
    2. Navigate to the <G-REG _HOME>/repository/conf directory, and update the datasource references in user-mgt.xmlregistry.xml and api-manager.xml files, 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. If you have either changed the default H2 CarbonDB, or created separate databases for user management, identity etc. in G-Reg 5.1.0, then point to the same databases in the respective configuration files of G-Reg 5.2.0 accordingly.

      Code Block
      <dbConfig name="wso2registry">
      Code Block
        <Property name="dataSource">jdbc/WSO2CarbonDB</Property>
      Code Block
  2. 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 < G-REG_HOME>/repository/conf/registry.xml file as shown below.

    Code Block
    <!--number of resources submit for given indexing thread -->
    <!--number of worker threads for indexing -->
    <!-- location storing the time the indexing took place-->
