Hi all, my company is at long last looking into upgrading Spiratest from the ancient 3.2 to the new & shiny v5.0 in the very near future.
I've had a trawl through documentation as well as the knowledge base & forums and have found info describing the upgrade from 4.2 to 5.0 and I know that there are DB changes between 4.x & 5.0, I also assume that there were changes between 3.2 & 4.x.
We have been using Spiratest for about 5 years, although ive only been with the company for 2 years. During that time the Upgrade has been discussed several times & then parked due to Timescales, Resource & Risk.
We have somewhere in the region of 50 active projects and need to retain our existing Test Cases, Incidents and all Workflow & User Data.
From what I've seen there is not a logical upgrade path directly from 3.2 to 5.0, and so I am expecting this to be quite painful & time consuming.
Is it best to plan for an upgrade from 3.2 to 4.2 and then a second upgrade from 4.2 to 5.0?
Are we best going through the upgrade process or starting again with a brand new v5.0 install & then trying to import data from our current system - assuming that is possible.
Can someone please confirm what the best method is going to be to perform this upgrade.
