Upgrade Notes

When a new version of ER/Studio Portal becomes available, you should upgrade to take advantage of the latest features and fixes. Also, when the ER/Studio Repository software is upgraded, you must upgrade the Portal. The Repository and Portal software releases are synchronized to ensure Portal users can take advantage of any Repository updates.

Upgrading the Portal requires a reinstallation of the Portal application and you should follow the installation instructions in the Install Guide to accomplish this.

Once the Portal application is upgraded, you must resynchronize the Portal with the Repository. ER/Studio upgrades usually require the diagrams to be updated to the latest version. Once the Repository diagrams have been updated, you’ll need to synchronize the Portal Repository to ensure that it is up to date. For information on synchronizing the Portal, see the "Administrative Tasks" section of the User Guide.
