I’m helping out on upgrading a sonarqube instance, but I’m new to sonarqube myself.
On https://docs.sonarqube.org/display/SONAR/Upgrading it is mentioned that one needs to upgrade to intermediate LTS versions first, before upgrading to the target version, if any of course.
Client needs to upgrade from 5.6.6 to 7.3, which of the two below will be my upgrade path knowing that 5.6 is a LTS?
- 5.6.6 > 5.6.7 LTS > 6.7.5 LTS > 7.3
- 5.6.6 > 6.7.5 LTS > 7.3
Or more in general, if one is not on the latest patch-version of a certain LTS, do you first need to upgrade to the latest patch-version of that same LTS version, or can one directly safely jump to the next LTS? (the Release Notes and linked tickets at https://jira.sonarsource.com/jira/secure/ReleaseNote.jspa?projectId=10930&version=13778 don’t seem to indicate breaking changes for 5.6.7 and theoretically that should be the case for a patch-version-upgrade; just checking to be sure)
