    Migration from Jive 7 to Jive 8

    rajagka

      Hello,

       

      We are planning to migrate our existing Jive platform to Jive 8. Its currently deployed in Jive 7.

      Can I get a checklist of the things that I need to actually take care of, during migration ?

      We do have some widgets and plugins too.

       

      What kind of support would be provided from Jive community, for such migration activities ?

       

      thanks

      Kasi.

          Hi Kasi,

           

          Here's a document which outlines the process in pretty good detail.

          Hosted Instance Upgrade Process Overview

           

          Many of the migration activities for test runs and the production upgrade will be handled by Jive Hosting. You can work with your Account Manager to start this process. Test runs and prod launch activities are just one part of the process and if you've not done an upgrade before, it may be a good idea to work with either Jive Professional Services or a Jive Partner to guide you through the process and ensure a successful launch.

           

          If you have other questions or need some assistance with your upgrade let me know. We have helped many customers through the upgrade process.

           

          Take care,

          Scott
