Upgrade Tanzu Application Platform GUI

This topic describes how to upgrade Tanzu Application Platform GUI outside of a Tanzu Application Platform profile installation. If you installed Tanzu Application Platform through a profile, see Upgrading Tanzu Application Platform instead.

Considerations

As part of the upgrade, Tanzu Application Platform updates its container with the new version.

As a result, if you installed Tanzu Application Platform GUI without the support of a backing database, you lose your in-memory data for any manual component registrations when the container restarts. While the update is pulling the new pod from the registry, users might experience a short UI interruption and might need to re-authenticate because the in-memory session data is rebuilt.

Upgrade within a Tanzu Application Platform profile

If you installed Tanzu Application Platform GUI as part of a Tanzu Application Platform profile, see Upgrading Tanzu Application Platform.

Upgrade Tanzu Application Platform GUI individually

These steps only apply to installing Tanzu Application Platform GUI individually, not as part of a Tanzu Application Platform profile.

To upgrade Tanzu Application Platform GUI outside of a Tanzu Application Platform profile:

  1. Ensure your repository has access to the new version of the package by running:

    tanzu package available list tap-gui.tanzu.vmware.com -n tap-install
    

    For example:

    $ tanzu package available list tap-gui.tanzu.vmware.com -n tap-install
    - Retrieving package versions for tap-gui.tanzu.vmware.com...
      NAME                      VERSION  RELEASED-AT
      tap-gui.tanzu.vmware.com  1.0.1    2021-12-22 17:45:51 +0000 UTC
      tap-gui.tanzu.vmware.com  1.0.2    2022-01-25 01:57:19 +0000 UTC
    
  2. Perform the package upgrade by using the targeted package update version. Run:

    tanzu package installed update tap -p tap-gui.tanzu.vmware.com -v VERSION  --values-file TAP-GUI-VALUES.yaml -n tap-install
    

    Where:

    • VERSION is the desired target version of Tanzu Application Platform GUI.
    • TAP-GUI-VALUES is the configuration values file that contains the configuration used when you installed Tanzu Application Platform GUI.
  3. Verify that you upgraded your application by running:

    tanzu package installed get tap-gui -n tap-install
