You can perform an in-place upgrade of your current vRealize Automation 6.2.5 environment to 7.4. You use upgrade procedures specific to this version to upgrade your environment.

An in-place upgrade is a three-stage process. You update the components in your current environment in this order.

  1. vRealize Automation appliance

  2. IaaS web server

  3. vRealize Orchestrator

You must upgrade all product components to the same version.

The vRealize Production Test Upgrade Assist Tool analyzes your vRealize Automation 6.2.x environment for any feature configuration that can cause upgrade issues and checks that your environment is ready for upgrade. To download this tool and related documentation, go to the VMware vRealize Production Test Tool download product page.

Property dictionary controls that are not supported after upgrade can be restored using vRealize Orchestrator and property dictionary relationships.

If you have workflows in your source environment that contain deprecated code, see the vRealize Automation Extensibility Migration Guide for information about the code changes required for conversion to event broker subscriptions.

Beginning with vRealize Automation 7.2, JFrog Artifactory Pro is no longer bundled with the vRealize Automation appliance. If you upgrade from an earlier version of vRealize Automation, the upgrade process removes JFrog Artifactory Pro. For more information, see Knowledge Base 2147237.

Note:

If you have customized your current vRealize Automation 6.2.5 environment, contact your CCE support staff for additional upgrade information.
