Update EQuIS Professional


Prepare to Update


Follow the steps below if upgrading from a previous build of EQuIS Professional.

Review the release notes for the new build.

If upgrading from EQuIS Version 5, please contact Support. The upgrade process will involve converting the ID values in each database and preparing to upgrade to EQuIS Version 6 prior to upgrading to EQuIS Version 7. Note that this must be done prior to upgrading the database! This step is only done once when upgrading.

For all upgrades, update each EQuIS Database to the latest schema (Update EQuIS Database).

The ST_LOG table is intended to store logging information on a short-term basis. If your ST_LOG table is large, you may consider periodically truncating that table (e.g. prior to a database upgrade).

Custom formats created for EDP/EDGE for previous versions will need to be recompiled to work with EQuIS 7. Contact Support for further information on recompiling the formats.

Use the EQuIS Report Publisher to update published System Reports to the current version.
