Upgrading HotDocs Hub from version 1.24.0 or earlier

Hub versions after 1.24.0 no longer use ApacheDS for user account management. When upgrading from Hub version 1.24.0 or earlier to a later version, you should follow the Upgrading Hub to a version that does not use ApacheDS steps in the Hub help file.

Changes to prerequisites for HotDocs Hub 1.22.a

ApacheDS is no longer required for new on-premise installations of HotDocs Hub.

Upgrading HotDocs Hub to 1.17.0 and later when using HotDocs Web Services

If you are using HotDocs Web Services with Hub and are upgrading to Hub version 1.1.7.0 or later, you must perform additional upgrade steps when performing the upgrade. See Upgrading HotDocs Hub to a later version (step 7) for more information.

Upgrading HotDocs Hub to 1.15.0 and later when using work items

If you are using work items in Hub and are upgrading to Hub version 1.1.5.0 or later, you must run an additional upgrade script when performing the upgrade. See Upgrading HotDocs Hub to a later version (step 8) for more information.

Changes to template IDs in HotDocs Hub 1.3.0

HotDocs Hub version 1.3.0 contains a significant change to how template IDs are assigned when you upload templates to Hub.

Templates uploaded to Hub are now identified using the same template ID as in their template package file; they are not assigned a new, Hub-specific ID when uploaded to Hub. The upgrade changes existing template IDs to the ID from the template package file.

If you currently use the Template Hub API and are directly referencing a template ID in your application, the template ID will no longer be valid when you upgrade to Hub 1.3.0. You will need to update your references to the new template IDs.

See Changes to template IDs in HotDocs Hub 1.3.0 for more information.
