How to properly upgrade Axelor


I’m using Axelor 6.1.7 and I wanted to upgrade since version 6.1.8 is out. I’m using docker, so I decide to delete the container and the volumes pointing to tomcat. And rebuild the container using the new war. Everything seems fine, but I can’t open the modules and the console prints :

2022-04-07 22:16:17.197 DEBUG 96 — [nio-8080-exec-4] com.axelor.rpc.Resource : Records found: 0

By the way, the about Axelor gives some weird information :


Some post on the forum says that I have to rebuild everything and make a diff between the old and new database and apply the changes to the new one. But what does that mean and why on earth would I do that? Is the database updated with every minor release?

If you can give me some insight, thanks,

we need to compare changes for DB :slight_smile: , there is no proper way axelor guys told yet, but as it is not major change, so you will be in less hassle
good luck

How can I compare the changes? I have dumped the Axelor 6.1.7 and 6.1.8 databases with pg_dumb and there are more than 240,000 changes. Mainly because of the dates, but not only, because there is no way to apply changes with such different files.

Can you explain more precisely how to modify, for example, the 6.1.7 database with the new data from the 6.1.8 databases? For example, how to compare the changes and how to update the database.

Thank you,


Between these two minor releases, there should be no major database changes.
If there is a modification, it is unlikely that you will use them.
If you have already made some settings, it is better to point the v.6.1.8 application to the old database. The Hibernate JPA ORM will automatically create the new data structures in the old database.
If you want to compare, you only need to realize the differences between the database schemas, without the data, to estimate a first impact for you.
Below are the changes from v.6.1.8

Thank you @PakMax,

I don’t know why I didn’t think to compare the schema instead of the database contents, but I was able to update the application using this information.
