Upgrade Portal with Custom Dashboards
we are in the process of upgrading our Cireson Portal from version 220.127.116.11 to 7.4.2012.3
However, we noticed that when we upgraded the testing environment we lost all customizations related to our custom Navigation Nodes and custom Dashboards.
To explain more, we created many new dashboards and many navigation nodes to internal and external content, however when we did the upgrade all these customizations lost. I verified that they are even not available in the database anymore.
it seems that the option to "Install Database" during the upgrade will totally remove the old database and install a new one without keeping customizations. we cannot deselect the "Install Database" option because the portal will not function properly as the warning message says and as explained by the support team in other threads.
So is there any way to keep all these customizations without recreating them manually in the database one by one.
Note: customizations in the CustomSpace folder are working fine as expected. my concern is about database related customizations.
