Automatically Upgrade Alloy Discovery 7 Client Components for Technicians

IMPORTANT: Applies only for upgrades from version 7.2 or later.

If you are upgrading from version 7.2, the last migration step turns on the Automatic Upgrade feature. When your technicians launch the Alloy Discovery Desktop App, they will be prompted to automatically upgrade their client installations. Clicking Apply the Update will start the automatic upgrade. As soon as the upgrade is complete, the previous version will be uninstalled automatically.

If you want to make sure that the Automatic Upgrade is turned on and that the Desktop App installer is available for distribution:

  1. In the Alloy Discovery 8 Settings, go to General > Upgrade and Migration.
  2. Make sure that the Automatic Upgrade is on and that the latest installation package is shown under Shared Installation Package.

INFO: For details, see Administration Guide: Enabling Automatic Upgrade.
