Supported Upgrade Paths for webMethods Products

Hi All,

I wanted to share this information regarding the supported upgrade path for webMethods products. Hope it would be useful for others who is not aware of this.

Note: If a product had service packs within a release, you can only upgrade the product from the latest service pack.

Thanks Mahesh for sharing.

Also share what are the major issues on latest releases and deprecated features if you have gathered any.


Hi Mahesh,

Can you please be provide more elaborate description for sbs = side by side upgrade and oi = overinstall.

Also, I find that the diagram is missing the upgrade for wM 7.X to 9.6 and 8.x to 9.6.

Thanks in advance.

Can you share your current version? and the version you want to upgrade?

hi Dev, there is no direct path from 7.1 or 8.0/8.1 to 9.6 - that’s why I didn’t include it in the matrix. You can only get to 9.6 from 7.1 or 8.0/8.1 via 8.2, 9.0, or 9.5, as shown in the matrix.

Rp, you can find information about features in the release notes, and information about deprecated items in the readmes.
