When a new release of Smile CDR is released, the following page outlines the steps required in order to upgrade.
Within the Smile CDR installation directory, there is a directory called
lib/ that contains all of the binary code for Smile CDR. It is generally possible to simply replace the contents of this directory with the new contents from a release.
The following example shows an in-place upgrade of Smile CDR:
cd smilecdr bin/smilecdr stop
# The following command assumes you are currently in the root of your smilecdr # installation, and will extract only the lib directory tar --strip-components=1 -xvf /path/to/smilecdr-2021.05.PRE.tar.gz smilecdr/lib
See the smileutil: Migrate Database page for details on how to run the database migrator tool.
When upgrading CDR from versions 2019.05 and earlier, if subscriptions are enabled, then you will need to add a new Subscription Matching Module of the same FHIR version as your FHIR Storage module and link the Subscription Matching module to that FHIR Storage module as a dependency.
