We provide DB migrations and update scripts. You need to run the scripts to modify your database. Most Sider Enterprise releases require DB migrations which you can apply using the following commands.
$ docker run 480130971618.dkr.ecr.us-east-1.amazonaws.com/sideci_onprem:NEW_TAG bundle exec rake db:migrate $ docker run 480130971618.dkr.ecr.us-east-1.amazonaws.com/catpost_onprem:NEW_TAG bundle exec rake db:migrate
The release may contain extra update scripts. Read the release note and run the scripts.
After updating the databases, you can start the new version of Sider Enterprise containers.
