Push your new version to production

Please be sure of your agent type and version and pick the right documentation accordingly.

This is the documentation of the forest-express-sequelize and forest-express-mongoose Node.js agents that will soon reach end-of-support.

forest-express-sequelize v9 and forest-express-mongoose v9 are replaced by @forestadmin/agent v1.

Please check your agent type and version and read on or switch to the right documentation.

Push your new version to production

Forest Admin is using the .forestadmin-schema.json file that is present beside your agent to reflect your model definition as well as the agent version.

When upgrading your agent version, it will only be taken into account if the .forestadmin-schema.json with the latest version has been pushed.

At Forest Admin, we advise you to start your migration in your development environment:

  1. Upgrade your agent in development following the upgrade notes

  2. Start the agent locally

  3. You should notice that your .forestadmin-schema.json has been updated

  4. Commit your source code, dependency manager file as well as the .forestadmin-schema.json file

  5. Push your commit to Production/Staging/Test

  6. Pull code in your server; install, build and restart

If you only have one single remote environment and not bothered by the possibility that it can remain down for a period of time you can upgrade your agent version directly on it.

  1. Upgrade the agent following the migration notes

  2. Set your NODE_ENV or FOREST_ENVIRONMENT to dev

  3. Restart with this new configuration, it should update the content of .forestadmin-schema.json

  4. Once you have confirmed that the file has been updated and sent to Forest Admin servers, you can restore your environment variables and restart the server
