v5.8 (IIS)

Upgrading on IIS

The following process can be run when upgrading any v5.x instance to v5.8 on IIS.
Warning: If you are upgrading from Cinchy v5.1 or lower to Cinchy v5.8, you must first run a mandatory process (Upgrade 5.2)** using the Cinchy Utility and deploy version 5.2.
If you are upgrading from Cinchy v5.3 or lower to v5.5+ on an SQL Server Database, you will need to make a change to your connectionString in your SSO and Cinchy appsettings.json. Adding TrustServerCertificate=True will allow you to bypass the certificate chain during validation.
Ex:
"SqlServer" : "Server=MyServer;Database=Cinchy;User ID=cinchy;Password=password;Trusted_Connection=False;Connection Timeout=30;Min Pool Size=10;TrustServerCertificate=True"
Warning: If you are upgrading from Cinchy v5.4 or lower to Cinchy v5.8, you must first run a mandatory process (Upgrade 5.5)** using the Cinchy Utility and deploy version 5.5.
The upgrade of any version to Cinchy v5.8 requires changes to be made to various App Setting files. See section 1.2, step 3, for further details.

Prerequisites

  1. 1.
    Take a backup of your database.
  2. 2.
    Extract the new build for the version you wish to upgrade to.

Upgrade process

  1. 1.
    Merge the following configs with your current instance configs:
    • Cinchy/web.config
    • Cinchy/appsettings.json
    • CinchySSO/appsettings.json
    • CinchySSO/web.config
  2. 2.
    If you are upgrading to 5.8 on an SQL Server Database and didn't do so in any previous updates, you will need to make a change to your connectionString in both your SSO and Cinchy appsettings.json. Adding TrustServerCertificate=True will allow you to bypass the certificate chain during validation.
    Ex:
    "SqlServer" : "Server=MyServer;Database=Cinchy;User ID=cinchy;Password=password;Trusted_Connection=False;Connection Timeout=30;Min Pool Size=10;TrustServerCertificate=True"
  3. 3.
