Known issues

Upgrading from previous release

Upgrade is supported by Ansible (2.11.x). Requires Yoda external user service to be on version 1.8.x or higher. Requires Yoda public server to be on version 1.8.x or higher.

  1. Backup/copy custom configurations made to Yoda version 1.8. To view what files were changed from the defaults, run git diff.

  2. After making sure the configurations are stored safely in another folder, reset the Yoda folder using git stash or when you want to delete all changes made: git reset --hard.

  3. Checkout branch release-1.9 of the Yoda Git repository.
    git checkout release-1.9
  4. Set the Yoda version to release-1.9 in the configuration.
    yoda_version: release-1.9
  5. Install all Ansible collections needed to deploy Yoda:
    ansible-galaxy collection install -r requirements.yml
  6. Run the Ansible playbook in check mode.
    ansible-playbook -i <path-to-your-environment> playbook.yml --check
    ### EXAMPLE ###
    ansible-playbook -i /environments/development/allinone playbook.yml --check
  7. If the playbook has finished successfully in check mode, run the Ansible playbook normally.
    ansible-playbook -i <path-to-your-environment> playbook.yml
    ### EXAMPLE ###
    ansible-playbook -i /environments/development/allinone playbook.yml
  8. Update all metadata JSON in the vault to latest metadata JSON version (default-1 to default-2).
    irule -r irods_rule_engine_plugin-irods_rule_language-instance -F /etc/irods/yoda-ruleset/tools/check-metadata-for-schema-updates.r
  9. Update publication endpoints if there are published packages (DataCite, landingpages and OAI-PMH):
    irule -r irods_rule_engine_plugin-irods_rule_language-instance -F /etc/irods/yoda-ruleset/tools/update-publications.r
