Status: Maintenance

Changes

Docker

An empty value is now added by default to the Docker Compose variable MAYAN_WORKER_CUSTOM_QUEUE_LIST to silence a warning about this variable not being set.

Documents

An issue that prevented the document file and document version print form to work correctly was fixed.

Other

  • Fix tagged document list view permission filtering. The permission layout remains the same. Only the method in which the permissions is checked was updated.

  • Fix metadata add action actor assignment. This assignment is not currently used by either the view or the API which assign the actor directly themselves.

Removals

  • None

Upgrading from Mayan EDMS 3.5.x

Important

Supervisord must be upgraded to version 4.2.2. See troubleshooting section: After upgrade to version 4.1

  1. Stop supervisord:

    sudo systemctl stop supervisor
    
  2. Make a backup of your supervisord file:

    sudo cp /etc/supervisor/conf.d/mayan-edms.conf /etc/supervisor/conf.d/mayan-edms.conf.bck
    
  3. Make a backup of your database:

    Use the respective backup command for the database:

  4. Upgrade to the latest pip version:

    sudo --user=mayan /opt/mayan-edms/bin/pip install --upgrade pip
    
  5. Remove deprecated requirements:

    sudo --user=mayan curl https://gitlab.com/mayan-edms/mayan-edms/raw/master/removals.txt --output /tmp/removals.txt \
    && sudo --user=mayan /opt/mayan-edms/bin/pip uninstall --requirement /tmp/removals.txt --yes
    
  6. Update the Mayan EDMS Python package:

    sudo --user=mayan /opt/mayan-edms/bin/pip install mayan-edms==4.4.2
    

    the requirements will also be updated automatically.

  7. Update the Redis configuration to serve at least 3 databases:

    Replace:

    databases ...
    

    with:

    databases 3
    
  8. Restart Redis for the changes to take effect:

    sudo systemctl restart redis
    
  9. Edit the config file at /opt/mayan-edms/media/config.yml:

    Replace:

    LOCK_MANAGER_BACKEND: ...
    LOCK_MANAGER_BACKEND_ARGUMENTS: ...
    

    with:

    LOCK_MANAGER_BACKEND: mayan.apps.lock_manager.backends.redis_lock.RedisLock
    LOCK_MANAGER_BACKEND_ARGUMENTS: {'redis_url':'redis://:mayanredispassword@<IP address of Redis server>:6379/2'}
    
  10. Update the supervisord configuration file. Replace the environment variables values shown here with your respective settings. This step will refresh the supervisord configuration file with the new queues and the latest recommended layout:

    sudo --user=mayan MAYAN_MEDIA_ROOT=/opt/mayan-edms/media/ \
    /opt/mayan-edms/bin/mayan-edms.py platformtemplate supervisord | sudo sh -c "cat > /etc/supervisor/conf.d/mayan-edms.conf"
    
  11. Edit the supervisord configuration file and update any setting specific to your installation:

    sudo vi /etc/supervisor/conf.d/mayan-edms.conf
    
  12. Migrate existing database schema and static media files with:

    sudo --user=mayan MAYAN_MEDIA_ROOT=/opt/mayan-edms/media/ \
    /opt/mayan-edms/bin/mayan-edms.py performupgrade
    
  13. Start supervisord:

    sudo systemctl start supervisor
    
  14. Clear the browser cache to avoid loading old web assets.

The upgrade procedure is now complete.
