Process

CAST strongly recommends deploying the WAR files alongside any existing deployed dashboards.

In a "side-by-side" deployment, you will need to transfer the details of your environment (stored in the configuration files such as web.xml/context.xml/.properties/other .xml/.json files) from the existing dashboard to the new.

The structure and content of configuration files may change between releases of the dashboard, so you should not perform a merge or overwrite configuration files - instead you must manually update the new configuration files with the details from the existing configuration files.

If you have made configuration changes to tiles via .JSON files and you want to retain those changes in the new version of the dashboards, you can re-use old .JSON files with the new deployment of the dashboards, however please note that doing so will mean that you will not benefit from any improvements or features added to the new release of the dashboard.
