Help OS11 upgrade: is there a way to analyse the impact of the upgrade?

  

We have Outsystems installed on premise and are planning on upgrading to OS 11 by mid-December.

We have quite a lot applications on there and I was wondering if Outsystems has a tool that could perform an impact analysis in order to see what might not be working after the upgrade.


Hi Gael,

Are you searching for an automatic regression/functional test component, or more than that?

Hi Marco,

Thanks for the swift reply.

What I need is more of functional test component to evaluate the impact (the bads)  the upgrade to OS 11 will have on our current apps in production.


Hi Gael,

Two options: one is to build your automated testing tool, other is to use an existing one.

1) Maybe you can take a look on this article to read more on the first option:

https://success.outsystems.com/Evaluation/Lifecycle_Management/9_How_does_OutSystems_support_testing_and_quality_assurance/Unit_and_regression_testing_with_OutSystems

2) And see this component or other tools for the second option:

Regards,

I have the same question, but what I want to know is if there is any incompatibility because of the platform itself, I mean, deprecated functions, breaking changes or anything that can make any application to be not compatible with version 11 before upgrading.

Hi,


I would start to have a look at OS 11 Breaking Changes (here). It will give you a good understanding on what could break.


If you want to assess the real impact of upgrading the platform, you can clone one of your environments (instructions) and execute the upgrade there.
