Apache Solr: Upgrading Your Upgrade Experience
Despite widespread enterprise adoption, Solr lacks automated upgrade tooling. It has long been a challenge for users to understand the implications of a Solr upgrade. Users must manually review the Solr release notes to identify configuration changes either to fix backwards incompatibilities or to utilize latest features in the new version. Additionally, users must identify a way to migrate existing index data to the new version (either via an index upgrade or re-indexing the raw data). Clearly, the Solr upgrade process can be cumbersome and error-prone.

In this talk, we will provide an overview of the typical challenges faced by users during a Solr upgrade. We will discuss a strategy that uses a set of config migration tools, as well as the backup and disaster recovery capability to help users navigate the Solr upgrade process reliably and with peace of mind. Finally, we will share common tips and tricks to remember while planning a Solr upgrade.
