Upgrade RStudio Connect#

Upgrading RStudio Connect requires limited downtime (typically less than 10 minutes).

Upgrade planning#

  • During the upgrade, the RStudio Connect service is restarted.
  • Scheduled document renders are not interrupted.
  • Connections to running applications and APIs are closed.
  • Users can be prompted with a warning ahead of an upgrade using System Messages.

Info

New features, deprecations, and breaking changes are announced on the RStudio Blog for each version release. When performing an upgrade from a much older version of RStudio Connect, it is recommended that you review the detailed Release Notes.

Download and run the script#

To perform an upgrade, download and run the same script used to install RStudio Connect. The script installs a new version of RStudio Connect on top of the earlier one. Existing configuration settings are respected unless otherwise mentioned in the release notes.
