Title: Upgrading from UI5 to UI7 on Vera Plus
Post by: Zoro on February 18, 2016, 08:11:12 am
All--

  I'm in the process of moving from UI5 on Vera 3 to UI7 on Vera Plus. I plan on following the steps outlined on:

http://support.getvera.com/customer/en/portal/articles/1840699-upgrade-from-ui5-on-veralite-vera-2-or-vera-3

  But step 5 states that prior to the upgrade all plugins should be upgraded to the current version. I have more than 20 plugins and I don't know of any single place to identify the current versions of a plugin (they are scattered throughout the forum). Any thoughts?

  Thanks in advance for any help provided.

Jason --

  Thanks. With more than 20 plugins that will take forever. Often it's difficult to find a reference to the current plugin version.

  Perhaps we need to develop a page that gets updated periodically with the current plugin version.

That would be handy, but I don't think vera wants to own/update that list and I haven't seen anyone else offering...

I plan just to upgrade the plugins individually. I probably have 15.

If you get the unique identifier for each plugin, you can update by just pasting it into this URL and visiting the URL:

http://YourVeraIP:3480/data_request?id=update_plugin&Plugin=XXXX

...where XXXX is 3086 for PLEG Core, 3066 for PLEG Event Generator, 3018 for PLEG Timer Switch... and so on. See the attachment.

You still have to upgrade manually and individually, but it's not a lot of effort.

Hi DeltaNu1142

  Thanks for the information. I though I understood that upgrading through an http command only worked for selected annotated plugins (with a "*"). None of my plugins  fall in that category.  Good thought...  See the following link:

http://support.getvera.com/customer/en/portal/articles/1840699-upgrade-from-ui5-on-veralite-vera-2-or-vera-3

"Be sure that all your UI5 plugins are upgraded to the latest version. This is handled automatically by the UI. However for plugins that are displayed with a ?*? you can run an HTTP command in a new tab of your browser to upgrade them to the latest version.

The command is:
http://IP_address:3480/data_request?id=update_plugin&Plugin=Plugin_ID
 
where :
●       IP_address is the local IP address of your Vera unit, and you?ll see it in the address bar of your browser after you log in from the portal and you?re at the same location with the Vera unit (same network)
●       Plugin_ID is the number of the plugin and can be found by checking it from the APPS > My Apps section of the UI, by clicking on the name of the plugin and looking under the Plugin Control tab from the new pop-up window"
