CAUTION: You must run the Active Roles Setup in Administrator Mode. Failing to do so will result in Active Roles not starting up at all.
You can upgrade any 7.x version of Active Roles to Active Roles 7.5.3.
For instructions on how to upgrade from an earlier version of Active Roles, see the Active Roles Quick Start Guide.
NOTE: Consider the following before upgrading to a new version of Active Roles:
Components of an earlier Active Roles version may not work with the components of the new version you are upgrading to.
Custom solutions (scripts or other modifications) that rely on Active Roles features may fail to work after an upgrade due to compatibility issues. Therefore, before starting the upgrade, test your existing solutions with the new version of Active Roles in a lab environment to verify that your custom solutions will continue to work.
TIP: When upgrading to a new Active Roles version, One Identity recommends to upgrade the Active Roles Administration Service first, and the client components (Active Roles Console and Active Roles Web Interface) afterwards.
For instructions on how to upgrade from an earlier version of Active Roles or how to install and initially configure Active Roles, see the Active Roles Quick Start Guide.
For special considerations regarding the installation of Active Roles 7.5.3, see the following information.
Changes related to Azure tenants
NOTE: If your organization has any Azure tenants that are managed with Active Roles, you need to reauthenticate and reconsent them after installing Active Roles 7.5.3. Otherwise, Active Roles will not receive the required permissions for managing existing Azure tenants, and tenant administration in Active Roles 7.5.3 will not work correctly. For more information, see Reconfiguring Azure tenants during upgrade configuration in the Active Roles Quick Start Guide.
Changes related to Active Roles
NOTE: Active Roles 7.5 introduced support for Modern Authentication in Azure BackSync workflows of the Active Roles . After upgrading to Active Roles 7.5 or 7.5.3 from an earlier version, if you previously had an Azure BackSync workflow configured, you will be prompted to reconfigure it in the Active Roles Console.
CAUTION: If you previously had an Azure BackSync workflow configured in Active Roles , and you use more than one Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) service in your deployment, you must specify the Azure AD for which you want to configure Azure BackSync. Failure to do so may either result in directory objects not synchronized at all, or synchronized to unintended locations.
For more information on how to specify the Azure AD used for back-synchronization, see Configuring automatic Azure BackSync in the Active Roles Administration Guide.
