The One Identity Safeguard for Privileged Sessions appliance is built specifically for use only with the One Identity Safeguard for Privileged Sessions software that is already installed and ready for immediate use.
Due to a change in the underlying database, the upgrade process removes all risk scores generated earlier by One Identity Safeguard for Privileged Analytics. Sessions initiated after the upgrade will be scored again.
