At Teclib´ we are happy to announce that we are expecting the release of GLPI 10 in the following weeks. We have received many questions related to migration from older versions of GLPI/compatibility of plugins and decided to publish a dedicated video. Watch it on Youtube or read the transcription below.
- From which GLPI version I can migrate to GLPI 10?
You can migrate to version 10 from any GLPI version (we support migrations from at least 0.80 version), all data, like users, tickets or assets, will be transferred.
- What should I consider before migration? Which data can be lost in migration?
The server must have at least PHP 7.4 and MySQL 5.6 dependencies. If your server doesn’t have these, you must upgrade these requirements.
No data loss is expected, but as usual, make backups (files and database) and/or snapshots.
You will need to execute some optional migrations after GLPI main update with the help of the console.
If you have custom developments or core changes, please note they will be erased when copying the files. Consider porting them before the migration.
- Which plugins will be compatible with GLPI 10?
All plugins listed in GLPI Network Subscriptions (both Community and Exclusive ones) will be compatible with GLPI 10.
Check https://plugins.glpi-project.org/#/version/~~10.0.0/plugins for a community based list.
- What advantages has native inventory?
In addition to the small gain of not using a plugin, the feature will use less history data and database storage (for example, software updates take 1 line instead 2).
We worked also on user experience, you have now assets separated by types for a more comfortable setup.
It unlocks some features like partial inventories, which reduces performances footprint.
More asset types are available for inventory (you can send files for racks, appliances, certificates, etc).
In combination with GLPI agent, you also obtain some great features:
- Databases inventory
- Proxy mode for DMZ
- Remote inventory (agentless) for windows and linux.
- Stand-alone SNMP tasks
Our professional support for on-premise (GLPI Network Subscriptions) covers support L.3 for migration from GLPI 9.5 to GLPI 10.
All GLPI Network Cloud paid customers will be upgraded for free.
