QlikView any version




  1. Read the release note and system requirement of the QlikView version that you want to upgrade to.
  2. When upgrading from very early versions (such as 11.20), review: QlikView 11.20 End of Life Upgrade: Known Issues and changes in product behaviour
  3. Draw up a upgrade plan based on what is documented under Upgrading and migrating QlikView
  4. See How to Upgrade or Migrate QlikView 11.20 and later versions
  5. Draw up a rollback plan for upgrade failure based on the same documentation.
  6. Test the upgrade procedure in a Test environment
  7. Validate UI, Tasks, API works in a Test environment
  8. List out the machines that need to be upgraded in a Production environment
