How to update from Magnolia 4.5.8

Update the data item node type

(warning) Do this before installing Magnolia. This is an additional task when updating to Magnolia 4.5.9 and to Data module 1.7.5. It fixes an issue where a JCRAdminTree does not show the correct activation status for subnodes. The activation status is incorrect because metadata nodes are missing.

You can perform the update in two ways:

A) Manual update

Edit the node types in /<CATALINA_HOME>/webapps/<contextPath>/repositories/magnolia/repository/nodetypes/custom_nodetypes.xml.

Change this:

<nodeType hasOrderableChildNodes="true" isAbstract="false" isMixin="false" isQueryable="true" name="dataItemNode" primaryItemName="">

To this

<nodeType hasOrderableChildNodes="true" isAbstract="false" isMixin="false" isQueryable="true" name="dataItemNode" primaryItemName="">
   <childNodeDefinition autoCreated="true" defaultPrimaryType="mgnl:metaData" mandatory="true" name="MetaData" onParentVersion="COPY" protected="false" sameNameSiblings="false">

B) Scripted update

Run the Python script. The script is in the Data module bundle in Nexus.

To run the script:

jsmith:~ $ ./ /path/to/your/webapp

How to migrate from Magnolia 4.4.7

Migration is your starting point. You should understand that migration is not a simple update but an effort that needs to be planned ahead.

How to migrate from versions prior to Magnolia 4.4.6

Updating from a version prior to 4.4.6 directly to 4.5.9 does not work. You need to first update to 4.4.6, then follow the procedure described in Migration. Finally, follow How to update from Magnolia 4.5.8 above.

Known issues

Form module

Cross-site-scripting (XSS) vulnerability

We recommend that you update to Form module 1.4.7 which fixes a cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability.

Confirmation email content type

Starting with Form 1.4.5, confirmation email messages that are sent to users when they submit a form are composed using a editCode control. The messages were previously composed with an edit control. This changes the way the confirmation message HTML body is stored in the repository and how it is retrieved. You need to update your custom forms and existing message bodies accordingly. See an example in UpdatePurConfirmationEmailTypeTask. If you don't update the control type and message nodes you will not be able to read or update existing messages and you run the risk of losing the messages altogether when a user saves the dialog.  MGNLFORM-159 - Getting issue details...
