How to upgrade

Manual upgrades (works for JHipster 4.x applications)

For a manual upgrade, first upgrade your version of JHipster with:

yarn global upgrade generator-jhipster

If you have an existing project, it will still use the JHipster version with which it was generated. To upgrade your project, you must first delete its node_modules folder and then run:

yo jhipster

You can also update your project and all its entities by running

yo jhipster --with-entities

You can also update your entities one-by-one by running again the entity sub-generator, for example if your entity is named Foo

yo jhipster:entity Foo

Automatic upgrade only works for JHipster 3.x applications

For an automatic upgrade, use the JHipster upgrade sub-generator on an existing application:

yo jhipster:upgrade
