Automatic upgrade

WARNING we have many reports that automatic upgrade do not work well, see #5883. This depends on your specific configuration, so if you have trouble with this:

  • You can still do a “manual upgrade” (see below)
  • If you find anything helpful for us, please send us comments on ticket #5883
  • If you have time and want to help, don’t hesitate to contribute on this part!

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

yo jhipster:upgrade

Please note that with our new JHipster CLI release, the new command will be:

jhipster upgrade

Manual upgrades

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:


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

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

jhipster entity Foo
