Automatic upgrade

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

Upgrade your version of JHipster:

npm update -g generator-jhipster

And then run the upgrade sub-generator:

jhipster upgrade

You can also use the migrate blueprint for more advanced upgrade features.

npm i -g generator-jhipster-migrate

Manual upgrades

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

npm update -g 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:


Since JHipster 8.0, this command will update your project and all its 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, use:

jhipster entity Foo
