Chapter 1. Red Hat Ansible Automation Platform 2.2 upgrades

Upgrade to Red Hat Ansible Automation Platform 2.2 by setting up your inventory and running the installation script. Ansible then upgrades your deployment to 2.2. If you plan to upgrade from Ansible Automation Platform 2.0 or earlier, you must migrate Ansible content for compatibility with 2.2.

1.1. Ansible Automation Platform upgrades

Upgrading to version 2.2 from Ansible Automation Platform 2.1 or later involves downloading the installation package and then performing the following steps:

  • Set up your inventory to match your installation environment.
  • Run the 2.2 installation program over your current Ansible Automation Platform installation.

1.2. Ansible Automation Platform legacy upgrades

Upgrading to version 2.2 from Ansible Automation Platform 2.0 or earlier requires you to migrate Ansible content for compatibility.

The following steps provide an overview of the legacy upgrade process:

  • Duplicate your custom virtual environments into automation execution environments using the awx-manage command.
  • Migrate data from isolated legacy nodes to execution nodes by performing a side-by-side upgrade so nodes are compatible with the latest automation mesh features.
  • Import or generate a new automation hub API token.
  • Reconfigure your Ansible content to include Fully Qualified Collection Names (FQCN) for compatibility with ansible-core 2.13.
