Upgrading Apigee hybrid

Upgrading to a new version

Follow these steps to upgrade Apigee hybrid to a new version. For example, if you are currently running version 1.0.0, and you want to upgrade to version 1.1.0, follow these steps:

Download and install a new version of apigeectl.

apigeectl is the command-line interface (CLI) for installing and managing Apigee hybrid in a Kubernetes cluster.

Download the version of apigeectl that you want to upgrade to:

  1. Download the release package for your operating system:

    Mac 64 bit:

    curl -LO \

    Linux 64 bit

    curl -LO \

    Mac 32 bit:

    curl -LO \

    Linux 32 bit

    curl -LO \
  2. Identify the base installation directory that was created when Apigee hybrid was originally installed. The base directory is directory in which the $APIGEEGTL_HOME directory resides. In the following example, the base directory is /Users/myhome/hybrid:

  3. Extract the downloaded gzip file contents into the Apigee hybrid base directory:

    tar xvzf filename.tar.gz -C path-to-base-directory
  4. cd to the base directory.
  5. The tar contents are, by default, expanded into a directory with the version and platform in its name. For example: ./apigeectl_1.0.1-f7b96a8_linux_64.

  6. Rename the current apigeectl directory. For example, if the current version is 1.0.0 rename the apigeectl directory to apigeectl_1.0.0.
  7. Rename the newly extracted installation directory to apigeectl. This is now where the environment $APIGEECTL_HOME points to.
  8. Clean up completed jobs:
    kubectl delete job -n namespace $(kubectl get job -n namespace -o=jsonpath='{.items[?(@.status.succeeded==1)].metadata.name}')
  9. cd to the ./hybrid-files directory:
  10. Initialize apigeectl for the new version:
    $APIGEECTL_HOME/apigeectl init -f my-overrides.yaml
  11. Run apigeectl apply:
    $APIGEECTL_HOME/apigeectl apply -f my-overrides.yaml

Rolling back an upgrade

Follow these steps to roll back a previous upgrade:

  1. Clean up completed jobs:
    kubectl delete job -n namespace $(kubectl get job -n namespace -o=jsonpath='{.items[?(@.status.succeeded==1)].metadata.name}')
  2. In the root directory of the installation you want to roll back to, run apigeectl init and then run apigeectl apply:
      $APIGEECTL_HOME/apigeectl init -f my-overrides.yaml
      $APIGEECTL_HOME/apigeectl apply -f my-overrides.yaml
