I am wondering what is an ideal method to upload major change in the project to the gateway. Could you please check my steps and correct my understanding:
1 Backup old project - this includes whole gateway backup, specific project back up from the gateway (if needed), databases backups
2 Disable the old project on the gateway and then rename it with some timestamp in the name. This might be convenient if we need to restore it again.
3 Upload new project to the gateway - here comes my problem how can i upload the project to the gateway in disabled state?. Project needs to be disabled because otherwise it will error as it might not have all the tags or database connections.
4 Using designer of the imported project, upload new tags to the gateway. Question - is there any way to import the tags directly to the gateway without using the designer?
5 Add any new database connections if needed
6 Restore any backup of existing databases if there were changes
7 Enable the project on the gateway so it starts working
8 Test the project
Any thoughts on the steps or questions inside?
