We are planning for pega upgrade from our current version is pega 7.2.2 to 8.8.2 .
We have some queries regarding backup process before proceeding with upgrade.We are planning to perform in-place upgrade
Below is the backup plan prior to the execution of the scripts
1. Rule schema full backup would be taken
2. Application Data schema size is almost 13 TB. Due to which we can't take a full backup of data schema.
So,We are planning to take the backup of all the tables in data schema that are getting altered during the upgrade script execution .
Can we get the list of tables that are being altered during the upgrade process ?
Hi @FaijasNK: I don't see any such documentation available from PEGA to confirm on the list of tables impacted because of Upgrade. The possible way I would see is to compare the metadata before and after upgrade and to see the DB audits or CDC to understand which tables are affected.
It is always better to take the full database backup instead of selective tables.
