Dashboard ID Change After Upgrade

Hi!

Does the Dashboard ID change after a version upgrade?
We recently upgraded from 8.0.11 to 9.8.1.3, and later on noticed that some of the Yellowfin dashboard URLs imbedded in our portals no longer worked.

Sample:
http://www.domain.com/RunDashboard.i4?dashUUID=80991382-fa26-4604-834c-a8c0040525df&primaryOrg=1&clientOrg=1

I'm pretty sure the dashboards are still existing as our clients are actively using them.
The upgrade was done by installing a new version then connecting/reusing the old version's configDB. So I was wondering why it would change, can you please confirm?

Thanks,
Jasper

Hi Jasper,

Can I just confirm your upgrade process here, did you install a new version of Yellowfin and then attach it to the old version's configDB or did you update that database first with the upgrade installer and then connect it to a fresh version of Yellowfin?

Bear in mind, that the current schema version and current code versions must match on your info.jsp page:

Any inconsistencies here may cause problems.

Kind regards,

Hi Chris,

Sorry, just confirmed with our system admin. The upgrade was done using the upgrade installer not the fresh install then reused configDB. The upgrade installer filename was yellowfin-9.8.1.3-20230216-update.exe.
With that said, is it possible that the dashboard ID might have changed during the upgrade?

By the way, the schema and code version matches.

Hi Jasper,

Thanks for confirming. That's good to hear.

It's possible that the UUIDs could change, if new formatting changes are applied during the upgrade. There's a tick box or command line question that asks if you want to apply new defaults when performing the upgrade from 8 to 9. If the new defaults are used, it's possible that the UUIDs might change. Please see our Change Management document for more info.

Kind regards,

Chris
