CIM 4.3 and later

Migration from 2.1.1 to 2.2.0

There are no upgrade issues when upgrading from version 2.1.1 to 2.2.0.

Migration from 2.1.0 to 2.2.0

Version 2.1.1 of this add-on changed the timestamp extraction behavior. That release corrected the way that the Splunk platform selects the timestamp from among the three timestamps available in Cisco ISE data. This change may cause a time jump in your data at the upgrade point.

Migration from versions older than 2.1.0 to 2.2.0

If you have any version of the Splunk Add-on for Cisco ISE currently installed that is older than version 2.1.0, note that version 2.2.0 will not update or replace your current installation. Because the pre-2.1.0 community-supported versions of this add-on had a different folder structure, this add-on behaves as a new installation, not as an upgrade.

To migrate from any version prior to 2.1.0 to version 2.2.0:

  1. Download and install version 2.2.0 of the add-on from Splunkbase.
  2. Disable your previous version in the Splunk platform.
  3. Enable version 2.2.0 of the add-on.
  4. Create and adjust your local .conf files as needed to match your old configurations.
  5. Verify your configurations work as expected.

'#Delete the older version of the add-on.
