Upgrading to IQ Bot Version 11.3.5.x

Upgrading system to IQ Bot Version 11.3.5.x

  • IQ Bot Version 11.3.5.4 is compatible only with Control Room Version 11.3.4.4
  • IQ Bot Version 11.3.5.3 is compatible only with Control Room Version 11.3.4.4.
  • To import learning instance backups on an IQ Bot Version 11.3.5.2 environment, the backup (.iqba) file must be exported from an IQ Bot Version 11.3.5.2 environment only. Therefore, you must also upgrade your source IQ Bot environment to Version 11.3.5.2. This requirement is due to changes made in database schemas and version information in the backup (.iqba) files.

Upgrading to IQ Bot Version 11.3.4

Install IQ Bot Version 11.3.4 using installation checklist provided in the installer zip file.

Upgrading to IQ Bot Version 11.3.3

  • For IQ Bot Version 11.3.3, users must upgrade to RabbitMQ version 3.7.17.
  • When upgrading to IQ Bot Version 11.3.3, all group information gets stored in a new table ContentClassification, and all data gets automatically upgraded/transferred to this table during the installation process.
  • If your machine version is older than SQL Server Native Client 2012, a dialog box appears, giving you the option to upgrade. Open services.msc and stop SQL Server (MSSQLSERVER). Then complete the installation process.
  • During the upgrade, the installer detects if you have existing learning instances from a prior version of IQ Bot. Select that prior version of IQ Bot from a drop-down list to keep the classifier version for the existing learning instances.
  • For any new learning instances created after installation, the classifier version of IQ Bot Version 5.3.1/Version 6.5 is used.
  • If upgrading from IQ Bot Version 5.3.1.x and you have a learning instance that relies on 5.3.1.x group check box or linked table functionality, clear that learning instance's validation queue before upgrading to IQ Bot Version 6.5 to avoid field name conflicts.
    • IQ Bot Version 5.3.1.x uses "_", a non-unique delimiter (Gender_ID_Female and Patient_Table_Services).
    • IQ Bot Version 6.5 uses unique delimiters "->" for group check box (for example, "Gender_ID->Female") and ":" for linked tables (for example, "Patient_Table:Services"), which can make it easier to process in RPA.
  • For security protection, the SQL server database is encrypted starting from IQ Bot Version 6.5. The added protection can increase the database size by up to 4x. This is due to the encryption obfuscation.
  • When upgrading IQ Bot Version 5.3.x to Version 6.5 and above, the installer encrypts data related to files in the database.
  • Version 11.3.1.1Upgrading to IQ Bot Version 11.3.3.1

    Install IQ Bot Version 11.3.3.1 using the installation checklist provided in the installer zip file.

  • Upgrading to IQ Bot Version 11.3.3.x
    When upgrading IQ Bot, the group numbers under learning instances can change due to data migration to Version 11.3.3.x. To see the mapping between the old groups in Version 6.0.x and new groups in Version 11.3.3.x, user would need to go through the installation-helper.log file, in C:\Users\Public\Documents\Automation Anywhere IQBot Platform\Logs folder.
    Note: The upgrade changes the group number only, and not the data.
