If you're already using a custom set of Linchpin apps in your Confluence and would like to switch to the Linchpin Intranet Suite instead, here's what you need to do:
Migrate to the Linchpin Intranet Suite in four steps
Backup your data
To back up your data, please first make a copy of the database. This is usually done by your Confluence system administrator.
We recommend that you first perform the migration on a test instance regardless of whether you have performed a backup or not.
Install the Linchpin Intranet Suite
Now install the latest version of Linchpin Intranet Suite either by uploading the installation file or installing it via the Atlassian Marketplace.
See what's new in the latest release: https://seibert.biz/linchpinlatestrelease.
Do not uninstall or update any Linchpin app from your previously installed custom set of Linchpin apps
Please do not uninstall or update any Linchpin app from your previously installed custom set of Linchpin apps before upgrading to the Linchpin Intranet Suite, as this might cause database incompatibilities and issues with future version updates of the Linchpin Intranet Suite.
If you've been updating your custom set of Linchpin apps on a regular basis, installing the Linchpin Intranet Suite might not install the entire set of Linchpin apps bundled in the suite initially. This happens because the Linchpin Intranet Suite installer performs a version check in the background and installs only those Linchpin apps from the suite bundle that have a version newer than the one already available in your system. After this initial installation of the Linchpin Intranet Suite please do not uninstall or update any custom Linchpin apps remaining on your system, and instead wait for the next release of the Linchpin Intranet Suite. When you install the next Linchpin Intranet Suite release, the remaining custom Linchpin apps will be updated and switched to the version of the suite, if the suite bundle provides a newer version.
Due to technical reasons the Linchpin app Linchpin Personalized Content is not yet included in the Linchpin Intranet Suite.
Please check that all Linchpin apps are listed and active in the Confluence App Manager. Then perform a quality assurance review on the apps and data as needed.
If you have any problems, please contact your account manager or contact our support team, e.g. via chat on this page.
Optional: Deactivate apps not needed
Depending on the apps that made up your prior custom Linchpin set, additional apps may have been installed with the Linchpin Intranet Suite. The Linchpin Intranet Suite provides you with a fixed set of features. If you do not want to use one of these features, you can deactivate the app in Confluence's Universal Plugin Manager at any time.
