Running the Upgrade Job

When you create a new upgrade job, you will see a job view similar to the following example:

This example illustrates the fields and controls on the Upgrade View. You can find definitions for the fields and controls later on this page.

Upgrade View

In the job area on the left-hand side of the screen, you'll see one of the following icons next to the steps.

Manual Stop

Indicates each step that must be performed manually. The status of manual steps can be set only to Stop or Complete.


Indicates that Change Assistant can automatically run this step. You can set the status to Stop, Run, Restart, or Complete.

If you set the status to Stop, this indicates that you want to stop the upgrade job at that step or that a milestone has been reached. The status can be reset to Run when desired.

When you are ready to run your upgrade job, select Run from the Change Assistant toolbar. Monitor the status of the automated upgrade steps in the Step Details box. After a automated step is completed running in Change Assistant, you can view logs, scripts and update job properties for individual steps.

Note: Change Assistant uses Application Designer and Data Mover in the background to perform many of the tasks. When using Change Assistant, make sure that any current Application Designer and Data Mover sessions running on the same workstation as Change Assistant are closed before running Change Assistant.
