Confirmed Breaking Upgrade paths:
Here you need to get creative.
Got an answer from the AWX Team:
"Upgrades between AWX versions are not expected to work. However, we have recently added an import/export capability to tower-cli/awx-cli, which allows you to export your job templates and other objects (not including credential secrets) to a JSON file, which you can then re-import to a freshly installed 1.0.6."
They are referring to the awx-cli tool from their separate repo.. also, the awx-manage tool have a dumpdata/loaddata tool...
I'm going to see if I can do a workaround for upgrades.
For the guys that really want to push their luck :)... Something like this will probably work.
You have to install awx-cli in advance, available in the repo:
yum install ansible-tower-cli
As far as I can see.. this is missing when using the awx-cli export/import:
Create a backup of AWX data
awx-cli receive --organization all --team all --credential_type all --credential all --notification_template all --user all --inventory_script all --inventory all --project all --job_template all --workflow all > alldata
Stop all services, re-create the database
systemctl stop awx-celery-worker awx-cbreceiver awx-celery-beat awx-channels-worker awx-daphne awx-web su - postgres -c "dropdb awx" su - postgres -c "createdb -O awx awx"
Migrate AWX data into the new database
sudo -u awx /opt/awx/bin/awx-manage migrate
Re-create the admin user, provision the instance and queues
echo "from django.contrib.auth.models import User; User.objects.create_superuser('admin', 'root@localhost', 'test')" | sudo -u awx /opt/awx/bin/awx-manage shell sudo -u awx /opt/awx/bin/awx-manage provision_instance --hostname=$(hostname) sudo -u awx /opt/awx/bin/awx-manage register_queue --queuename=tower --hostnames=$(hostname)
Restore AWX data from the file (alldata)
awx-cli send alldata
