[Archivesspace_Users_Group] updating and plugins question

Hi Robert

It very much depends on the plugin. Things to check

  1.  If the plugin has a gemfile, make sure that is inline with the core gems - ie update the plugin gem constraints if necessary
  2.  If the plugin overrides any core views, make sure that those overrides incorporate any core changes
  3.  If the plugin overrides any core methods, again make sure that those overrides are compatible with any changes in core

Hi all,

Recently upgraded a dev box from 2.5.1 to 3.3.1. First time I've worked on updating an Archivesspace instance. Everything has gone fairly smoothly but getting plugins sorted.

What is the process for migrating plugins successfully? I couldn't find any documentation for initialize-plugin.sh, but I saw references to it. Ran that successfully on a plugin but starting archivesspace with that plugin listed in config.rb still failed.

Thanks for any assistance.
