Application Integration - Upgrade

You can upgrade the PostgreSQL database of Process Server from version 9.5.2 or 12.4 to version 12.6. Version 12.6 offers security fixes.

You can choose to upgrade at your own convenience by manually running scripts provided by Informatica. The scripts take a backup of the existing database version so that you can restore to the old database version in case of any upgrade issue.
