Private cloud services are upgraded by selecting a new version of the service template. If your service has a status of Pending servicing, this selection has already been done for you by an administrator or via template authoring outside of App Controller. Canceling an upgrade for a service with the Pending servicing status will clear the upgrade template selection.
How to Upgrade a Deployed Service in a Private Cloud
To upgrade a deployed service
On the Services page, select the service deployment then select Upgrade from the taskbar. If you are in the diagram view of the service, right-click the service node and select the Upgrade task.
The Upgrade task displays the service diagram. Select the version of the template you want to upgrade to. If you only want to change global settings, select the same version of the template. If you want to downgrade, select an older version of the template.
To change global settings for the service or specify new global settings, open the service property page by clicking the hyperlink in the service node of the diagram.
After you have provided information for all required fields, click Upgrade to perform the upgrade.
