Upgrade service wthin Applicaton


  • HI, 

    If i have a application made up of 10 services, what is the best way to upgrade a single service?

    The only way i've managed to do it, is by redploying the entire application that contains the change to the single service, but this seems like a bad way to do this as it takes ages to upload the application package?

    Any help would be great.

  • Hi, 

    If i have a load of services running on a Service Fabric Cluster is there a way to show which applications have a more recent version than the current active application. I want to know this so that i can prestage the deployment of the new versions of the applications, this could be 1 app or could be 10 and then i want to trigger a rolling upgrade for all new apps?

    I hope this makes sense?

  • If you want to update a service, the correct way to do so is to update the application as a whole. Otherwise, if you want to update a single service at a time you should put each service into it's own application.

  • Hi,

    There is no way AFAIK to upload only a diff between versions... You have to upload whole package (makes sense, if You consider, that You can always remove older images (uploaded packages) and still be able to create a new app instance from what you have)

    But if You change the version of only one service in the manifest, only the one service will be redeployed during application upgrade.

  • I'm not sure what You're trying to achieve, but you can get all the information using powershell.

    After connecting to service fabric you can get the applications (Get-ServiceFabricApplication return all apps and its application types (name and version).
