Upgrade Session Manager to 8.3.1

Use these upgrade instructions if you are:

  • Using a version of Session Manager older than 8.3.1

  • Upgrading to a version of Session Manager that is 8.3.1 or higher

These instructions are intended for GIS administrators who currently are in production with a previous version of Session Manager and who want to upgrade to the most recent version of the ArcFM Solution. This document does not apply if you are not currently using Session Manager and will be implementing it with the latest release of ArcFM (i.e., you are new to ArcFM and are starting with the current release). If this is the case, refer to Set Up Session Manager.

If you are upgrading your Process Framework, you may also need to use the Process Framework Database Upgrade tool.

Upgrade to 8.3.1

With release 8.3.1, the tools included with ArcFM’s Session Manager were retrofitted to use the new Task/Subtask architecture provided with the Process Framework. Since the tools now depend on new tasks, they will be disabled if the tasks do not exist. All tools in Session Manager are affected by this change.

You will need to create the following tasks using the Process Framework Administration Tool. The Task Name must appear exactly as shown in bold below.
