Upgrade Composer with Custom Applications
Because Composer is installed software, your organization must decide whether and when to install any particular upgrade. The following considerations will help you understand what is involved in upgrading to any version of Composer.
Did You White Label Composer with a Custom CSS?
The CSS in Composer evolves with the client application. Differences in the CSS should be considered before you upgrade. You should examine all existing CSS and modify it accordingly.
Does Your Application Use REST APIs?
Composer’s REST API offerings change regularly. Be sure you review the Release Notes regularly for changes in API endpoints.
Does Your Application Use an iFrame-Embedded Dashboard?
Any dashboard already embedded in a custom application using an iFrame will continue to work with newer versions of Composer. iFrame-embedded dashboards have additional capabilities that are invoked using parameters included with the embedding code.
