IMPORTANT: Older license keys are not compatible with Composer 6.9. If you are upgrading from any older Composer or Zoomdata release, a new license must be requested. See Request and Apply a New License Key.
Support for Zoomdata 4.9 ended on September 25, 2021, and Composer 5.9 entered the Passive Support phase. Our Passive Support release receives only critical patches and security updates until its end-of-life date. We describe critical patches in the Passive Support Release Notes page at the discretion of Product Management. Security updates are not applicable to the third-party dependencies. If you are using Composer 4.9, you should contact Sales and upgrade to the most current LTS release. We no longer provide documentation for any Composer or Zoomdata products prior to version 5.9. Contact Customer Support if you need content for an unsupported release.
For more information about the supported Composer and Logi Zoomdata releases, see Composer Release Vehicles.
Upgrade and Migration Considerations
In general, you can upgrade directly to the latest version of Composer from a prior version.
If you are upgrading to a newer version of Composer and you also want to change your encryption mode, perform the upgrade first and then complete the steps described in Change the Encryption Mode.
Manually upgrading Composer no longer provides the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) needed for Composer to start. Make sure you have Java 11.0.5 or later installed before you manually install or manually upgrade to Composer 5.8 or later. If you do not, Composer will not start.
