LiveCycleES: description of manual tasks after upgrading from LiveCycle 7

For anybody looking for more information about migration from LiveCycle 7.x to LiveCycle ES, there are some manual steps involved which you should know about so that you can plan your resources and testing around this.

The main manual tasks are:

  1. Upgrade process using Upgrade tool
  2. Delete init-forms
  3. Change each form variable type from ‘lc7form’ to ‘xfaform’
  4. Set render/submit service for each xfaform variable
  5. Remapping User QPAC’s input and output variables (in LiveCycle 7.x, the input can be a variable name, but in LiveCycle ES, it must be an xPath expression), if multiple User QPACs are used in a process, you have to remap the input/output one-by-one.
  6. Activate the new process version

You can find more information on each of the steps above in the LiveCycle Workbench ES documentation below.
