We faced this question on multiple occasions from our customers, so we thought of putting this article with the information to upgrade/downgrade BizTalk360.

  1. Is it possible to install another higher release without going to the latest version?
    For example - If we are running BizTalk360 version 7.X.XXX and the latest version is 8.X.XXX. Instead of upgrading to the latest version 

    8.X.XXX

    , can we upgrade to 7.Y.YYY?
  2. Is it possible to downgrade the product version?
    For example - If we are running BizTalk360 version 8.X.XXX, can we downgrade to the previous version 7.V.VVV?


Our Suggestions

  1. An upgrade can be done with any higher release and need not be with the latest version. However, we highly recommended to take advantage and install the latest version as it will include bug fixes, enhancements and performance improvements.
  2. You CANNOT downgrade from the installed version to a lower version. We do not recommend to downgrade (though it is possible only by uninstalling the current BizTalk360 version and installing a lower version MSI) as it may cause huge data loss.
