Upgrading the Threat Stack Agent

Follow

 

Agent Upgrade Methods

You can upgrade using your distributions' normal package upgrade mechanisms. Reminder, the `install` command finds the newest file, and when the agent is already installed, it triggers an update.

Note

If you use Agent 1.6.8 or later, then use these instructions to upgrade the Agent. If you use Agent 1.6.7 or earlier, then you must uninstall the Agent and reinstall a supported Agent. For a list of supported Agent versions, see System Requirements.

Ubuntu
sudo apt-get install threatstack-agent

Warning

Do not use theapt-get dist-upgradecommand to upgrade your Threat Stack Agent. Thedist-upgradecommand deletes, or deletes and replaces, out of date packages, which may break functionality in tools with dependencies on those packages.

Red Hat
sudo yum install threatstack-agent

Alternatively, you can leverage our Chef, Puppet, Salt, or Ansible code available on Github to help install or upgrade your agent.

Note

At this time you cannot upgrade existing agents inside of the Threat Stack application.

If you need help installing the Threat Stack Agent, see these instructions.

When an upgrade is available, you can find the list of agent versions that you have deployed on the Servers page by clicking the Servers with Out-of-date Agent button.
