Upgrade Guide: v3.x to v4.0



Please don't upgrade multiple versions at once (eg. from v2 to v4). Please upgrade one step at a time.

To get started with the upgrade process, follow the below steps:

1. In your composer.json file, update the doublethreedigital/runway version constraint:

"doublethreedigital/runway": "^5.0"

2. Then run:

composer update doublethreedigital/runway --with-dependencies

3. You may also want to clear your route & view caches:

php artisan route:clear
php artisan view:clear

4. Update complete!

Please test locally before deploying to production!


High: Permission keys have changed

Permission keys have changed. If you have a user role with custom permissions set, you will need to make some changes:

If you're using the files user repository, the permission keys in the resources/users/roles.yaml file should have been automatically with the new permission names.

If you're using any other user repository, you will need to update the permission keys manually. Examples of the changes are shown below:

  • View Products -> view product
  • Edit Products -> edit product
  • Create new Product -> create product
  • Delete Product -> delete product
