Upgrading Superset

Docker Compose

First make sure to wind down the running containers in Docker Compose:

docker-compose down

Then, update the folder that mirrors the superset repo through git:

cd superset/
git pull origin master

Then, restart the containers and any changed Docker images will be automatically pulled down:

docker-compose up

Updating Superset Manually

To upgrade superset in a native installation, run the following commands:

pip install apache-superset --upgrade
superset db upgrade
superset init

While upgrading superset should not delete your charts and dashboards, we recommend following best practices and to backup your metadata database before upgrading. Before upgrading production, we recommend upgrading in a staging environment and upgrading production finally during off-peak usage.
