Upgrade Elastic Cloud APM Server standalone to 8.7.0edit

This upgrade guide is for the standalone (legacy) method of running APM Server. Only use this guide if both of the following are true:

  • You’re using Elastic Cloud.
  • You’re using the APM Server binary, i.e. you haven’t switched to the Elastic APM integration.

Follow these steps to upgrade:

  1. Review the APM release notes, breaking changes, and Observability What’s new content.
  2. Upgrade Elastic Cloud to 8.7.0, See Upgrade versions for instructions.
  3. (Optional) Upgrade to the APM integration. Got time for one more upgrade? See Switch to the Elastic APM integration.
