Unattended Upgrades

Simplify your next upgrade

Have you ever had to deploy an Umbraco patch for a client?

The deployment is complete but when you (and any other visitor) goes to the website you're welcomed by the login screen! 😱

This was a common occurrence with older versions of Umbraco but since v8 it's possible to enable unattended upgrades.

Assuming you're running 10+, simply add the following to your appsettings.json file.

  "Umbraco": {
    "CMS": {
      "Unattended": {
        "PackageMigrationsUnattended": true,
        "UpgradeUnattended": true

Check the official documentation here to learn more.

Let it do its thing

Once you've configured appsettings.json (or web.config on v8) you can relax knowing your next deployment will automatically apply any pending Umbraco upgrades!
