Auto Update option missing under Manage Packages

Hi,

I would like to update my dependencies included in project automatically.

I was not able to find the Auto Update option under the Manage Packages window.

I was able to find the screenshot where there is an auto-update option on the forum in different post.

Where can I find this option? Please help.

Good morning Dinish,

It’s in the bottom-left hand corner of your screenshot (checkbox).

If this is not a screenshot of your Manage Packages window, please post one so we’ll be better able to identify the issue.

Hi @Dinesh_Kumar_Lalchan

You are right that this functionality is not available anymore (I believe since 2018.3). It might still be reintroduced though, it will just require some patience.

Why on Earth would you remove such a feature? Keeping dependencies updated is a massive hassle, especially now with the new UI object libraries features. This is how it should work:

  1. UI library created
  2. 30 Projects created using UI library
  3. Application that’s part of those 30 projects is upgraded, and descriptors change
  4. UI library is updated with new descriptors
  5. All 30 Projects automatically get new version of UI library and continue functioning

But here’s how it actually works:

  1. UI library created
  2. 30 Projects created using UI library
  3. Application that’s part of those 30 projects is upgraded, and descriptors change
  4. UI library is updated with new descriptors
  5. All 30 Projects break and won’t run
  6. Open all 30 Projects manually and update dependencies manually
  7. Republish - including our required Change Management process - all 30 automations

Awful.
