Upgrade question

I’m running n8n in production with Docker and all is good. My question is: if I upgrade my instance, what will happen with the executions, specially those that are with “waiting” status? I need to know this before upgrading, because I have many users “waiting” in the workflows. Thank you!

Hey, @vinicius

Welcome to n8n community :heart:

Obviously, everything will start after a container restart. But automation will stop for sure.

I suggest you put some maintenance flags before proceeding with the update.

FYI, As I saw so far. An update will take less than/approx 1 minute.

Welcome @vinicius !

As mentioned by @mcnaveen will it not be a problem. Depending on your setup could it also make sense to pull the docker-container first before you upgrade that this will not slow down the start of the new instance.
