Upgrade Tyk Gateway

  1. Backup your gateway config file (tyk.conf or the name you chose for it), .env and values.yaml. Even if you’re using the environment variables from the values.yaml to define your configuration, there still might be a config file used and loaded with field values you relay on.

  3. Update the image version in your values.yaml
    For example, in this values.yaml change the version of the tag tag: v5.3 to the version you want.
  4. Run Helm upgrade with your relevant values.yaml file/s.
