0 Likes

Summary
Unfortunately it is not possible to use the same database from one version of SSC with another version due to the different structure and architecture of the database.

Products
Fortify Software Security Center

Environment
SSC 21.1 and 22.1

Situation
Customer wants to know if it is possible to connect two different versions of SSC to the same instance of the DB.

Resolution
Unfortunately it is not possible to use the same database from one version of SSC with another version due to the different structure and architecture of the database.
What you could use is the same database server by creating a new instance of the database for the other version of SSC.

It's not possible as there is a difference in the database structure in different versions. In fact, when an SSC version update process is carried out, a migration script must be executed that makes the necessary changes so that this structure adjusts to the new version to which it will be connected.

The only way would be to install the same version of SSC and join it to the same database, however it is not recommended as there may be performance issues on the database server.
