Upgrade from 2012 to 18

Hello Members,

I am busy planning an upgrade of a GW 2012 SP2 system to GW 18 SP2. Unfortunately I couldn't find any info if there is a direct path or not. ( The OES documentations have a nice "supported upgrade path" chapter, that describes this. )
Do I have to upgrade version by version (2012-2014-2014r2-18), or is it possible to jump directly from 2012 to 18?

Thanks,
Gellért

VERY conservative customer. But yes, it's supported

Personally i went this way just in lab, but i didn't encounter any issues, not even when starting with GW8.

Hello Mathias,
I completely overlook that one sentence in the documentation:) Actually I skipped chapter 23.0 and went directly to 23.1.
Thanks!
