Trying to upgrade 1.2 to 1.3 and I'm receiving this error when trying to import an app to the new version: "Some widgets are newer, import is failed" I followed this procedure:
some of my apps didn't come over using the command prompt so I used the GUI interface.
This happens when you have an app that uses a custom widget that was (for example version 18.104.22.168 of the widget) and then you have another app that uses version 22.214.171.124 and you import the first app. What happens is the 126.96.36.199 version of the widget is copied to the stemapp widgets folder and then 188.8.131.52 version is now trying to be copied and thus the error. Before you try to upgrade to a new version of WAB you need to do some house keeping and make sure all your apps are using the same version of widgets. Then when you upgrade you will not have an issue.
I'm trying to import a 1.2 project into 1.3 using the GUI, and it just sits there. It has a custom widget, but I already copied my custom widgets into the widgets folder. Did I do something wrong?
Robert, does this mean I have to upgrade the widgets in my server/apps folder in my old version of wab? I assume that just means copying and pasting the folder as that's what I've done in the past.
It seems to be an issue when you have a custom widget that is part of your app that has a manifest.json that is for a WAB version that is more than one version old. So yes I would make sure that all custom widget in your WAB 1.2 apps are using the latest 1.2 version of those widgets. Then you should not have any issue upgrading.
