82 * When upgrading make sure you compare and merge the following XWiki configuration files since some parameters may have been modified, removed or added:
83 ** ##xwiki.cfg##
84 ** ##xwiki.properties##
85 ** ##web.xml##
86 ** ##hibernate.cfg.xml##
87 * Add ##xwiki.store.migration=1## in ##xwiki.cfg## so that XWiki will attempt to automatically migrate your current database to any new schema. Make sure you backup your Database before doing anything.

91 === Migration sending emails ===
92
93 A migration is provided as part of this upgrade that might trigger a reset password of some users. As part of this operation, some emails are automatically being sent by default: a first mail informing about a possible data leak, and a second mail for asking users to reset their password.
94
95 It's possible to chose whether the mails should be sent or not by editing the following properties:
96
97 {{code}}
98 #-# [Since 14.6RC1]
99 #-# [Since 14.4.3]
100 #-# [Since 13.10.8]
101 #-# This option is only used when performing a migration from a wiki before the versions mentioned above.
102 #-#
103 #-# This parameter defines if as part of the migration R140600000XWIKI19869 the passwords of impacted user should be
104 #-# reset or not. It's advised to keep this value as true, now for some usecases advertised administrators might want
105 #-# their users to keep their passwords nevertheless, then enable the configuration and set it to false before the
106 #-# migration is executed.
107 # security.migration.R140600000XWIKI19869.resetPassword = true
108
109 #-# [Since 14.6RC1]
110 #-# [Since 14.4.3]
111 #-# [Since 13.10.8]
112 #-# This option is only used when performing a migration from a wiki before the versions mentioned above.
113 #-#
114 #-# This parameter defines if reset password emails should be sent as part of the migration R140600000XWIKI19869.
115 #-# By default this value is set to true, so emails will be automatically produced. Now it's possible for admin to set
116 #-# this option to false: note that in such case a file containing the list of users for whom a reset password email
117 #-# should be sent will still be created in the permanent directory (named 140600000XWIKI19869DataMigration-users.txt).
118 #-# If this file exists and this property is set back to true after the migration, the file will still be consumed to
119 #-# send the emails, so it's possible to perform the migration and send the emails only later if needed.
120 # security.migration.R140600000XWIKI19869.sendResetPasswordEmail = true
121
122 #-# [Since 14.6RC1]
123 #-# [Since 14.4.3]
124 #-# [Since 13.10.8]
125 #-# This option is only used when performing a migration from a wiki before the versions mentioned above.
126 #-#
127 #-# This parameter defines if a security email information should be sent as part of the migration R140600000XWIKI19869.
128 #-# By default this value is set to true, so emails will be automatically produced. Now it's possible for admin to set
129 #-# this option to false: note that in such case a file containing the list of users for whom a reset password email
130 #-# should be sent will still be created in the permanent directory (named 140600000XWIKI19869DataMigration-users.txt).
131 #-# If this file exists and this property is set back to true after the migration, the file will still be consumed to
132 #-# send the emails, so it's possible to perform the migration and send the emails only later if needed.
133 # security.migration.R140600000XWIKI19869.sendSecurityEmail = true
134 {{/code}}
135
136 Note that the mails are sent after the migration is actually performed, during the wiki intialization by reading a file named ##140600000XWIKI19869DataMigration-users.txt## created in the permanent directory during the migration. So it's possible for an administrator to set the properties for sending the emails to false for performing the migration, and to actually set them back to true before a next restart to send the emails at this moment. Be aware that the file is deleted as soon as the emails are processed to be sent: in case of failure for sending the emails, please check the administration of the wiki to see the status of the created emails.
137
138 It's also possible for administrators to configure the template of the first mail by creating a file named ##140600000XWIKI19869-mail.txt## in the permanent directory. The format of this template is the following:
139
140 (% class="box" %)
141 (((
142 Subject:<the subject of the email>
143 <the plain text content of the email>
144 )))
145
146 By default, the mail template is the following:
147
148 (% class="box" %)
149 (((
150 {{{Subject: Important security issue
151 Dear user,
152
153 due to a bug your password was stored in plain text in our wiki. We cannot exclude that your plain text password was exposed in a data leak. Therefore, you might receive a second email to choose a new password.
154 Please contact the administrator in case of problem or for further questions.}}}
155 )))
156
157 === Renaming of actions related to authentication ===
158
159 Two possible authentication resource URLs can be used to respectively ask for a password reset, and ask for retrieving a username from an email address. The associated resource actions used to be ##/authenticate/reset## and ##/authenticate/forgot##. Since those were not very explicit we renamed them as part of fixing a bug, and they are now respectively named ##/authenticate/resetpassword## and ##/authenticate/retrieveusername##. So be careful to update your URLs if you use those in some places.
