v4.11.4 to v4.14.0 migration guide

The Strapi v4.11.4 to v4.14.0 migration guide upgrades v4.11.4 to v4.14.0. Strapi v4.14.0 migrated the strapi/strapi package to TypeScript and introduced a new @strapi/typings package. This migration is required if you have used TypeScript in your project prior to 4.14.0. The migration guide consists of:

  • Upgrading the application dependencies
  • Generating your TypeScript typings
  • Reinitializing the application

Plugins extension that create custom code or modify existing code, will need to be updated and compared to the changes in the repository. Not updating the plugin extensions could break the application.

Upgrading the application dependencies to 4.14.0

☑️ Prerequisites

Stop the server before starting the upgrade.

  1. Upgrade all of the Strapi packages in package.json to 4.14.0:

    path: package.json
    // ...
    "dependencies": {
    "@strapi/strapi": "4.14.0",
    "@strapi/plugin-users-permissions": "4.14.0",
    "@strapi/plugin-i18n": "4.14.0"
    // ...
  2. Save the edited package.json file.

  3. Run the install command:

    Install the upgraded version:
