[Best practice] Upgrade custom module

Discussion created by Ludovic ROBINOT on Jun 6, 2016

Hi all,


We have developed/deployed a custom Package containing some custom Modules and some customisation of existing Modules. The new modules were created using Module Builder. Then the code was modified, evolved to the final version and installed on the production server.


Now we need to update some modules by adding some fields and logic to one or more of the custom Modules.


What is the best known practice to achieve this?

  1. Change manifest.php to add custom fields, this is what I used for existing Modules, like Contacts?
  2. Update the definition of the module, as it was just created?
  3. Other method?

Thank you for your help.


Note: We are using SugarCRM Pro v7.6.
