Upgrading Airbyte instance and custom connector challenges


Guidance on upgrading Airbyte instance and connectors, handling deprecated fields in custom connector


Hello Airbyte community,

I hope this message finds you well. I’m in the process of upgrading our Airbyte instance from version 0.50.13 to 0.50.41, and I’ve encountered a couple of challenges.

Firstly, I would appreciate any guidance on the standard procedure for upgrading Airbyte and Airbyte connectors to the latest version while maintaining existing connections. Are there any best practices or considerations I should be aware of?

Secondly, my custom Instagram connector, developed on top of the existing one, is facing issues due to deprecated fields as the base Facebook API has been upgraded from version 17 to 18. I’m looking for insights on how to address and update these deprecated fields within the custom connector.

Any shared experiences or advice from the community would be immensely helpful.

Thank you for your time and assistance!
