Upgrade Process

The Telepresence CLI will periodically check for new versions and notify you when an upgrade is available. Running the same commands used for installation will replace your current binary with the latest version.

Terminal
# Upgrade via brew:
brew upgrade datawire/blackbird/telepresence
# OR upgrade manually:
# 1. Download the latest binary (~60 MB):
sudo curl -fL https://app.getambassador.io/download/tel2/darwin/amd64/latest/telepresence -o /usr/local/bin/telepresence
# 2. Make the binary executable:
sudo chmod a+x /usr/local/bin/telepresence

After upgrading your CLI you must stop any live Telepresence processes by issuing telepresence quit, then upgrade the Traffic Manager by running telepresence connect

Note that if the Traffic Manager has been installed via Helm, telepresence connect will never upgrade it. If you wish to upgrade a Traffic Manager that was installed via the Helm chart, please see the the Helm documentation
