I have added the diagrammatic representation for the upgrade. Please let me know your thoughts and if I need to add or follow certain additional steps while doing the upgrade. enter image description here

  • You are missing migration of contact data between Sitecore versions. Take a look here -> doc.sitecore.net/xdb_data_migration_tool Sep 1 '18 at 4:37
  • 1
    Also don't forget that first you need to upgrade from Sitecore (Commerce) 8.1 to 8.2 as Migration tool only supports path from 8.2.x to 9.0.2 -> dev.sitecore.net/Downloads/Sitecore_Commerce/90/… Sep 1 '18 at 4:41
  • Thanks @PeterProchazka for your views but I do see in commercesdn.sitecore.net/SitecoreXC_9.0/Migration/… they have mentioned on "1.1 Initial assumption" section that "These instructions apply to Sitecore Commerce systems 8.2 or older. Data migration from Sitecore Commerce 8.2.1 solutions is not supported. ". So i guess with this I can migrate from 8.1

  • Exactly @Amitabh . You are on Sitecore 8.1 therefore you first need to upgrade to 8.2 in order to use that Migration tool ;) Sep 1 '18 at 18:21
  • My bad I took it the other way. Then what exactly I should do to upgrade it from Sitecore Commerce 8.1? I do understand one option is to upgrade it to 8.2 and then to 9 with help of the commerce migration tool but I hope there may be some other easier or better way to do so
