Answer

For how to upgrade, see the below sections:

 

How to Upgrade if Proxy is HTTP / HTTPS / WAF

If the proxy you're upgrading is one of the following service types: HTTP / HTTPS / WAF, consider Silverline's new 'Application Proxy' model, which will allow for significant new features and functionality:

  • HTTP/2
  • Multi-FQDN Support
  • Regional PoP Support
  • F5® Application Traffic Insight Support (Optional)
  • Shape Security Support (Optional)
  • Future HTTP/S Enhancements (mTLS, etc)

For procedure, see: How to Clone a 'Classic Proxy' to 'Application Proxy'.

  • This article explains the small, but important, differences between 'Classic' proxies and 'Application' proxies

 

How to upgrade if Proxy is not HTTP / HTTPS / WAF

If the proxy you're wanting to upgrade is not HTTP / HTTPS / WAF:

  • Upgrading is supported for classic proxies that are on the legacy proxy infrastructure. Eligibility will be visible in the Silverline Portal with an 'Upgrade Available' badge on the app/proxy list page.
  • Silverline Engineering will do this for the customers with an Internal Change Management in place.
  • Procedure: Reach out to the Silverline SOC to request upgrade: Contact SOC / Contact Silverline Support
