ADO.NET Connection Strings and ODBC Connections
As of OnBase 18, the database connection method for the ACC Document Import Service is ADO.NET connection strings. The ACC Document Import Service no longer supports ODBC connections to connect to the OnBase database. If you are upgrading from version 17 or earlier, you must update your solution to use connection strings, either by running the ACC Document Import Service installer or by manually adding the connection strings to the configuration file for the service.
Verify User Browsers
OnBase browser support is updated for each release. Before upgrading your ACC solution, ensure that your users are working with browsers supported for version Foundation 23.1.
