Updating a containerized Shinyproxy to the current version 3.0.2

This might be a dumb question, but I’m relatively new to Docker:
I have a containerized Shinyproxy running on version 2.6.1 and I’ll like to update it to the current version 3.0.2.
Is it possible to upgrade it easily? If it’s possible, what steps are involved?

for me it was as easy as replacing the existing JAR file.
If you’re using things like templates to customize your user interface /home page then that will need some updating which is already documented in another topic.

Thank you very much for your answer, but unfortunately my case is not a jar Shinyproxy deployment but a containerized one, as this: https://www.shinyproxy.io/documentation/deployment/#containerized-shinyproxy

Ok, I was able to do it and it’s pretty simple. I leave it here in case someone else needs to do it:

  • Update the first line of the dockerfile on the shinyproxy directory:

FROM openanalytics/shinyproxy:[current_version_number]

  • from the shinyproxy directory build the new shinyproxy image:

sudo docker build . -t shinyproxy
