Automate upgrade / addons


is there an integrated option in the configuration to automate the upgrade process / updates for the add-ons? Or which way do you recommend to achieve this?

Thank you

No there is not.
I would always want to be present when running an upgrade on my Firewall to confirm that everything went as expected.

You can also automate this by activating the automatic Upgrade in the configuration.

This is misleading then.

This option were active in earlier versions. I’ve corrected the wiki.

As Adolf wrote, it is better to be present when an update is running. Further I don’t believe, that you can define a ‘optimal update time’, it depends on the actual use of the system.


I think there can be good reason to automatize the process. At least to have the option to do so from the gui without hazle.

If you know a good time for an update, you can integrate this into fcrontab.
It’s not from the GUI, but to find this time you should be used to the CLI nevertheless.
