Rebuild the sentry but use existing data sentry

A few days ago I made a topic about not being able to enter the admin page (manage page) but could not be resolved as well. Then I think to install it again, can I use the data in the current sentry to the sentry that I will reinstall? Or maybe there are other suggestions.

I use sentry on-premise and run it in the docker.


I think only the user created during the first run of the sentry docker who has set up as the admin can enter the admin page. The admin created later in Sentry can not access certain manage page, which is my case.

Try to use that first admin account instead.

If you make a reinstall, the admin account will be recreated. Considering the close linkage between accounts and projects, most probably a database restoring will corrupt the whole system.

I currently use the admin account that was first created during install sentry, but I still cannot enter the admin page (manage page)

@liangrong this is the problem, I can’t solve it yet :smiley:

“But if I use the correct authentication password, the error message does not appear.”

then without error message, what error do you have then?

If using the correct password, sentry does not give access to the admin page (manage page) but only reloads the password input page and asks me to enter the password again. that’s the problem, so I can’t go to the admin page to configure my sentry

As long as you keep the Docker volumes around, all upgrades are meant to carry over and migrate existing data.

@BYK Can you help me, I’m using this sentry docker >

@sibunglon - That means you are using the Docker image with your own setup. Without knowing how you set things up, I really cannot help you. The best way to avoid this is to use our advertised onpremise repo which keeps the volumes around.

@BYK If I migrate to onpremise, can existing data be preserved?

Yes it can but you need to map your existing postgres volume manually which would be the same thing as upgrading your normal Docker image based setup.

Oh okey, I’ll try it. thank you @BYK @liangrong
