Upgrade Agent have limitation of simultaneous upgrades to 10 or fewer Agent - which is problematic if customer have 50.000 UCD Agents to upgrade

Upgrade Agent feature have limitation described on documentation as: "Updating many agents simultaneously can have a significant affect the server. As a rule-of-thumb, limit the number of simultaneous upgrades to 10 or fewer." Which is problematic to large customers as we have approximately 50.000 of UCD Agents which need to be upgraded from version 7.0.x to 7.2.x (or 7.3.x). Please remove that limitation and simplify upgrade process to able to upgarde in fast track 50.000 of UCD Agents.

    Thank You for your input. There is no enforced limit, it is a recommendation to lower the effect onto the server as all of the agents updating would download, then disconnect, connect and so on.

    The best way is to use an external script (python, ansible, chef) to upgrade existing agents in bulk.

    You can find some ansible examples here: which you can use to build an ansible playbook for upgrading agents.
