Amazon Managed Workflows for Apache Airflow (MWAA) now supports in-place version upgrades for environments version 2.x and later.

Amazon MWAA is a managed orchestration service for Apache Airflow that makes it easier to set up and operate end-to-end data pipelines in the cloud. With in-place version upgrades on Amazon MWAA, customers can seamlessly upgrade their existing version 2.x environments to newer available Airflow versions while retaining the execution history and configurations, enabling them to leverage the latest capabilities of the Airflow platform. Amazon MWAA manages the entire upgrade process, from provisioning new Apache Airflow versions to upgrading the metadata database. In case of a failure during the upgrade, Amazon MWAA is designed to roll back to the previous stable version and the associated metadata database snapshot.

You can upgrade your existing Apache Airflow 2.0 and later environments on Amazon MWAA with just a few clicks in the AWS Management Console in all currently supported Amazon MWAA regions. To learn more about in-place version upgrades, visit the Amazon MWAA documentation and the blog post that introduces this feature.
