The version 2.6.0 of iTop is fully backward compatible with the previous 2.x versions, however this version introduces quite a few significative changes.
This document highlights issues which can occur while migrating your iTop to this version.
In order to fix a security weakness, we had to change the way filter parameter was encoded in URL. As a result users may have bookmarked iTop URLs which may no more work after updating to iTop 2.6.
As a uniqueness rule has been added, if you have Persons under the same Organization, with the same
employee id, then modification of those Person won't be possible until that collision of
employee id is fixed.
Uniqueness rules have been added on Brand and Model, which are expected to have a unique name. Most probably no duplicates exist in your iTop.
From 2.6.2 Calls to the /pages/ajax.render.php endpoint are now restricted to the backoffice UI for most of the operations. Please adjust any portal extension you would have created and use your own endpoint.
A configuration parameter is available to disable this protection, add the following to the configuration file:
'disable_attachments_download_legacy_portal' => false,
Also you might have an iTop running on MySQL 8, with version 2.6 it's no more possible to upgrade or install iTop on this database. We plan to remove this limitation with iTop2.7.
If you have forced a _delta=“define” in the ITSM Designer or in an Extension on
change can be any sub-class of Change.
You will need to change or ask Combodo to change for you this into _delta=“force”
If not done already, activate the Enhanced Portal during the Setup to replace it.
Regarding recent mcrypt support drop from PHP, we updated the way encryption is handled. Check Encrypt Data to be sure you won't loose access to your previously encrypted data.

In the Config object, the following methods were deprecated in 2.5 and will be removed in 2.7 :
Those methods should be replaced by a call to the generic Config::Get method, with the appropriate variable name, respectively :
