As With K2 4.7, the upgrade mandates a consolidated K2 database.

As per K2 policy, K2 4.5 is out of support now. So, if you are on it, it is critical you upgrade now.

If you still haven't consolidated your K2 databases, or if you are on K2 4.5 or a prior version then you must upgrade right now.

If you are on K2 4.6.11 or earlier then you have to also move up quickly to 4.7 or K2 Five.
