Trying to semi-automate my upgrade process by using "drush civicrm-upgrade", but I'm concerned that any critical messages, e.g. that default message templates have changed, won't be displayed in the shell.

I have a vague recollection that there exists a URL which will display the site's most recent upgrade messages, but I can't find it now in the documentation. Is there such a URL?

And does drush civicrm-upgrade display such messages in the shell?

I just ran drush civicrm-upgrade-db and saw upgrade messages in the output.

While the formatting could certainly be improved, this does seem to work (in some cases?).

As Coleman notes below and in CRM-16946 - pre upgrade warnings/notices are not displayed by Drush upgrade, while post upgrade notices are.

  • Agreed - I've used drush civicrm-upgrade-db a bunch. Upgrade messages appear as raw HTML. Commented Aug 26, 2015 at 4:09

Post-upgrade messages do display via drush. However pre-upgrade warnings do not. There's an open issue for this, and help would be most welcome.
