How can I upgrade from 2014-12-02 to version 2015-08-01
Within the Azure Portal navigate to the Logic Apps section and expand the details by selecting a workflow based on the 2014-12-02-preview schema version. Once the details blade has opened, the ribbon should contain a button called “Update Schema”. Clicking on this button will open another blade which contains all options and steps required to complete the schema update.
Using an older schema version / using the old designer
The new designer is still missing options which were previously available. In addition, the older schema is using different connectors / managed logic apps which you already be familiar with. Therefore, you might want to create a new workflow using the older my 2014-12-02-preview schema.
The article below explains the steps if full detail. Just keep in mind that you might need to rewrite code in case you are using new workflow language functions like Foreach, Parse etc.
