About to upgrade from 1.16.3 -> 1.17.1 and we use a number of plugins list below. I have seen several topics about problems with plugins and moving from 1.16 -> 1.17 do you have some upgrade recommendations I can refer to, to avoid problems?
Attachments on the filesystem
Password Manament Policies
Two Factor Authenticator
Our current setup:
osTicket v1.16.3 // osTicket-1.16.3-Awesome-101
PHP 8.0.25 // MySQL 5.7.39 // Apache web server

Yep, all completed. So I:
Put Cloudflare into Dev mode to bypass caching
Disabled and deleted all plugins
Followed the guide here: https://osticketawesome.com/installation-instructions/
Reinstalled new (but same) plugins using OSTicket wizard
Reinstated the custom logos.
All sorted, version 1.17.1!

The only problem with plugins was the Attachment Inline/Preview plugin in the first release for 1.7, but that was resolved in the next release.
I doubt you would have had any trouble without taking extra precautions, but thanks for reporting back and sharing your solution.
I’ve never used Cloudflare. Is it important to put it into dev mode when upgrading osTicket or osTicket Awesome?

Yes, Cloudflare does an awesome of caching (as well as security – I block countries who should not have access as well) taking lots of load of the origin server but I have found when upgrading OSTicket unless it is disabled and then reenabled afterwards you get really odd results and pages not loading or behaving properly.
The option is here:
