Thanks for reporting this.
Could you provide more details (error message, exception stack trace) that you are getting?
This is unexpected, as the changes to flink-avro serializers in 1.7.x should be backwards compatible.
More details on how the restore failed will be helpful here.
I am trying to migrate from Flink 1.6.3 to 1.7.1 but am not able to restore
the job from a savepoint taken in 1.6.3.
We are using an AsyncFunction to publish Avro records to SQS. The state for
the AsyncWaitOperator cannot be restored because of serializer changes in
flink-avro from 1.6.3 to 1.7.1.
Any idea how to avoid this problem? Maybe start the job with flink-avro
1.6.3 or will that break other parts?
