Migrate data to another instance

I’m working on a project with pimcore 6.2, added all product data (products, categories, attributes…) and assets.

Let’s suppose I want to reboot the project with a fresh and updated environment (6.7.1) but I want to keep all work done on data side…

Is there a way to do that?

You can follow the pimcore upgrade guide to update it version by version and you will not loose any of your existing data in the process.

Than you.

You mean i should update step by step instead of updating straight to the latest version?

Pimcore has update notes for major version upgrades. E.g. 4 to 5 or 5 to 6.
My guess is that you should be able to directly upgrade from 6.2 to 6.7.1

Make a complete backup and test it.
If you have issues you can restore your previous environment and decide how to go on.

That is a better approach as it gives you an idea of what needs to be fixed in your application at which version.
So yes, I believe upgrading step by step is a better approach to follow.
