Upgrade SMS in AWS from R80.30 to R81.10

We are looking to upgrade our AWS SMS from R80.30 to R81.10.  We want to keep the current ip address the same. Has anyone done such an upgrade, if so can you share steps you used and any issues you came across. We use a payg license. Thanks for any help.

Never done it myself, but had customer who did it and they said it was exactly how you would do it on a regular mgmt server.

You cannot do an in-place upgrade with the Security Management Server in public cloud as of yet.
Which means you follow the Advanced Upgrade procedure in the Install/Upgrade guide (migrate_server export/import), which involves creating a new management instance.
The IP address can be preserved, but there's no actual reason to do this since once you push policy from the new management server with a different IP (but the same internal certificate authority as the old management), the gateways will accept the new management IP without issue.
