I need your help on proceeding MySQL upgrade when GTID is enabled on Oracle Enterprise MySQL servers, Below are the couple of details
1. topology one master having 3 slaves
2. Current Version : 5.6
3. Consideration: upgrading it to 5.7 and 5.7 to higher in future
Send your thoughts on do's and dont's (limitations) along with references if any.

    Always begin the upgrade on the slaves, promote one of the upgraded slaves and upgrade the old master and configure it as slave of new master. Make sure to not forget to execute mysql_upgrade when upgrading from one major version to another.
