Product Maintenance



  • Support Options are provided within the scope of the Product Maintenance terms below.


General Terms

Product Maintenance is a service for all customers that provides bug-fixes from the General Availability date through to the Last Public Maintenance Release: see also the Product Life Cycle article for more information. See detailed information with this document: Product Maintenance Services



  • Product Maintenance provides customers with releases after the General Availability date up to the end of the Maintenance Period.
  • Should a critical error be detected in a release during its maintenance period then the SOS would fix that bug in a way that does not require complete testing of the release. Testing could be reduced to the bug-fix, instead of a full test of the scheduling environment. In such cases the SOS would apply the bug-fix to the latest minor version of that release, e.g. 1.7.3.
