Product Maintenance Services


Product Maintenance

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.

  • Target Audience
    • The SOS provides support for all customers with a support contract.
  • Scope
    • 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.
