Hey Ravi!

Once your server is upgraded to Pega 7.4 and is running, we strongly suggest that you apply the 7.4 Maintenance Pack using the hotfix manager instructions linked to in the above post.

The resolved issues are detailed within the README of the Maintenance Pack distribution.

Hope this helps!

Hey Ravi,

Currently, we are not planning to release any subsequent Maintenance Packs for 7.4. If that plan changes, we will post it as a Pega Support Community Alert

For Pega 8, we are making bug fix patch releases available on a frequent basis.  These will also be posted as Pega Support Community Alerts

Hope that helps!

Hello,

After checking the readme, I see that we have already applied some of the hotfix while other may never apply to our needs.

Could you confirm the maintenance pack has been properly tested to verify that all hotfixes together lead to a stable platform ?

In term of support, if we are on 7.4 may the support ask us to install the maintenance pack before doing more investigation on our cases?

Hello!

The 7.4 Maintenance Pack has undergone our full pre-release quality assurance process to validate that all changes only serve to fix existing issues, not introduce new ones.  While we strongly urge you to apply this to your running 7.4 Pegasystem, there are no changes to any support policies with the release of this Maintenance Pack.

Hope this helps!

Hi Matt,

We are on 7.4 now. Can we install this DL directly? or need to install the HFixes one by one.

Installing DL wont work here I think. Getting Invalid/ unknown type error.

If these needs to be installed manually one by one, I see there are more than 200 HFixes and some are having dependent HFix. Can you please suggest?

Hello!

You should be able to install all HFIXes simultaneously using the DL and the platform hotfix process.  Can you please reach out to me via direct message with more specifics around the error you are facing?

Thanks,

Matt

Hi Matt ,

Should we just install  DL-91389.zip through hotfix manager ,is there any config changes involved in prconfig.xml ,prlog4j2.xml OR any other config files .In README.txt one of the HFIX has installation instruction as below --

Hotfix for HFix-45034 : AuthorizationException installing DL from prpcUtils

Installation Instructions:
Need to replace the attached prpcUtils.properties file and prpcUtils.xml file
in
the scripts/utils folder of the build image,before running the utility apart
from installing the hotfix. 

Just to confirm if we need to import DL ,there is no other changes required except server bounce & clear cache.

Hey Abishek,

Yes - installing using the platform hotfix process (including a system restart), will deploy all fixes in full.

No manual steps beyond that are required.
