Migrating upgrade fixes to production

When you are ready to migrate your upgrade fixes, enable your staging and production stages and start a deployment to the production environment. On Pega Cloud Services, you perform these after entering your 60-minute validation window.

Repeat this procedure for each application upgrade pipeline.

  1. If the pipeline is not open, in the navigation pane of Deployment Manager, click Pipelines Application pipelines , and then click the name of the pipeline.

  2. Click Actions Pipeline model .

  3. Select the check boxes for the Staging and Production stages.

  4. Click Save.

  5. At the top of the page, click the back icon.

  6. Diagnose your pipeline to troubleshoot issues and verify your pipeline configuration. For more information, see Diagnosing a pipeline.

  7. Click Start deployment.

  8. In the Start deployment dialog box, start a new deployment:

    1. Click Generate new artifact.

    2. In the Deployment name field, enter descriptive text about the deployment.

    3. Click Submit.

      When you run the deployment, and Deployment Manager promotes your changes to the temporary production environment (Staging stage). The deployment stops at the manual task in the Production stage that you added to indicate the go/no-go decision.
  9. For each application, perform application confidence testing on the temporary production environment. For more information, see Understanding confidence testing.

  10. If you upgrade from version Pega Platform 8.4.1 or later on Pega Cloud Services, go to My Support Portal and in the My Pega Cloud tab, indicate your approval for the upgrade on your production environment by using the go/no-go banner. You can skip this step if you upgrade from an earlier version or for on-premises systems.

    In Pega Cloud environments, Pega deletes the temporary production URL and initiates a rolling restart of your live (production) environment.
  11. Complete the manual approval step that represents the outcome of the go/no-go decision to move the application and test packages to production.

    Complete the manual step in the pipeline
    1. If the pipeline is not open, in the navigation pane, click Pipelines Application pipelines , and then click the name of the pipeline.

    2. Click Complete.

Approving the manual step resumes the deployment to the production environment, which reimports any data instances in the application product using the application test product rule you created earlier in your upgrade pipeline.
