This section describes additional tasks to perform after the new rules schema and the existing data schema have been upgraded.
Pega has reviewed the features and fixes in Pega Platform and has identified the areas where an upgrade from Pega Infinity release 8.x to 8.y will have an upgrade impact. An upgrade impact occurs when a feature or enhancement imposes a noticeable or blocking change. Review the release notes with upgrade impact to determine whether you need to perform additional steps before or after an upgrade. For more information, see Pega Platform changes with upgrade impact.
- Reconfiguring the application server
If you performed an out-of-place patch, you must reconfigure the application server to use the new rules schema. The process is different for each application server.
- Restarting Pega Platform
Restart Pega Platform to load the updated code and rules from the patched rules schema.
- For systems configured for High Availability: Reverting the cluster settings
If you enabled rule migration functionality before the patch, you must revert the cluster settings after the cluster restart to notify the system that the patch is complete.
- Reviewing log files
The patch creates a series of log files in the Pega-image \scripts\logs directory. Review the log files to ensure no outstanding issues were introduced during the patch process.
- Testing your applications
Rigorous tests of each patch release ensure that the update has no known compatibility issues between patch versions. Perform your own sanity or smoke testing after reviewing the list of Resolved Issues to revalidate appropriate features or functions in your application that a patch might affect.
