After you upgrade to the latest release of Pega Infinity, test your applications to ensure that they work with the latest Pega Infinity release.
- Performing application validation after upgrades
After you upgrade Pega Platform, upgrade your application and schema, identify and resolve potential conflicts, and validate the upgrade. As a best practice, run all of the upgrade utilities.
- Validating the completion of upgrade testing
For Pega Infinity upgrades on Pega Cloud Services, during the Basic upgrade phase, the Application Testing Tracker automatically verifies that you have completed upgrade testing on the cloned, upgraded staging environment before Pega upgrades your production environment. By using this service, you can monitor what you need to test so that the upgrade to production proceeds.
- Performing regression testing on applications
After you upgrade to Pega Platform version 8.5.1 or later on the cloned, staging environment, rerun regression testing on your applications. Significant changes from one release to the next might cause instability in your applications. By performing regression testing, you can identify any unexpected changes to application behavior after the upgrade and verify that all your features work as expected.
