Verifying hotfix installation results
After you install hotfixes, verify that the installation was successful.
- Review your logs to verify that no system errors occurred during the installation process.
- Make the system available to users for a period of time to test the functionality that is provided in the hotfix. Verify that your issue has been fixed and that the hotfix did not introduce any unwanted changes.
- To make the hotfix permanent, commit the hotfix. This enables you to commit and roll back future hotfixes.
To remove the hotfix, roll back the hotfix.
- Rolling back hotfixes
If an uncommitted hotfix introduces unwanted changes to your system, you can remove it by rolling it back. You cannot roll back committed hotfixes. If you have more than one uncommitted hotfix, roll them all back and reinstall the hotfixes you want to keep.
- Committing hotfixes
Commit all uncommitted hotfixes to make the hotfixes a permanent part of the system.
- Applying hotfixes
Hotfixes are software updates that Pega creates to fine-tune the behavior of a release of Pega Platform.
