Specifying the Hotfix Catalog location for Pega Hotfix Manager
Older versions of Pega Platform ™ are currently the following releases:
- Pega 6.x
- Pega 7.x
- Pega 8 releases prior to 8.1.9, 8.2.8, 8.3.5, 8.4.4, 8.5.1, and 8.6
If yes, take one of the following actions:
Avoid the need to apply hotfixes by Keeping current with Pega.
If you cannot apply the latest Pega Platform patch release and need to continue using an older version, then update the link to the location of the Hotfix Catalog in Pega Hotfix Manager.
If you are using an older version of Pega Platform, update the location of the Hotfix Catalog:
In the ruleset Pega-UpdateManager, edit the Data-Admin-System-Setting to specify pzRefreshCatalogFTPString with the following value:
When you use the Hotfix System Scan feature to determine which hotfixes are installed on your Pega system, you can optionally download the latest available catalog, the list of all Pega hotfixes developed and delivered to clients.
If you choose not to download the latest available catalog, then the system scan uses the catalog available on your file system, that is, the catalog inside the hotfix package (the DL file). If you have never downloaded a hotfix catalog or have never installed a hotfix package (DL file), then the system scan reports that there is no catalog available.
The old Hotfix Catalog location, pegaftp2.pega.com, is being decommissioned.
Therefore, you must update the Hotfix Catalog location (the URL) to hotfixcatalog.pega.com by updating the Pega-UpdateManager DASS pzRefreshCatalogFTPString.
