Specifying the Hotfix Catalog location for Pega Hotfix Manager

Is your Pega deployment running an older version of Pega Platform?

Best Practice: Keep current with Pega

Update the location of the Hotfix Catalog

Why this change is important

Is your Pega deployment running an older version of Pega Platform?

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:

Best Practice: Keep current with Pega

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.

Update the location of the Hotfix Catalog

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:
https://hotfixcatalog.pega.com/CATALOG.ZIP

After you make this change, you do not need to restart the application server.

This change will allow you to obtain the latest Hotfix Catalog, the list of hotfixes used to perform a scan of your system to determine which hotfixes are installed.

Why this change is important

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.
