Summary


This article describes the process of updating the InfoBurst Platform.


Requirements

  • Back up the InfoBurst Platform environment

Recommendations

  • Always update to the current build. Fixes are only issued for the current build.
  • Updates are cumulative. No need to update incrementally.
  • Fully test and qualify new builds before updating in production. We recommend testing all production Bursts, XDCs, and Apps. InfoSol can offer assistance with restoring a copy of your production repository for use in your test environment. Please contact InfoSol Help Desk for details.
