Overview of the deployment process
See the Cloud release schedule for important dates, release type and cadence information.
Upgrade your Configured Commerce instance before requesting deployment.
If Optimizely identifies an issue that requires immediate resolution outside the normal release cadence, we will build a hotfix.
We only build hotfixes for the current cloud release. Applying the hotfix will automatically update your environment to the current cloud release, if applicable. See Current hotfixes for a list of hotfixes for the current release. We recommend following this article to receive updates. Note that the most recent hotfix contains all previous hotfixes.
Applying a hotfix will increase your current month's build number, so expect that the final numbers in the version will not match.
Optimizely tests hotfixes specifically for the identified issue and does not perform full regression testing. We expect the customer and/or partner to test all hotfixes in the Sandbox environment before requesting deployment to Production.
Deployment process updates
Deployments through Mission Control for Configured Commerce Cloud are here! Customers in v2+ environments can deploy in significantly wider windows than our previous Wednesday and Friday deploy times.
Starting on August 8, 2022, new deployment requests for Configured Commerce customers in containers are handled by the Optimizely Service Desk. Requests entered before this date will still be done by the Optimizely Configured Commerce SRE team.
The deployment process varies based on your Configured Commerce instance's hosting infrastructure version.
Refer to our Infrastructure overview article to learn more.
