Khoros Maintenance Windows

Khoros Maintenance Windows

To enhance operational efficiency, we are standardizing our maintenance windows across all products effective May 20th 2024.
 

Studio Self Publish for Community will now remain operational during maintenance hours, for continuous delivery and deployment flexibility.

To continuously improve our products and services, Khoros reserves specific, low traffic windows to perform maintenance to your Khoros product.

Examples of maintenance that might be performed include (but are not limited to):

  • Version upgrade to the latest release
  • Configuration of requested feature
  • Deployment of a bug patch/fix to existing version

* Maintenance windows cannot be customized.

 

 

Change windows are set times when planned, no downtime changes are permitted. These changes are scheduled and communicated via the release calendar. By adhering to a set schedule, updates become predictable and manageable.

  • These changes have traditionally not fallen under Maintenance Windows as there is no downtime. 
  • By providing visibility into Change Windows and prescribing regularly scheduled times and dates we can deploy with confidence and keep customers informed.

Good to know that for EMEA, the cut-off time for submitting a studio push to support is by 12PM Noon (PST) on the day of the maintenance window.

I updated the article to reflect the cut-off time. Thanks marconierlich!

I'm a bit confused about the use of 'GMT' and the footnote - I assume that the time is fixed based on local time in San Francisco, and you are converting this to UK time based on the 'normal' time difference (8 hours). If that is the case, it would probably be clearer to change 'GMT' to 'UK time', with a footnote stating this can vary by 1 hour due to differing summer time dates. Or if you want to be strictly accurate just state the San Francisco local time with the 'normal' UK time below.

@nathan thanks for the feedback. Your assumption is correct in that it is based on Pacific time. I will make some adjustments to make this more clear in the near future. Cheers!

What is frequency of these windows ? 

Guide

I am a little confused by the Tues/Thurs  11:59:59 PM - 04:00 AM

Does this mean the maintenance window starts at 11:59:59 PM on THURSDAY and ends at 4 AM on FRIDAY? Knowing the answer to this quickly will be very helpful. 

Thank you.

Hi,

Thanks for the warnings, can we confirm then only downtimes for Communities and Care, and so Reach will be kept up (will not be affected)? 

Kind regards

Chiming in here with @Leandra_N's reply on the Tues/Thurs 11:59:59 PM - 04:00 AM release

 

Does times for updates start 11:59:59PM Thursday to 4:00am Friday? I ask this because I got a notification via email on the Friday at around ~2:00am. Usually do not check stage/prod updates until the email notification. Thanks

Moderator

@rnewell @Leandra_N @SonySQE, yes, updates can start any time between 11:59:59 PM Thursday to 4:00 AM Friday.

We have received an information about the next maintenance on feb 7th 2023. We'll let our users know about it, but is there a default error message popping up during the downtime?

I see that you have received a response from the technical team to the ticket which you created.


Hi @MelA :

 

Thank you for updating the documentation. Does that mean that there will not be any studio publish block on Tuesday and Thursday nights, and we will be able to publish at any time?

When it comes to pushing Khoros changes, can you do it at any time when the community has less traffic, regardless of the day? This also includes upgrades?

Moderator

Hi Abhishek,

That is correct, there will not be a Studio Publish block anymore and you can now publish at any time you like. As to Khoros changes, this simply means that we have the freedom to push changes on any day of the week rather than only on 2 days a week.

Thanks for the update @MelA . Is this changes has been roll out? We are seeing the SSP block to our community today at regular maintenance window time
