Release process

Our release process typically involves deploying updates and new features to the staging environment first. Customers with access to the staging environment can evaluate and test the changes under real-world conditions.

This testing period ensures that any issues are identified and resolved before the release reaches the broader production environment. However, releases may also be deployed directly to production for critical patches and high-priority fixes.

Understanding staging and production environments

As part of our deployment process, the version numbers between the staging and production environments may differ since releases are staggered between staging and production.

Staging environment

The staging environment serves as a testing and quality assurance platform before new releases are deployed to the production environment. It allows users to validate changes and updates in a controlled setting before they are made available to a broader audience.

note

Staging environments are typically available only to customers an agreement that includes this additional environment. If you are unsure whether your organization has access to the staging environment, please reach out to our support team or your account manager for clarification.

Production environment

The production environment is the live and operational version of the software accessible to your buyers and sellers. It represents the stable and officially released version of the product.
