These release notes describe new features, update recommendations, previous release descriptions, known issues, and other information related to the current Cleo Clarify release.
This release includes updates to both the Studio and Server. The latest (cumulative) version of the Studio/Server update can be obtained via the update functionality within the product.
There are dependencies between the latest Studio and Server updates. For this release functionality to operate fully, both server and studio should be at v4.17.1.
Before you update - recommended practices
- Always update the Studio first.
- Update the Local Test server next.
- Update all remaining servers (QA, PROD, etc.).
Note: If your current Server Cluster version is v4.11 or lower, please do not update the Server Cluster until first contacting Technical Support at +1 815-282-7894 or 1-866-444-CLEO (2536).
- Make sure all Projects and related resources in your Workspace have been committed to an SVN repository.
- Stop any testing being done within your Studio; the update process requires a Studio restart. This means the Local Test server will be stopped.
- Back up your Studio installation directory.
- Temporarily stop external notifications being sent to Clarify during the update process; this includes the Clarify/Harmony messaging framework if integrated.
- Reset your Studio Perspective. (Main menu | Window | Reset Perspective)
Please refer to the System Update instructions provided in the Getting Started with the Cleo Clarify Server/Studio install guides, available from the Solution Center on support.cleo.com.
