Applying a patch in-place

Suggest edit
Updated on April 12, 2022

Apply a patch in-place on systems that do not require minimal downtime.

The in-place patch process involves system downtime, which means you cannot use the system while you apply the patch; for information about the zero-downtime patch process in which you can continue to use the system during the patching process, see Patching systems without downtime (for Pega Platform version 8.4 and later).

Performing an in-place patch can be summarized in the following steps:

  1. Shut down the system.
  2. Patch the rules and data schema. For details, see Patch methods for an in-place schema.

  3. Restart the system to complete the patch .
