Important: IBM UrbanCode Deploy does not support upgrading if you are using DB2 on a z/OS server. If you attempt to upgrade by using this fix pack, an error message is displayed and the upgrade does not occur. Do not upgrade to the fix pack if you use DB2 on z/OS. A fix is being planned for a future release.

When you upgrade to version of IBM UrbanCode Deploy, new security features erase old component version import logs to hide secure information. If you want to keep the logs, in the file, set the com.urbancode.ds.cleanup.sourceConfig.fullCleanupSkip property to True.

If you are upgrading from a previous version of IBM UrbanCode Deploy, you might be affected by changes to the security features in the product. After upgrading, any security type that previously had edit permission will automatically have all of the associated edit subpermissons that were introduced with the new version of IBM UrbanCode Deploy. For example, if the cloud connection type had the edit permission granted, then after upgrading, the cloud connection type will have the Delete, Edit Basic Settings, and Manage Teams subpermissions.

Important: When you upgrade to IBM UrbanCode Deploy, the values of all properties in the history for existing deployments are obscured to ensure that all secure property values are obscured. In the deployment history for deployments that you run after you upgrade, only secure properties are obscured in the logs.

Impact Assessment
Impact Description

This is a maintenance release. It contains fixes for client-reported and internally found defects.


Regression: An error in the Maintenance Delivery Vehicle (MDV) that produces incorrect or unexpected behavior causing a supported feature to stop functioning as designed.
This includes:

  • Coding errors that cause a regression
  • Documentation or packaging problems that cause a regression
  • Errors reported in a new function delivered in a MDV that cause a regression

Incomplete: An error in the MDV has not regressed, but does not work as designed.
This includes:

  • Fixed APARs which did not solve the original problem but did not break anything new
  • APARs reporting documentation errors, such as readme errors, that cause problems applying an MDV but do not lead to a regression

  • Regression and incomplete APARs are considered fix-in-error or MDV-in-error
  • Definitions above apply only to valid APARs that result in product fixes (APARs returned as working-as-designed are not assessed for being fix-in-error)
  • Issues in major releases due to new functionality do not apply in this definition

There are no known regressions to report.
