Release notes

Release notes are created for each release of Blue Prism, providing details about the release (such as required database version and certifications achieved) and a summary of each enhancement and fix.

Blue Prism can be updated from one version to another without the need to install each intermediate release. For example, a system can be updated directly from v4.2.5 to the latest version.

Before updating Blue Prism in a production environment, ensure the following steps are followed:

  1. Review the release notes for the appropriate release to find out about any new features and fixes.
  2. Review the upgrade notices to see if there are any considerations relating to the upgrade path being followed. For example, is there any known actions that are required as part of the upgrade? Is a new license key is required? Is an update to Login Agent is required?
  3. Take a backup of the Blue Prism database(s).
  4. Apply the update to development and test environments to validate the appropriate processing of processes. Functional and non-functional verification is recommended – non-functional testing could include reviewing the average handling time of core processes before and after the update has been applied.
  5. Where relevant, update any existing processes to take account of new or improved features and perform any appropriate testing.  Where this includes importing the latest version of provided VBOs, all processes which reference these should be re-verified.
