Upgrade / Outage dates to the archive (KEEP), test (SITST) and development (USER) versions of the system will be communicated to interested parties as these become available, major dates are noted below:

Environment Type Dates Status
SITS Test (SITST) Data Refresh

SITS Test (SITST) Upgrade to 9.7.0

SITS Archive (KEEP) Upgrade to 9.7.0

SITS Development (USER) Data Refresh

SITS Development (USER) Upgrade to 9.7.0

Note - for the SITST and USER environments a data refresh means that all data will be wiped and replaced with a copy of data on PROD. Users should therefore note these dates with caution to ensure that any developments are backed up before a refresh takes place.


The next SITS Upgrade will change the system from version 9.5.0, through v9.6.0 to v9.7.0. When considering release notes you should view both v9.6.0 and v9.7.0.
