Version support policy

A version of Cloud Data Fusion environment is supported for a specific period of time after it is released. During that period, Cloud Data Fusion instances that use the environment version are supported. After that period, instances that continue to use the environment version are no longer supported. When a version is not supported, existing instances will continue to work, but no new instances can be created. No additional fixes will be made and, if you have issues, Cloud Customer Care will recommend upgrading your environment to the latest version.

Cloud Data Fusion version support is defined as follows:

  • 0-18 months after a version of Cloud Data Fusion environment is released: Cloud Data Fusion instances running the version are supported.

  • Beyond 18 months after a version of Cloud Data Fusion environment is released: Cloud Data Fusion instances running the version are unsupported and need to be updated to regain support.
