Last updated on NOVEMBER 13, 2020
Applies to:Blockchain Platform Cloud Service - Version N/A and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
Starting with Oracle Blockchain Platform version 19.1.3, the SDKs used to write client applications have been updated. As a result, your client application may have to be updated. Applications written with an earlier version of SDKs may encounter errors when used against v19.1.3 or a later version. For details on how to update your application, please refer to https://docs.oracle.com/en/cloud/paas/blockchain-cloud/user/upgrade-oracle-blockchain-platform-19.1.3.html.
By default, all of your Oracle Blockchain Platform instance(s) will be upgraded during the scheduled upgrade window on April 12th to 14th, 2019. However, as this requires you to change your client application(s), you have an option to opt-out from upgrade during this maintenance window and instead, have your instance(s) upgraded on the next scheduled maintenance window on May 3rd- May5th, 2019. If you would like to avail this option, please let Oracle Support team know by March 29th, 2019 by filing an SR as per instructions below.
To opt-out from upgrade during the first maintenance window of April 12th – April 14, 2019, create a MOS SR at support.oracle.com:
- On the “Cloud” tab of the SR Creation Wizard , select “Blockchain Platform Cloud Service” as the Service Type.
- Then select “2. Managing Service Instances > Change Maintenance Window” for the Problem Type.
- Set the Severity to 3. Fill the rest of the mandatory fields like Problem Summary, Description and Support Identifier and click Next.
- Follow the wizard to provide any additional information requested and submit the SR.
During the planned maintenance window, you may experience the following impact for up to five minutes:
- Connection attempts to peer processes to invoke transactions may timeout.
- Attempt to access service components, such as service console, REST-Proxy endpoints or certificate authority may result in HTTP 502 error.
Will there be any workarounds available?
If any of the above mentioned behavior is observed, please retry the operation. Once the unplanned maintenance activity has completed, your Oracle Blockchain Platform Cloud services will return to normal operation.
Maintenance window start time
Maintenance window will start at 8 PM April 12th Ashburn and Phoenix Local Data Center Time Zone and 2 AM April 13th London and Frankfurt Local Data Center Time Zone and will last for up to 8 hours.
