Investigating - Some customer may have had their Google Analytics code removed as part of the GovCMS deployment over the weekend.

Customers should log into their site and review their Google Analytics codes in their site settings. Where missing, customers should re-include their Google Analytics code.

GovCMS is currently investigating a solution for this issue.

Jun 24, 2024
Completed - The scheduled maintenance has been completed.
Jun 24, 11:18 AEST
In progress - Scheduled maintenance is currently in progress. We will provide updates as necessary.
Jun 21, 18:00 AEST
Scheduled - Advice
- Who is affected: GovCMS SaaS community.
- Scaffold tooling was updated on Monday 10 June 2024 .
- It addresses an urgent Google Analytics fix required by GovCMS.
- This update will require a deployment block, and has purposefully been scheduled after hours on a Friday evening to minimise impact on projects.
- No outages are expected to websites during the deployment process.
- The D10 distribution will continue to be supported after this update.
- If you have any concerns, raise a ticket at https://www.govcms.support


Deployment schedule plan:
- Commence from 6:00PM (AEST) Friday 21 June 2024
- Production branches completed by 11:00 PM (AEST) Friday 21 June 2024
- Once production branches are completed, status page will be updated and Non-Production branches will kick off
- Non-Production branches should be completed by 6:00 PM (AEST) Sunday 23 June 2024


❗ IMPORTANT NOTICE 1: Deployments during maintenance window
- During the scheduled maintenance window, ALL D10 SaaS deployments will be blocked while we deploy to the D10 Production branches.
- While the production block is on, you will still be able to develop and deploy to non-production feature branches.
- PaaS deployments schedules are not impacted.

❗ IMPORTANT NOTICE 2: Update local environments
- Ensure you update your local environments to the latest release. Not rebasing your codebase results in mismatched database configuration causing errors in forklifts and deployments.

❗ IMPORTANT NOTICE 3: For customers with configuration management enabled
- If there is a configuration change on your project, the latest configuration from your production database will be created for you in GitLab in a branch called action-required/latest-config-export.
- You need to review and test the changes in the merge request. Once you are satisfied, please check the “Delete source branch” box and click “Merge”.
- This MUST be done before any new commits.
- All subsequent deployments will be blocked in the CI pipeline until this merge request branch is deleted
- Not merging the latest configuration provided could result in your new database configuration reverting to an older version when you next deploy, potentially causing issues for your website.
- If no merge request is lodged after a release then no configuration has changed and no further action is required.


Information for PaaS customers
- If you use the GovCMS scaffold, you should aim to apply this update as soon as possible.
- Updated files released will be available from https://github.com/govCMS/scaffold-tooling/releases/tag/5.3.0
