Scheduled - <b>Who is affected: </b>GovCMS Drupal 9 SaaS community
<b>Advice </b>
You are invited to preview how the Drupal Core 9.4 changes will affect your website.
The preview window is available <b>Monday 8 August</b> until <b>Wednesday 31 August 2022</b>.


You can access the preview/govcms_update environment via the dashboard.
You will need to prioritise the checking of your preview, as this will alert you to any issues when 9.4 is applied to your site.


Ensure you check the functionality of your preview including theme, webforms and integration with external services. The Drupal Core change will not affect your site's content.
Reminder: This will not count towards your maximum number of environments in your project.


If there is functionality in the preview feature branch not working, consult your developers and if required,
advise the GovCMS team by raising a Service Desk ticket. We have also published preview branch support documentation in the Service Desk Knowledge Base.


We encourage PaaS customers to schedule this core upgrade as once Drupal Core 9.3.x reaches end of
life in December 2022 it will no longer be covered by Drupal Security. 
If you have any concerns, raise a ticket at https://www.govcms.support

❗ IMPORTANT NOTICE 1: deployments during maintenance window

- PaaS and D7 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
- The latest configuration from your production database has been 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.
