Solr Reindex Advice
- Websites with Solr Search configured are required to be manually updated during the deployment
- Search indexes will be rebuilt immediately with minimal customer impact.
- We anticipate that the Solr enabled sites will have finished their deployments and had their search indexes rebuilt by 11:00AM-12:00PM (AEDT).
- More importantly, your website’s search function will only be unavailable for a short period of manual reindexing during this time.

Deployment schedule plan:
- Commence from 6am Tuesday 21 November 2023 and will be conducted throughout the daytime.
- Production branches completed by 10am Wednesday 22 November 2023
- Non-Production branches completed by 10am Thursday 23 November 2023

❗ 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
- 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.
