❗ 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.
