View documentation for the latest WSO2 Updates 2.0.0.
WSO2 Updates include any Improvements (e.g., bug fixes, security fixes) that are released by WSO2 on top of a released WSO2 product version. With updates, you do not have to wait until the next product version is released to get the fixes you want. Find out more about W SO2 updates at https://wso2.com/updates .
You can get updates using WSO2 in-place updates or WSO2 update manager (WUM). The following table shows the key differences of the two:
|WSO2 in-place updates||WSO2 update manager (WUM)|
|You can install the in-place updates tool via a WUM update for all the WUM-supported products.||You can download and install the WUM tool from https://wso2.com/wum/download/ .|
The tool merges the updated configuration files unless there are conflicts.
|You should manually merge the updated configuration files or use a tool like Puppet.|
|The tool handles backup and restore.||You should store backups with the custom configurations in your system, in case you have to restore them later.|
A subscription is mandatory to get WSO2 updates. A subscription can be one of the following types:
Free Trial Subscription: Provides all the functionality of a paid subscription for 14 days. The validity period can be extended.
Paid Subscription: Can discuss your specific requirements with a WSO2 accounts manager and set up a subscription via a channel. Here are the available channels:
Full: This is the default channel. It gives all updates including bug fixes, security fixes, and improvements.
Security: Gives security bug fixes only.
Premium: A custom channel that is only accessible to a particular customer (i.e., company). This channel gives access to specific updates as requested by the customer.
Important: WSO2 has decided to deprecate the Security and Premium channels, therefore the Full channel will be the only channel in operation disseminating updates.
