You should have also received an email with your scheduled migration date.
In this article we will discuss the steps for this migration and how it affects you and your deployment.
IMPORTANT: During the migration, you will be unable to access your deployment. If you attempt to login, you will be greeted by a message stating that the migration is in progress. During that time, your B2B Portal (if applicable) will be in Maintenance Mode and any customers will not be able to access the site. We expect the total downtime to be under 1 hour.
For all clients, we strongly recommend that you inform all staff of this migration and how your deployment will be inaccessible for a period of time. If applicable, please inform customers of you B2B Portal that there is a scheduled maintenance.
