One Identity Safeguard for Privileged Passwords 6.9 - Appliance Setup Guide

Long Term Support (LTS) and Feature Releases

Releases use the following version designations:

  • Long Term Support (LTS) Releases: The first digit identifies the release and the second is a zero (for example, 6.0 LTS).
  • Maintenance LTS Releases: A third digit is added followed by LTS (for example, 6.0.6 LTS).
  • Feature Releases: The Feature Releases version numbers are two digits (for example, 6.6).

Customers choose between two paths for receiving releases: Long Term Support (LTS) Release or Feature Release. See the following table for details.

Table 6: Comparison of Long Term Support (LTS) Release and Feature Release
  Long Term Support (LTS) Release Feature Release
Release frequency

Frequency: Typically, every 2 years

Scope: Includes new features, resolved issues and security updates

Versioning: The first digit identifies the LTS and the second digit is a 0 (for example, 6.0 LTS, 7.0 LTS, and so on).

Frequency: Typically, every 3 months

Scope: Includes the latest features, resolved issues, and other updates, such as security patches for the OS

Versioning: The first digit identifies the LTS and the second digit is a number identifying the Feature Release (for example, 6.6, 6.7, and so on).

Maintenance Release

Frequency:Typically, every 3 months during full support

Scope: Includes critical resolved issues

Versioning: A third digit designates the maintenance LTS Release (for example, 6.0.6 LTS).

Frequency:Only for highly critical issues

Scope: Includes highly critical resolved issues

Versioning: A third digit designates the maintenance Feature Release (for example, 6.6.1).

Support

Support extends typically 3 years after the original publication date or until the next LTS is published (whichever date is later).

Support extends typically 6 months after the original publication date or until the next feature or LTS Release is published (whichever date is later).

Release details can be found at Product Life Cycle.

CAUTION: Downgrading from the latest Feature Release, even to an LTS release, voids support for SPP.

One Identity strongly recommends always installing the latest revision of the release path you use (Long Term Support path or Feature Release path).

Moving between LTS and Feature Release versions

You can move from an LTS version (for example, 6.0.7 LTS) to the same feature version (6.7) and then patch to a later feature version. After that, you can patch from the minimum version for the patch, typically N-3. If you move from an LTS version to a feature version, you will receive a warning like the following which informs you that you will only be able to apply a Feature Release until the next LTS Release:

Warning: You are patching to a Feature Release from an LTS Release. If you apply this update, you will not be able to upgrade to a non-Feature Release until the next LTS major release version is available. See the Administration Guide for details.

You cannot move from a Feature Release to LTS Release. For example, you cannot move from 6.7 to 6.0.7 LTS. You have to keep upgrading with each new Feature Release until the next LTS Release version is published. For this example, you would wait until 7.0 LTS is available.

Patching

You can only patch from a major version. For example, if you have version 6.6 and want to patch to 7.7, you must patch to 7.0 LTS and then apply 7.7.

An LTS major version of Safeguard for Privileged Passwords (SPP) will only work with the same LTS major version of Safeguard for Privileged Sessions (SPS). For the best experience, it is recommended you use the latest supported version.
