Upgrade Syskit Point

This article explains how to upgrade Syskit Point to the latest version available.

Since Syskit Point frequently gets new features, we highly recommend deploying the latest version to use its maximum potential.

Please note! This article describes Syskit Point upgrades for Syskit Point Data Center customers only.

Checking for Updates

Syskit Point automatically checks for updates every day, outside working hours.

Upgrade banner is displayed at the bottom of the Home screen to all users signed into the Syskit Point web app in case there is a new Syskit Point version detected, which comes with one or several changes from the following categories:

  • Major features

    • The new version of Syskit Point comes with new reports, actions, policies, etc., or significant improvements in existing features.

    • This is usually reflected by changing the 2nd number in Syskit Point version; for example, old version is 2024.1.44, and new version is 2024.2.45.

  • Hotfixes

    • Hotfix version is released in order to remedy critical issues in Syskit Point or breaking changes coming from the Microsoft 365 platform.

    • Expect the third number in the Syskit Point version to change; for example, the old version is 2024.1.44, and the new version is 2024.1.45.

  • Security Updates

    • A new version of Syskit Point resolves security vulnerabilities found in 3rd party dependencies or Syskit Point codebase itself.

    • Here, you can also expect the third number in the Syskit Point version to change; for example, the old version is 2024.1.46, and the new version is 2024.1.47.

Please note! The upgrade banner will not show in the case of Syskit Point releases with new versions containing minor changes in functionality or non-critical fixes.
