  • Having a customization uploaded WILL CAUSE THE APPLICATION POOL TO RECYCLE and drop and front-end business processes running. Please inform your staff prior to having customizations loaded.
  • If this is being loaded into production, we need verification that it was tested in a non-production environment. If it has not been loaded and tested in non-production environment, please provide an explanation why this was not loaded so Research Development & Operations (RDO) can review possible effect on your production environment.Please ensure all customizations are first loaded and tested in the Staging environment before having them loaded in the Production database.
