Function documentationMaintenance Cycles in QGM


The lifecycle of a maintenance project is divided into maintenance cycles (MC). When a maintenance cycle comes to an end, you can start a new maintenance cycle, so that you can continue to use the maintenance project for further software changes.


Within one maintenance cycle, all software corrections must be tested and implemented. At the end of the maintenance cycle, corrections are imported into the production system. Open changes, open transport requests, and transport requests which have not been imported to production systems will be moved to the new maintenance cycle. The switch from an old maintenance cycle to a new one is safeguarded by the Deploy to Scope Q-Gate.
