Grouped rollout of updates

Grouped rollout of updates

Postby SamK » November 8th, 2019, 8:18 am

I was wondering what your thoughts are on the best way to selectively rollout updates? That is to say; currently when I upload a new version, all clients start updating. I'd like to add a mechanism to do this grouped, to manage possible bugs better and lesser the load on our servers.

This could be done by using a pre-selection mechanism in our software that checks whether it's up for updating, then runs the wyupdater (everything is headless by the way).

But perhaps you have another suggestion?

I am also interested to know – if it possible to implement - Grouped rollout of updates.

Hey all,

We are rolling this out now too. We are going a similarish; set the update server URL to an endpoint we control instead of S3, and then have the server selectively send the right file.

We are doing this in order to have a release, beta, and test channels, as well as deprecate our XP version while still leaving the possibility for updates to it.

If you have any questions, let me know
