The purpose of the Tricentis Tosca Testsuite product lifecycle is to help you plan or prepare your maintenance and support requirements accordingly.
The information on supported versions can be found in the Tosca Testsuite lifecycle.
The Tricentis Tosca Testsuite lifecycle is inspired by customers' needs for new technical capabilities and constantly evolving technologies.
This includes both enhancements to existing products and migrations to newer platforms.
As soon as Tricentis releases a new version, an announcement is made on the Support Portal and the Tosca Testsuite lifecycle is updated to include the specific dates for End of Standard Support and End of Life.
The above-mentioned phases do not apply to any Software as a Service based products which provide ongoing access to the latest version, provided that your subscription is active.
Every year Tricentis releases 4 Tosca Testsuite versions.
Major and minor Tosca Testsuite releases are supported and maintained for a term of 18 months upon their general availability. During the Standard Support Phase Tricentis will provide maintenance in the form of patches. Tricentis determines the kind of maintenance that is required to resolve issues regarding the product. Tricentis customers may be required to perform upgrades to a patch in order to obtain continued maintenance. Support for patches end with the End of Life date of the corresponding minor or major Tosca version. Tricentis guarantees the support of new browser versions for Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Microsoft Internet Explorer, new Java versions and new .Net versions, provided along with Tosca Testsuite patches during the term of the Standard Support Phase, and where feasible from a technical point of view.
After a period of 18 months, product releases reach their End of Standard Support date and enter the Extended Support Phase which lasts another 18 months. During this phase technical support continues, but Tricentis will not provide any patches.
The aim of the Extended Support Phase is to provide customers with smooth upgrades to the latest, and - from a technical perspective - most efficient Tosca Testsuite versions. Security issues will be fixed by means of hotfixes, and in accordance with the current maintenance baseline.
The maintenance baseline is defined by the latest patch for the corresponding Tosca release. Any occurring security issues could be related to publicly identified security vulnerabilities, other security vulnerabilities, or Microsoft's publicly released security updates.
As soon as the major or minor Tosca Testsuite version's End of Life date has been reached, customers may continue to use the product in accordance with the terms of the product licensing agreements, but with limited support options.
Furthermore, Tricentis will not provide any patches or hotfixes.
Please note that the Knowledge Base and other online resources may contain some information on the major Tosca Testsuite version that is no longer up-to-date, but this information won't be updated for outdated versions.
