PPSR release management
AFSA uses a six monthly Release Management Cycle (RMC) to implement enhancements and fix defects in the PPSR. Production releases generally occur in April and October, but may vary depending on the scope of the release.
Prioritisation of enhancements and defect remedy is determined by AFSA in consultation with industry, PPS Operations and Stakeholder forum members.
Industry Integration Period
Major releases are deployed into Discovery prior to Production. The new release is made available at least two weeks prior to Production release to enable clients to familiarise themselves with the new functionality.
If you find functionality or performance issues in Discovery complete the 'PPSR Incident Report Form' and email it to AFSA's National Service Centre (NSC) at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Industry is encouraged to provide feedback on the RMC and PPSR through their peak bodies or by email directly to AFSA. For more information, see PPSR enhancements.
If a release requires changes to the B2G WSDL, associated documentation will be made available. In addition, an extended Industry Integration Period will be provided to allow adequate build and testing of B2G solutions.
