This is the best choice for subscribers who want access to the most current features and bug fixes. Builds on this channel are high quality and fully tested. The Express channel will closely follow our hosted release cadence, initially shipping monthly (and occasionally, more than once a month if we release an urgent patch). As we deliver features incrementally, this build will sometimes include new features that are subject to change based on subscriber feedback.
We will fully support the current version on the Express channel, and one previous release. Subscribers who are running on versions prior to these two will receive best effort support and if they report problems with older versions will be asked to update.
The Express channel requires internet access. Due to the dynamic nature of the URLs accessed, we are unable to provide you with a comprehensive list. If you prefer Jama to remain isolated from the internet or have filtered access to the internet, please consider our Airgap solution.
Some subscribers in regulated industries need to validate each Jama release before it’s put into production; if this describes you—especially if validation takes longer than four weeks—the Standard channel is the best choice. This channel will include less frequent releases (typically, one or two per year) to give subscribers time to validate releases in a test environment before deploying them to production. From time to time we will also deploy critical fixes or security patches to this channel.
Each release will include a validation toolkit (purchased separately) that documents the automated and manual testing that Jama has conducted against the build, so that subscribers can more easily prove to auditors that the build is safe to deploy. New features will be enabled only on these builds when active development has been completed. We will support older releases on the standard channel for one year after release, just like our current on-premises releases.
The Standard channel requires internet access. Due to the dynamic nature of the URLs accessed, we are unable to provide you with a comprehensive list. If you prefer Jama to remain isolated from the internet or have filtered access to the internet, please consider our Airgap solution.
