While the platform update is taking place, no new executions of pipelines may take place.
Only Ultra pipelines will continue to run and process incoming requests as before.

We also encountered error not existent before the release.
the $original reference in on of our snaps is now not recognized

This is affecting Productions Pipelines.

Even our ultra task had the same error message. Thats why i want to check here as normally Ultra should not be impacted.

I checked with Development and they are not aware of any issues with Ultra during the upgrade. They recommend you submit a bug.

We did it 3 days ago, but so far no update. I don’t know why the support is so slow to figure out the issue. Request # 29867

This is a reminder that all Snaplexes will be automatically updated to the latest version (4.17) on Saturday, June 15, 2019 at 9:00 PM PT (Sunday, June 16, 2019 at 4:00 AM GMT). No action is required if you have already updated your Snaplexes to the latest version.
