Identity Cloud

Release notes


ForgeRock continuously provides GA releases to Identity Cloud to introduce new features, fix known issues, and address security issues.

These GA releases are delivered through release channels:

Release channels

Rapid channel

If you have a sandbox environment, a continuous stream of the newest features and fixes are deployed there, as soon as they are ready for GA release. This lets you test and evaluate GA releases to make sure they are compatible with your Identity Cloud implementation. It also lets ForgeRock qualify and establish GA releases through cumulative usage and soak testing, typically over a 2-week period. When a GA release has been established, it is allocated to the regular channel and deployed into your development, staging, and production environments.

Regular channel (default)

Only established GA releases are deployed to your development, staging, and production environments. Typically, 2 weeks' worth of GA releases in the rapid channel are rolled up into one release to the regular channel, 2–4 weeks later[1].

ForgeRock applies critical hotfixes to all channels.
