Maintenance Release Policy

The ForgeRock Maintenance Release policy is aligned to the EOSL policy (ForgeRock End of Service Life (EOSL) Policy and EOSL Dates). Maintenance releases are provided on top of the most recent Minor version (Current Version). The contents of maintenance releases are decided entirely at ForgeRock's discretion, but typically include:

  • Fixes for critical and security issues
  • Maintenance release regressions
  • Customer reported issues
  • Fixes for non-critical issues backported based on their expected customer impact

For the Previous Version, we will not provide Maintenance releases, but will provide the following where appropriate:

  • Continued Security Advisories, including fixes for security issues
  • Individual patches for critical issues


Term Definition
Critical Issue A critical issue is one where the impact on a customer deployment could potentially be severe.
Non-Critical Issue A non-critical issue is one where the severity of the impact of the issue would be such that it could delay or inconvenience customers without putting their systems at risk of disruption.
Security Issue A security issue is one that meets the definition of ForgeRock's Security Policy. Security issues have four levels: Critical, High, Medium and Low; these levels are defined in the Security Policy.
End of Service Life (EOSL) The EOSL policy describes the different types of releases and the duration of support available: ForgeRock End of Service Life (EOSL) Policy and EOSL Dates.
Maintenance release regression A maintenance release regression represents a new issue that was introduced by a fix included in a maintenance release.
Patch A patch represents a fix to a specific issue or set of issues that is provided to a ForgeRock customer separately from a maintenance release.
Backport A backport is where an issue that has been fixed in a newer version of the product is made available in an older version of the product.
