If you’re not already testing your Epicor Cloud ERP system in Pilot, you should be. There are just two weeks left to test Epicor Cloud ERP 10.2.500 changes in your Pilot environment. The Epicor Live (Production) environment upgraded to 10.2.500 will take place on October 12 – 13, 2019.
Testing Epicor Cloud ERP 10.2.500 In Pilot
Epicor upgraded customer Pilot systems September 13 – 14. This ensured customers would have time to explore the updates in 10.2.500 without affecting live data or transactions. As a best practice, please use this time to review and make any necessary changes to your Unique Business Components. This includes custom reports, BAQs, BPMs, User Interface customizations, etc. This testing will ensure everything continues to operate as expected after the update. Epicor will then move your Unique Business Components from Pilot to Production if you choose to opt-in*.
* Note: This is a change to the UBC process. Epicor moved UBCs files automatically in 10.2.400 and earlier unless you opted-out by requesting that they not be moved. In 10.2.500 and going forward, Epicor will only move your modified UBC files if you choose to opt-in by submitting an EpicCare ticket.
