    The monthly production release is automatically pushed for the campusM Web App and Web View, App Manager, Cloud Services and Oracle Business intelligence. Customers are still required to request Native App releases through Salesforce.

    *Automated Native App Updates – Making it easy to deliver the best app experiences to your users.

    We are defining the following releases as automated updates:

    • January 2021
    • May 2021
    • September 2021

    To make this as quick and easy for you, we will automatically submit your apps to the App Store/Play Store for review and approval. On approval by the app stores, and unless we hear otherwise from you through Salesforce, we will release the app to your end-users.

    Release Timeline

    The campusM solution is updated on a monthly basis. Updates include enhancements or issue fixes in one or more of the product components: App Manager, Native apps, Web Portal, and Web Services.

    To minimize disruption for campusM users, the release is timed to occur outside of business hours for each region during the general Ex Libris maintenance window (Ex Libris maintenance window is Saturday 20:00 till Sunday 06:00, Datacenter Time). The release is performed seamlessly, with no planned downtime or degradation to the service, and takes approximately two hours to complete. The release window for each region is:
