(As a Marketplace partner for many years, I should really know this by now…but here we are).
For Server/DC apps , the Marketplace portal allows selection of compatible host product versions:
Patch releases are automatically compatible: as a vendor I only need to select
7.13.0 as being compatible, and when
7.13.3 etc. are later released, the app is automatically updated to indicate compatibility with these releases.
Minor versions require the vendor to manually opt-in to compatibility: when
7.14.0 is released (as it was recently), I have to manually update the above “Compatible to” selection.
I subscribe to the announcements topics here on CDAC, so I’m notified when new EAP releases become available, and we do test our apps as early as possible with these new releases.
However there seems to be no notification (at least that I’m aware of) for when a version actually becomes available for selection in the “Compatible to” list. So unless we regularly check, we sometimes receive “Add-on Update Requests” from our customers, asking us to upgrade our app to be compatible with the latest version.
We would like to avoid having our customers prompt us to go and update the compatibility of our apps.
Is there somewhere/somehow we can be notified when a new “Compatible to” version is available for selection in the marketplace portal?
