eRA Information: Ext-UAT and Commons Demo Environment Will be Unavailable Tuesday, January 10, 2017

Friday, January 6, 2017

The External User Acceptance Test (Ext-UAT) and the Commons Demo environment is scheduled to be offline Tuesday, January 10, 2017 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. ET in preparation for the winter system-wide software release. As part of our standard practice before each quarterly software release, we update the Ext-UAT and Commons Demo environments with the changes that will take place in production.

These changes will be implemented in production starting on Wednesday, January 18, 9 p.m. ET and ending no later than 7 a.m. ET on Thursday, January 19.

NOTE: Please be reminded this release has been moved up a day earlier than scheduled. The date was moved to ensure functionality will be available for users on Thursday, the day before Inauguration Day.

We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.

Please note that this process will not affect the production environment.
