Platform release process
In order to minimize disruption to Databricks users, releases are deployed on a regular cadence. During a deployment, Databricks services may be temporarily disrupted.
Release deployments are scheduled outside of normal business hours for the region in which they occur.
There are multiple types of notifications that appear before a deployment starts, depending on your deployment model.
The following sections highlight the most common methods.
Before a deployment begins, the Databricks Status Page is updated to indicate the impacted regions.
When a deployment ends, the Databricks Status Page is updated to show normal operation.
Status Page automatic notification
If you have subscribed to automatic notifications, you will receive an alert before a deployment begins, and then a second alert when the deployment has concluded. These can be via email or webhook, depending on the subscription type you have configured.
Example email notification
The following is an example email notification that is sent to subscribers when a scheduled deployment begins.
