This process is triggered when there are showstopper bugs that need to be deployed to production before the next release. Generally, a Jira ticket will be created that describes the showstopper bug.
Create a new hotfix branch
git checkout master git pull --rebase git checkout -b release/0.8.16-hotfix1 git push -u origin release/0.8.16-hotfix1
Configure the openboxes-release linked respository to point to the new branch so that commits/merges to this branch will be compiled and deployed to the OBNAVSTAGE server automatically.
- Review the hotfix ticket OBPIH-1234
Create a new branch for your hotfix
git checkout release/0.8.16-hotfix1 git pull --rebase git checkout -b OBPIH-1234
