System Update Sets

An Update Set is a group of customizations that can be moved from one instance to another.

Update sets allow administrators to group a series of changes into a named set and then move them as a unit to other systems. In most cases, Update Sets allow customizations to be developed in a development instance, moved to a test instance, and then applied to a production instance.

Note: Properties that are tagged as Private are excluded from Update Sets. Keeping system properties private prevents settings in one instance from overwriting values in another instance. For example, you may not want a system property in a production instance to use a particular value from a development instance. Add a property using sys_properties.list.

Before using Update Sets, review the Getting Started with Update Sets page.
