Installation and steps to use the Patch Finder

By | August 24, 2021

In the each new levels of patch, Sage do bring the new changes and hot fixes that needs to be identified and needs to be monitored that might hamper the existing customization when the upgrade patch is executed.

To avoid this we should need to understand what new changes or hot fixes sage has deployed in the newer patch level. According if that clashes with the existing customization then we need to handle it prior deploying the patch.

When the each new version is released the Sage do provide release notes that needs to gone through. But rather than going through each patch level, now sage has provided the new independent utility as Patch finder.

The Patch finder is the new component present in the installable which needs to be installed by the below steps:

There is the zip file which holds the patch finder exe as shown below:
