Suggestions for upgrade

If given permission, Micro Focus informs you when your server and agents are eligible for upgrade.

When upgrade eligibility is detected, in the dashboard at the top of the Deployment Automation page you will see a message indicator image. Click this to see the upgrade suggestions for your server, agent, and plugin versions. Suggestions are shown in an overlay in separate sections as follows:
