This page describes process and provides instructions to release manager on how to release Apache Ignite

Following picture demonstrates release stages sequence.

Ignite Release Process

Table of contents

P0. Initializing

Release phases dates are discussed, as release manager during the first discussion. Release Manager should be PMC Member.

Moving scope freeze and code freeze dates maybe not the best option since a lot of contributors synchronize their efforts to make feature completed by particular moment.

Once release manager found, he/she can setup environment.

Prerequisites for release manager

0.1. Write access to Apache Ignite GIT & SVN repository (commiter role) -

0.2. Access to Team City Release tasks - If you don't have necessary rights ask for assigning on dev. list.

0.3.Your GPG key available in - Steps to add:

 Click here to expand...

Following setup is performed only once.  Check README.txt from This readme file contains some additional requirement and setup steps.

0.3.1. If you don’t have your Apache key set up, please see on how to generate a new key.

Steps to be followed:

  • Setup gpg home (optional) and configuration file (gpg.conf) according to the page.
  • Check version and settings using `gpg --version` (version >1.4.1, SHA512 is recommended).
  • Generate new key pair `gpg --gen-key` Parameters: RSA/4096/never expires/use your name and apache email/comment: `CODE SIGNING KEY`. Let's suppose generated key name is 612654F7.
  • Check preferences using `gpg --edit-key 612654F7` and sub-command `showpref`

0.3.2. Export key to Apache SVN. See section 'Create/Import your pgp secret key' in Readme.txt in

  • Make sure you have SVN client. You can install TortoiseSVN for convenience (don’t forget to select command line tools for having svn executable). Alternatively, you can install SVN package from

Steps to be followed:

gpg --list-sigs 612654F7 >> KEYS
gpg --armor --export 612654F7 >> KEYS

0.3.3. Export the key to a Public Key Server

To publish key follow instructions from

You may use

gpg --send-key 612654F7

alternatively, you

- can export key to an .asc file (gpg --armor --export 6F6F6F6F > key.asc)

- and submit the key file content manually to a public key server.

For example, at MIT server you can just paste asc file content to a text field and submit: to or to

P1. Scope development and implementation

P1.1 Implementation and Scope Discussion

Difference between this and the following phase: it is not possible to move in-progress tickets to a next release because branches not diverged.

New branch creation moment is not formal, and it can happen just before or simultaneously with scope freeze.  The important thing is announcing this moment and reminding contributors to cherry-pick commits to release branch.

P1.2 Implementation and Scope Finalization

Removing issues from the scope based on estimated dates of completion, importance to release and on community discussion. Private discussion between contributors is possible, but it is recommended to discuss features in public to allow all community members to share their arguments and concerns.

The first step to be done to enter scope finalization phase it to create a branch in Ignite code base (origin). This moment be precisely the same as the start of P1.1 

1.2.1. Create release branch, e.g ignite-2.8, push it to the ASF repository. (optional) consider creating PR for release, having PR is convenient because GitHub will notify you about commits to the branch.

1.2.2. Run TC tests (on the appropriate branch), use

1.2.3. Estimate state of TC, check failures history (if any).

1.2.4. Create scheduled build triggers for daily Run All (Nightly) run. Usually, triggers are set up using Apache Ignite TeamCity Bot (triggering of builds there depends on agent availability). Use an intellectual trigger to trigger release branch adaptively, or ask on the dev. list to add.

1.2.5. Create/schedule the nightly release build triggering – Releases Apache Ignite Nightly (may require TC permissions).

End of this phase is scope freeze.  

P2. Rampdown

This phase is some time to complete the implementation of features from the initial scope. In parallel with implementation, some less essential fixes and features are moved to the next release. 

End of ramp-down is code freeze. Code freeze is based on dates, but the actual time of freeze is determined by announcing.

P3. Stabilization

During the stabilization phase, only blockers are accepted. Including anything to the release should be approved by the release manager for each commit.

Note blockers defined here not as any critical bug, but

  • an issue in the product which makes product unstable or non-functioning
  • performance drop has proven by a benchmark
  • a security issue, or
  • a regression of existing features.

P4. Vote preparation (building release candidate)

P4-Prepare RC candidate

Once all changes are applied, it is possible to prepare a release candidate. It is possilbe to build several release candidates without starting a vote. First RCs can have part of changes scheduled for release.

4.0. Prepare Release Notes

4.0.1. Collect Release Notes (this action is manual now). Consider preparing HTML file in addition to text for future step 6.3.6. Check all completed tickets from the release page. Ticket may or may not have release notes, and this depends on if it is reasonable to mention change for users.

4.0.2. Optionally you may ask for a review of resulting release notes on the list.

4.0.3. Update RELEASE_NOTES.txt and commit Release Notes changes into master and a release branch.

4.1 Ensure Documentation Readiness and Accouncement Blog Post Activity

  • Check that Ignite technical documentation and APIs are fully ready for the release. Documentation has to be released together and on the same day with the rest of the release artifacts (binaries, Docker images, etc.) once the vote passes.

  • Confirm that there is a community member who will be working on an announcement blog post for to cover major changes coming in the version. Ideally, the blog post should be published and added into an announcement email the same day we'll be releasing release artifacts (binaries, documentation, etc.). That's an example of an Ignite announcement article.

4.2 Update versions and year for release

4.2.1. Update release branch version in maven poms and assembly

Update version in the release branch (execute the script from Ignite project root directory, you can use WSL or GitBash on Windows): 

./scripts/ 2.7.6

 and commit changes. This step is essential for release because later the source code will be published into SVN. Version update is required to be committed before RC building.

4.2.2. Update year in copyright messages

 Double-check that year in copyright messages is correct. If the release is minor and based on an older branch, this branch can contain an outdated value of the year. Fix if needed. Example commit of updating year.

 Following step is not actual since 2.8, there is the feature for an auto-generating year: Update copyright year manually in IgniteVersionUtils

4.2.3. Update DEB & RPM package version

Version of packages update is not automated since it requires to add verison to history to update it. Update is more or less similar to this commit Update packaging/deb/changelog, add similar lines to the top of the files (version, comment, mainteiner, date):

apache-ignite (2.7.6-1) unstable; urgency=low

  * Updated Apache Ignite to version 2.7.6

 -- Petr Ivanov <>  Wed, 20 Aug 2019 20:58:44 +0300

Check dates are correct, and version is postfixed with '-1' - it is package version number, it is required by format Update packaging/rpm/apache-ignite.spec, change current version; insert new line to changes log:

Name:             apache-ignite
Version:          2.7.6 

and add lines similar to following after change log

* Fri 20 Aug 2019 Peter Ivanov <> - 2.7.6-1
- Updated Apache Ignite to version 2.7.6

Make sure dates are correct, add package build number, '-1' at the end of package version. (optional) ask for review on the list. Commit package version changes into master and a release branch.

4.3. Prepare RC on Teamcity

4.3.1. Run TC Main Release Build

Run [RELEASES] Apache Ignite / Main [1] Release Build for ignite-x.y or for ignite-x.y.z branch. You will need to enter version number (value if x.y.0 or x.y.z), and specify release candidate number. For testing purposes, it is recommended to use rc0. You may several times re-build same rc- number.

4.3.2. Download and check release build

Download and unzip release archive. It can be found at "Artifacts" tab on build page. Example:

 Click here to expand...

~/download:[]$ unzip

Write down build number (Teamcity identification of builds, usually starts from # symbol). This number will be re-used in future steps.

Do some checks related to release (full list of check to be done can be found in section 5.1):

  • Validate version of Ignite, RC number, and packages versions (from 'packages' folder) are correct.
  • Unpack build provided with RC: svn/vote/apache-ignite-{$version} . Run Ignite node from resulting apache-ignite-{$version}-bin/bin folder.
  • Validate node starts, correct version, and copyright messages produced.

4.4. Sign and deploy RC using vote preparation scripts

Run vote scripts to prepare RC before voting. You may skip steps 4.4.1 & step 4.4.2 in case you want to run some testing of release. In case release build was made for testing-only purposes, you can go to step 4.4.3 in this section.

4.4.1. Run script to create VCS tag in git 

Run script vote_1[git]  Example of script output:

 Click here to expand...
$ ./vote_1\[git\]

Please check results at

Please, check corresponding git tag is created and is available in ASF repository:;a=tags

4.4.2. Create & close (publish) staging repository

Note: If you've already uploaded staging, you should remove it from nexus -

Run script ./vote_2\[mvn\]\[pgp\]  Example of script output:

 Click here to expand...
$ ./vote_2\[mvn\]\[pgp\] 
Preparing vote 2.7.0-rc0
Uploading ./org/apache/ignite/ignite-spark (1 of 53).
Uploading ./org/apache/ignite/ignite-clients (2 of 53).

Uploading ./org/apache/ignite/ignite-mqtt (53 of 53).
Maven staging should be created
Please check results at
Don't forget to close staging with proper comment

Go to Nexus UI, log in using Apache credentials and close repository.

Provide some comment for closing repository, e.g. `Repository for Apache Ignite 2.7.6 - RC0`. 

Close is a heavy background process, which makes repository visible for others.  After some time, check if the repository closed successfully and visible.

Once repository is closed, write down a link to content, e.g. This link is useful for vote thread and sharing with others, who is going to test RC.

4.4.3. Prepare signed distribution for SVN Sign DEB/RPM packages

Pre-build packages can be found at 'release-2.7.6-rc0\packages' folder of release candidate archive. 

Building packages locally supported only on Linux, WSL not supported. Steps to build from scratch (optionally):

 Click here to expand...

Note: The following script is locale-specific. You should execute it on the en locale

Run script ./vote_3_step_1\[packages\]\[optional\] . Example of output: 

$ ./vote_3_step_1\[packages\]\[optional\] 

dpkg-deb: building package 'apache-ignite' in '../apache-ignite_2.7.0-1_all.deb'.
copied '/tmp/tmp.rEePHrMMWU/apache-ignite_2.7.0-1_all.deb' -> '/home/dragon/download/release/packaging/apache-ignite_2.7.0-1_all.deb'
удалён '/tmp/tmp.rEePHrMMWU/apache-ignite_2.7.0-1_all.deb'
Removing temporary work directories: /tmp/tmp.rEePHrMMWU 

=== Run time: 0h:00m:36s ===

renamed 'packaging/apache-ignite_2.7.0-1_all.deb' -> 'packaging/pkg/apache-ignite_2.7.0-1_all.deb'

Build script will sign artifacts automatically (in case of build locally), but TC pre-build packages need to be signed by release manager key. 

Find your public key ID by running

gpg --list-keys

Key Id will look like as 16 hexadecimal, e.g., 612654F7; it is the same value from step 0.3.2.

Sing RPM pre-build package by command

rpm --define "_gpg_name 612654F7" --addsign packages/pkg/*.rpm 

Enter pass phrase:
Pass phrase is good.

Sign DEB pre-build package by command

dpkg-sig -k 612654F7 --sign builder packages/pkg/*.deb

Processing packages/pkg/apache-ignite_2.7.5-1_all.deb... 
You need a passphrase to unlock the secret key for
user: "Apache User (CODE SIGNING KEY) <>"
4096-bit RSA key, ID 612654F7, created 2019-03-19

Signed deb packages/pkg/apache-ignite_2.7.5-1_all.deb

You can validate that file modification time was changed after singing. Sign artfacts

Run script vote_3_step_2[pgp] . Example of script output

Artifacts should be signed
Please check results at ./svn/vote
Each file should have corresponding *.asc file

NOTE: Package files are not signed because they
are meant to be stored in Bintray

Please check results at ./svn/vote. Optionally you may also check hash/sign using Deploy artfacts to SVN

Run script vote_3_step_3[svn] This script will upload your local artifacts to a a development area under e.g. which is used for staging releases candidates.

Each ASF committer has a write access to this area – WHERE CAN I STAGE A RELEASE CANDIDATE?

4.5 Run additional TC steps

4.5.1. Verify file changes using TeamCity

There is TC task for generating report containing difference comparing current release with previous.

You should run it and do sanity check for a changed files.

To start the build you need to specify current (staging) version and released version of Apache Ignite. See "Artifacts" tab to get task results. Example:

 Click here to expand...

For 2.7 release "apache-ignite-hadoop" removed and some new dependencies introduced for a benchmarks.

4.5.2. Prepare NuGet staging

Using Teamcity build number from step 4.2.1, run

This will produce .nupkg files as build artifcats, and push the packages to for easier testing.

Check results at myget UI,

4.5.3. Run automated release check step on TC

Run '[3] Apache Ignite Release Vote | Check RC'

This step will validate hashes, Javadoc, build from sources, licenses. So it it required to run it to simplify/skip some local checks from section 5.1.

 Click here to expand...

4.6  Sending Release For Vote

After the community agrees that the codebase is ready for a release, release manager should send the release for a vote.

The email subject should be "[VOTE] Release Apache Ignite <version> <rc>", e.g. "[VOTE] Release Apache Ignite 2.7.5 RC4". 

Vote email should include reference that vote is formal and votes meaning for +1,0,-1.

Here is the sample email:

 Click here to expand...
Dear Community,

I have uploaded release candidate to
The following staging can be used for testing:
This is the second maintenance release for 2.7.x with a number of fixes.
Tag name is 2.7.6-rc1:;a=tag;h=refs/tags/2.7.6-rc1
2.7.6 changes:
 * Ignite work directory is now set to the current user's home directory by default, native persistence files will not be stored in the Temp directory anymore
 * Fixed a bug that caused a SELECT query with an equality predicate on a part of the primary compound key to return a single row even if the query matched multiple rows
 * Fixed an issue that could cause data corruption during checkpointing
 * Fixed an issue where a row size was calculated incorrectly for shared cache groups, which caused a tree corruption
 * Reduced java heap footprint by optimizing GridDhtPartitionsFullMessage maps in exchange history
 * .NET: Native persistence now works with a custom affinity function
 * Fixed an issue where an outdated node with a destroyed cache caused the cluster to hang
 * Fixed a bug that made it impossible to change the inline_size property of an existing index after it was dropped and recreated with a different value
RELEASE NOTES:;a=blob;f=RELEASE_NOTES.txt;hb=ignite-2.7.6
Complete list of resolved issues: 
The vote is formal, see voting guidelines
+1 - to accept Apache Ignite 2.7.6-rc1
0 - don't care either way
-1 - DO NOT accept Apache Ignite Ignite 2.7.6-rc1 (explain why)
See notes on how to verify release here
This vote will be open for at least 3 days till Sun Aug 25, 18:00 UTC.

Examples of Voting threads Vote on 2.7.5; Vote on 2.7.0

Optionally you can create a separate discussion for questions related to RC: Discussion on 2.7.5

P5. Voting on Release and Release Verification

All community members are encouraged to verify release. PMC members have a binding vote, but each vote matters.

5.1 Release Candidate Verification

The following list are steps, which can be done by each member, see also

It is not a complete list, community members can test any module or feature of the product.

  • Check that all JIRA issues for the specific version are Closed (example JQL: `project = IGNITE AND fixVersion <= 1.7 AND status != closed`).

    curl "!=+closed+AND+fixVersion<=1.7&fields=summary" | grep '"total":0,"issues":\[\]'

  • Check that sha1 & md5 checksum is correct. 

    sha1sum -c *.sha1
    md5sum -c *.md5
  • Check that signature is correct.

    gpg --verify-files *.asc
  • Check that version is correct.
  • Check licenses from the source code.

    mvn clean validate -DskipTests=true -P check-licenses
  • Build the binary releases from the source code.

    mvn clean package -DskipTests -Dignite.edition=hadoop
    mvn clean package -DskipTests
  • Build Ignite.NET binaries and NuGet packages

    cd modules\platforms\dotnet
    build -skipJava
  • Do some trivial checks, e.g. start local topology, run several examples from binaries gained at previous step. Unpacked binaries can be found at sources/target/release-package

See also Incubator Release Checklist for more checks.

5.2 Voting process

In case there is -1 vote present (it is not a veto, even if it was casted by PMC), release manager has ultimate rigth to cancel vote immediately to fix related issues. 

Usually +1 means that community member agrees that current release is better with previous.

Usually with +1 member shares which checks were done.

Vote should be open for at least 72hours. In case insufficient votes are available vote can be kept open as long as it needed without additional announce. But in this case release manager has option to close the vote as unsuccessfull in case time is out. 

Whenever consensus cannot be reached, standard Apache Voting Process will be used to reach a solution.

P6. Release

6.1. Closing Vote

Send an email with subject "[RESULT] <vote subject>" ("[RESULT] [VOTE] Release Apache Ignite <version> (<rc>)") and provide vote results: if it passes or not, provide voting details. 

For example, "[RESULT] [VOTE] Release Apache Ignite 2.7.5 (RC1)" and body similar to 2.7.5 vote result, 2.7.0 vote result . See also other example:

In case vote is unsuccessful or closed by release manager, prepare new release candidate with fixes starting from step 4.2

6.2. Run Release scripts

In case vote was sucessfull, run release* scripts from release candidate local home from step 4.2.1.

6.2.1. Move binaries

Run release_1[svn] (Note: Only PMC members have write access to the release repository). Example of output

 Click here to expand...
$ ./release_1\[svn\]

# Releasing 2.7.5-rc4 :: Binaries #
Committing transaction...
Committed revision 34469.

Artifacts should be moved to Apache Ignite's release site
Please check results at:
 * binaries:

Manual alternative of this script is move release to<version>  

svn mv<version><rc><version> -m "Release <version>"

Result should be available at

Please check results at:
* binaries:{version

There can be some sync lag with moving files and availability at 

6.2.2. Upload packages to bintray

During running script you will be asked for bintray credentials to upload. Ask Infra to provide

Run script release_2[bintray], example of output

This step can be done manually :

Create Release tag from RC tag

git tag -a <version> -m "<version>"
git push origin <version>

Please check results at;a=tags

6.3. Manual release steps

6.3.1. Release staging repository

Release maven staging (

Go to Nexus UI, login using Apache credentials and release repository for accepted release candidate. You can release it by pressing the Release button (provided that you have successfully closed the staging repository).

This will move the components into the release repository of OSSRH where it will be synced to the Central Repository (see also

The sync into Maven Central central staging from occurs every 4 hours. There is a separate hourly schedule that runs which pushes from staging to the other central machines, and then updates the indexes.

  1. If release step for staging was successful you can access artifacts using service repository:
  2. Once repository is synced you can see result in 
  3. With some delay artifact will be available on the site

6.3.2. Update sources snapshot version in the master branch

Execute the script from Ignite project root directory, this will update version in the master branch : 

./scripts/ 2.9.0-SNAPSHOT

 and commit changes. This step is not required if minor release was issued,e.g. 2.7.5 Update sources snapshot version in the ignite-extensions repository

The dependency of ignite-extensions must be updated according to the new version in the master branch.

See the example below:

IGNITE-13993 - Getting issue details... STATUS

6.3.4. Publish technical documentation

Publish the technical documentation on the website: How to Document - Publishing to the website

6.3.5. Update references to API docs on the website, SEO updates

Update the latest APIs doc reference on

  1. Update the new version number on the .htaccess file: RewriteRule ^releases/latest/(.*)$ /releases/2.9.0/$1 [L]
  2. Add the following tag to all .html files: <link rel="canonicalhref="" />
  3. Use the script that automates the update or contact Mauricio Stekl ( who can assist with this step.
  4. Commit changes to the GIT.

This script do some Search engine optimization (SEOupdates to new/old .html files, like adding NOINDEX metatag to older version; add canonical URL to latest docs; and add GA code.  

6.3.6. Prepare HTML release notes from text release notes

Checkout GIT repository for Apache Ignite site:

Just copy-paste latest release notes from previous release, replace text formatting with headers, lists items.

Place these notes to corresponding release folder, for example releases/2.7.5. If folder is absent, check results of step 6.2.3.

Commit and push changes. File should be available on the site automatically. 

Once the new release is published to wait a day or so for mirrors to catch up. 

After the release was propagated across all the mirrors, update both "Source Releases" and "Binary Releases" tables on the page:

  • Add a reference to the new release pointing out to Make sure to use [preferred]/[distdir] as part of the URL.
  • Mark the new release as the latest one.
  • Change the previous latest release record to link to server. 
  • Add references to the release notes, API and technical documentations.

6.3.8. Update version for generating users advices to update

Find `latest` text file in GIT repository for Apache Ignite site.

Update Ignite version in this file. Commit changes and check result at

6.3.9. Mark JIRA version as released

Go to JIRA project administration, select Apache Ignite, select Versions, select appropriate version and select Actions->Release.

6.3.10. Prepare docker image

This section Intented for preparing docker image for

Prerequisite: Docker installed. For example, for Windows you can download You may need to register at docker hub.  

Dockerfile is available at

Credentials can be found in SVN (PMC only)

You can get binary distribution from vote folder of the release candidate.

Follow instructions from README file

To build image run following command (insert correct release number):

docker build . -t apacheignite/ignite:2.7.5 -t apacheignite/ignite:latest

This build take distribution from some folder named like apache-ignite*

You can validate image created by calling

docker images

Run image to check it works well:

docker run -it --rm --name apache-ignite <IMAGE>

To publish image run

docker login


docker push apacheignite/ignite:2.7.5
docker push apacheignite/ignite:latest

Check results at

6.3.11. GCE & AWS virtual machines AWS deployment

In addition, update the links to the images on the following documentation pages whenever is needed: GCE deployment

Todo: add description of steps ?

Prepare the cloud images and update links to them here

6.3.12. Delete previous release from dist and dev SVN directories

Delete previous releases from, replace their download URLs by

Delete unsucessfull release candidates and packages (if any) from dev section of Apache SVN repository

6.3.13. Upload NuGet packages to

Retrieve all .nupkg files from build artifacts of step 4.5

Initial setup

You may need to install client tools for .NET (download file & add it to PATH). You can use nuget.exe 4.x version (because NuGet.exe 5.0 and later require .NET Framework 4.7.2 ).

It may be required to configure nuget.exe using NuGet.Config(XML) for using as default push source.

You can find configuration file under user home directory, for example, on Windows

cd %appdata%\Nuget
