Chapter 3. Product Certification Lifecycle

Red Hat OpenStack Certification is granted on a specific major release of RHOSP and is compatible with all subsequent updates to that major release.

Partners may have access to the pre-released software and may begin their engagement with Red Hat OpenStack Certification team before Red Hat software is generally available to customers, to expedite the process. However, final tests must be conducted on the generally available (GA) packages and containers.

3.1. Recertification Of Products

Partners must recertify their product in the following cases:

  • On every major RHOSP release, which correspond to upstream OpenStack releases every 6 months
  • On major functionality changes in their product(s)/component(s) such that the changes warrant recertification. In such cases, the decision to recertify lies solely with the Partner.
