Blackboard Learn UNAVAILABLE for AWS Maintenance - WAS NOT COMPLETED BY AWS

June 19, 2019 Update from Blackboard Support:
Due to unforeseen circumstances, AWS has cancelled the upgrade to Postgres 9.6.11 for all of their clients at this time. More details will follow when we have more information.


The Blackboard Learn System will be unavailable for a few minutes on Tuesday, June 18, 2019 between 3-3:30 a.m. CDT for a Postgres database upgrade. This is an automatic upgrade performed by AWS (Amazon Web Services - the cloud computing service that hosts Blackboard Learn SaaS environments) to apply a critical security patch to upgrade the Postgres database from version 9.6.9 to version 9.6.11. It is recommended that end-users do not perform critical work (create content, take tests, submit assignments, grade, etc.) during this maintenance period.

Note: This was originally schedule for Tuesday, June 11, 2019 between 3-3:30 a.m. CDT; however AWS did NOT perform the maintenance and rescheduled it for June 18, 2019.

Date of Maintenance: 
Tuesday, June 18, 2019 - 3:00am to 3:30am
