Release Notifications

Upgrade Warning

Pyramid 2023 is a MAJOR update to previous versions of the platform. It contains numerous upgrades, adjustments, and fixes to existing capabilities.

As such, Pyramid strongly recommends that you back up the database repository of any current Pyramid instance before attempting any upgrade.

Separately, Pyramid strongly recommends fully testing the new release on a twin of your existing deployment with a duplicate version of your existing production content database repository before any upgrades are applied to production environments.

Support for Microsoft Internet Explorer  11 in 2023

As of Pyramid 2023, support for Microsoft Internet Explorer 11 is deprecated. Customers should use modern HTML5 browsers to consume Pyramid, including Chrome, Edge, Firefox, Opera, and Safari. 

Licensing Changes in 2023

Pyramid 2023 now has several new options that can be licensed separately. This includes:

  • The Tabulate and Solve apps
  • "Analyst" and "Basic" user types
  • The "Named Embedding" option
  • Multi-tenancy

Contact sales for details on these new options and capabilities.

Multi-tenancy Licensing Adjustment

As per above, "multitenancy" is now a separately licensed option that controls whether you can create more than one tenant in a Pyramid instance. If you are an existing customer using multitenancy capabilities in Pyramid 2020 or earlier,  you can request an updated license key with the multi-tenancy option enabled for Pyramid 2023 by emailing licensing@pyramidanalytics.com.

  • If you do not use multiple tenants, then you do not need to do anything. 

  • If you use multiple tenants, request a new replacement license key that enables the capability in a Pyramid 2023 instance. Until you apply the new key to the upgraded 2023 instance, your existing multi-tenant structure will remain operational, but you cannot add new tenants or adjust tenant-level settings.
  • There will be no additional charge for existing customers needing the new multi-tenancy license.
