Best practices for changing BOSH property names


Jim CF Campbell
 

In order to prevent build pipeline breaking changes, when changing BOSH
property names it is recommended that:

-

Support both the new and old name “for a while”.
-

Announce breaking change on cf-dev, including what “a while” is.
-

Modify stub manifests on all deployments that you know and care about.
-

After "a while", remove the old property name.
