Perforce Maintenance Support Policy

Perforce software is thoroughly tested and backed by active Engineering and Support teams.

Standard Maintenance

During Standard Maintenance, Perforce provides patches for Severity A bugs, which include crash, data corruption, erroneous results, high-risk security vulnerability, malfunction with no workaround or serious performance.

The Standard Maintenance period is defined as: 

  • Server Releases up to two years after their initial availability.
  • Desktop and Web Apps up to one year after their initial availability.

Extended Maintenance

During Extended Maintenance (an additional two years after Standard Maintenance), customers may request specific bug fixes on older releases for an additional fee. Please contact Sales for more information.
