Stax Version tag no longer applied to Workloads

Published 23 Jul 2020

The stax:version tag will no longer be applied to CloudFormation stacks within new Workload deployments in Stax. This change has been introduced to improve the speed and reliability of Workload deployments.

Prior to this change, the tag was applied to all CloudFormation stacks deployed as part of a Workload.

Newly deployed Workloads will notice this change immediately. Any running Workload will retain this tag until the next Workload update, at which point it will be automatically removed by Stax.

The stax:version tag did not relate in any way to the version of the Workload deployed, rather it was used for Stax-internal purposes only.
