Introduction

Brevity V5 is a combination of API services running in the cloud, server software (Brevity Engines) and a client application (Brevity App). Updates to Brevity can include updates to some or all of these components. Updates to the API services running in the cloud are always performed by the AllDigital engineering team. Updates to the server software (Brevity Engine) and client application (Brevity App) are deployed automatically by restarting the Brevity Engine service or Brevity App. Please contact AllDigital support for more information on this process.
