The Washington State Liquor and Cannabis Board (WSLCB) issued an important message for cannabis retailers today.
Software version 1.37.5 is the most comprehensive release to the Leaf system yet. And, as you know, this release was delayed to ensure proper validation and third party commercial integrator readiness.
New: Leaf Data Systems will not be available for at least 48 hours prior to the release in order to migrate and validate the data.
To ensure this has the least possible impact on our market, the outage could begin at 11:00 p.m. on Saturday, July 13 and run potentially until 8:00 a.m. on Tuesday July 16.
While the vendor originally requested that an outage would be limited to Sunday with a re-opening Monday morning on July 15, they are now requesting an additional day to run extensive security tests including a data script that will relieve labs and licensees from having to enter lab results for product which only previously had an attestation. This means that the system is now scheduled to be down until Tuesday morning, July 16, at 8:00 a.m. For those using third-party commercial software, please check with your provider on the impact to your operation.
We are currently working closely with our vendor to ensure that that the system rollout is entirely ready before releasing it to commercial integrators and licensees.
