The K2 4.7 March 2018 Cumulative Update contains updates and fixes for issues reported in K2 4.7 products. K2 recommends keeping your K2 environment updated by installing the latest cumulative update, and that you test this update before you deploy to a production environment.

Prerequisites and Dependencies

This cumulative update is only compatible with K2 4.7 products (K2 blackpearl 4.7, K2 smartforms 4.7, and K2 for SharePoint 4.7). Each new cumulative update contains the updates and fixes that were included with the previous cumulative updates. The cumulative update does not require any previous cumulative updates or fixes to be installed, and no additional cumulative update is required to fully update a K2 environment. If you have installed individual hotfixes included in this cumulative update, those hotfixes are not changed unless a newer version of the hotfix is available for the update.

Before you install this cumulative update, please check the K2 Product Releases and Build Numbers article to verify that this is the latest cumulative update available and that you have a current backup of your K2 database.
