Starting with the March 1, 2019 release, UrbanCode Velocity is using semantic versioning for product releases. The semantic versioning contains a three-part version number: major version, minor version, and patch. At any given time, only the latest two releases are available. Always download the latest version. For download information, see the Getting Started tab.

Key Features in 1.4.0

The following enhancements are included in each release. In addition to various bug fixes.

New Community Edition

In UrbanCode Velocity v1.4.0, we have reimagined our Community Edition. Now, the IBM UrbanCode Velocity Community Edition is combined into the primary install to create a simplified experience. Instead of being limited to the UrbanCode Deploy Audit Reports, the Community Edition opens the entire product, limited to two users, for free.

Note: This Community Edition version replaces the original Community Edition. The older version is no longer supported. You must migrate to the new version.


For supported platforms and requirements you can dynamically generate a system requirements report using the Software Product Compatibility Reports (SPCR) tool.

Install the server

There are two option to obtaining the installation package: online installer and offline installer. Both options will require a master license key, which can be acquired from:

IBM Passport Advantage – Use this option if you have purchased IBM UrbanCode Velocity

Trial Installation – Use this option if you would like to try IBM UrbanCode Velocity

Online installer

The online installer option for installing the product requires an internet connection for the entire process. It requires minimum storage for the downloaded package. The downloaded image contains only the Helm charts used to pull the product Docker images from a GitHub location. This is our recommended installation method.

Download the online installer package depending on the platform, the product is being installed.

After the download completes, start the executable file to begin the install process.

Offline installer

The offline installer process allows for installation of product without an internet connection. You’ll need a connection only to download the product image. All containers needed to successfully install the product are included. For this reason, the images requires more space when downloading.

The installation package is available from IBM FixCentral. Search and select the installation package appropriate for the installation platform.

After downloading the the installation package, decompress the contents into two directories, one for Kubernetes and the other for Docker Compose. The instructions for installing the server are located in the product documentation, see the Installation topic.

To obtain the product license key you must agree to the terms and condition statements provided on Passport Advantage. The license key is required to start the install process for the initial and future installations.


The download package includes the installation program for both Docker Compose and Kubernetes. To obtain the license key you must first agree to the terms and condition statements provided on Passport Advantage. The license key is required to start the install process for the initial and future installations.
