What feature quality levels does Mattermost have?

We strive to release viable features. This means that we put in a significant amount of effort to ensure we solve a use case with a high bar for quality. A feature that’s viable and meets our criteria for our production quality levels will be released to production.

However, when working on large and complex features or new products, we may need to test them with a high volume of customers and users. For these scenarios, we’ll release them as experimental or beta and implement feature flags and/or A/B testing to validate the effectiveness of features prior to production-level release.

We dogfood our features on our community server and provide many configuration options that ensure customers can opt-in when trying experimental or beta features.

This list describes the quality levels of Mattermost features, and what can be expected at each level.

Production Level Quality - Recommended for use in production environments - Eligible for commercial support by Mattermost, Inc. - Detailed documentation is available - Tested on several platforms

Beta Level Quality - Support best-effort only. Premier Support is recommended for use in production environments - Core functionality is stable, but iteration based on feedback is ongoing - Detailed documentation may not be available yet - Data schema may not be complete, and may require manual migrations to future versions

Experimental Level Quality - Not recommended for use in production - Unknown level of stability - Feature set covers a small or specific set of use cases. Additional use and edge cases will be added over time - Data loss can occur as data schemas and configurations may change - Minimal documentation is available
