Quiesce a form template

Note: Visit www.microsoft.com for the most up-to-date and comprehensive information.

Quiescing a form template removes it from use by first making it unavailable to users who are not already using it and then, after a specified period of time, making it unavailable to all users.

When upgrading a form template, you may want to first quiesce it so that users do not suffer an abrupt transition from the old version to the upgraded version.

  2. On the Application Management page, in the InfoPath Forms Services section, click Manage form templates.

  3. On the Manage Form Templates page, in the list of templates, point to the form template that you want to quiesce, click the arrow that appears, and then click Quiesce Form Template.

  4. On the Quiesce Form Template page, in the The Form Template should be fully quiesced after this long (Time in Minutes) box in the Quiesce section, type the number of minutes before the form template becomes unavailable to all users.

    On a production system, you should quiesce the form for at least as long as the session state setting on the server. By default, the session state setting is 240 minutes.

  5. Click Start Quiescing.

    The date and time at which the form template will be fully quiesced (unavailable to all users) is reported in the Quiesce section.

    The status of the form template is displayed in the status column of the Manage Form Templates page. The status of a fully quiesced form template is displayed as Quiesced.
