This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.


It is related to the JIRA system Magento uses internally. The patch number is the number of the ticket in the JIRA system AFAIK.


It is to do with the JIRA system used for Magento internally. It stands for EE Support so in JIRA I assume you will see SUPEE-404 etc.

  • Thanks, that's Intreresting, but there is no SUPCE patches :) – Nick Sep 18 '17 at 11:52
  • @Nick because there's no support for CE right ;) support is only for people who paid for EE ;) – Raphael at Digital Pianism Sep 18 '17 at 11:55
  • @RaphaelatDigitalPianism right, but patches are available for CE version as well – Nick Sep 18 '17 at 11:56
