Getting Ready to Upgrade
The update to QRadar V7.3.3 requires that the existing deployment be installed with either QRadar V7.3.0, V7.3.1, or V7.3.2 (any patch version). Administrators on a QRadar 7.3.x version can use the SFS file from IBM Fix Central to update their deployment to QRadar 7.3.3. It is important that administrators ensure that installed applications, such as UBA, Pulse, and others are updated to the latest version before you begin your upgrade. Administrators who are on the latest version of the QRadar Assistant App can use the app to identify applications that have newer versions available.
QRadar 7.3.x admins, download the 7.3.3 SFS to upgrade

I’m using QRadar on Cloud, will I get the 7.3.3 update?
Administrators who are using QRadar on Cloud should receive an update email from IBM. Our QRadar on Cloud DevOps team notifies the QRadar on Cloud administrative contact over email to inform them of their scheduled maintenance window. If you are a QRadar on Cloud administrator, you will receive the update to QRadar 7.3.3 and can notify the team at this email address to discuss your upgrade window. As new software versions are released, you will receive further updates to inform you of scheduled maintenance to your QRadar on Cloud deployment.
