That's understandable, David.
This is my personal opinion and PB may take a different view, but so much in 2018.2 did not work for us; it was effectively unusable for users. SSA 2018.2 needs patches to overcome the immediate problems.
We went to SSA 2018.2 but after five working days of non SSA service we had to roll back to 12.2.2. It was a painful experience.
Moreover, I strongly disagree with the way in which essential day to day elements of admin have been taken out of Admin Console and placed into the SSA front end (under admin log in). In 2018.2 administration is carried out across two separate interfaces, not in the one Admin Console as it always has been.
I'm going to wait and see if the SSA front end and administration issues are resolved in the October/November 2019 SSA release before moving on.
Yes, 12.2.2 has it's problems but they can be worked around. SSA 2018.2 was unusable for us.
But of course, other sites may form a different opinion.
