Actioning Release Trains Through the Workflow

As you work with release trains, you are presented with buttons on the user interface for workflow actions that are available to you. A simplified representation of the default workflow for a release train is shown in the following figure.


The actions that appear here are:

For example, after you create a new release train, the release train goes into the Planning state, and the Release Train dialog box shows the next action, Send for Review, as shown in the following figure.


When you click Send for Review, the release train goes into the Review state. A user with the role responsible for review must then publish the release train so that it progresses to the In Progress state. The release train remains in the In Progress state until it is either reverted back to the planning state for additional changes or progressed to one of the completion states.

The progression to Passed Testing, Failed Testing, Deployed, or Failed Deployment is typically done automatically based on the results of deployment tasks associated with a release package.
