Configuring the Dimensions CM Global Stage Lifecycle

To make the deployment stages in Serena Release Control easy for users to understand, it is recommended that you match the Global Stage Lifecycle (GSL) stages in the Dimensions CM process model to the Serena Release Control stages for major, minor, and emergency release types. You can also configure Serena Release Control stages to match the GSL stages if you have already established GSL stages that users are familiar with.

You must define the deployment areas and assign them to each project you are using for each stage in the GSL. See "Area Definitions" in the Dimensions CM Process Modeling User’s Guide.
