Component Processes

A component process is a series of user-defined steps that operate on a component's artifacts. Each component has at least one process defined for it and can have several. Component processes are created with Serena Release Automation's process editor. The process editor is a visual drag-and-drop editor that enables you to drag process steps onto the design space and configure them as you go. Process steps are selected from a menu of standard steps. See Process Editor

Serena Release Automation provides steps for several utility processes such as inventory management and workflow control. Additional process steps are provided by plug-ins. Out-of-the-box, Serena Release Automation provides plug-ins for many common processes, such as downloading and uploading artifacts, and retrieving environment information. See Plug-ins.

A frequently used process can be saved as a template and applied to other components. See Component Templates.
