Overview → Configuring Release Trains → Creating Release Trains
You should create a release train when you are ready to request approval for or begin scoping and scheduling the deployment of one of more release packages. You can create a release train before or after you create the release packages that will be associated with it.
Prerequisites: Ensure you have set up the minimum objects required before you try to create a release train.
Refer to Creating Release Elements.

The required fields when you create a release train are as follows:
Optional fields include:
The tabs available from a release train once it is created are as follows:
From this tab, you can do the following:
To ease the release train setup process, you can create a release train and copy it to create new release trains, modifying the information as needed for the new trains. If you plan to use more than one type of release train, consider setting up a standard release train of each type that you plan to use so that release managers can then copy them and complete their configuration more quickly.
Information that you may want to set up ahead of time so that it can be copied to various release trains includes:
During a release train copy, release managers select new start and end dates. Dates for stage gates and milestones automatically adjust relative to the new train stage dates. Dates can be adjusted manually as needed.
To copy a release train, select the Make a copy link located on the More drop-down list on an existing release train.
