A Typical Flow Using Release Packages

This section describes a typical successful flow using release packages without release trains. The flow you use in your implementation may be different.

The steps in this section assume that Release Control has been installed and configured, and that release elements have been created using the steps in Creating Release Elements.

  1. Create parent release packages.
  2. Optionally create child release packages.
  3. Complete construction on the release packages.
  4. Deploy and validate release packages through the pre-Production environments in the deployment path.
  5. Deliver production-ready release packages to the release engineering team for acceptance.
  6. Initiate deployment so the release packages are deployed to production on their scheduled date.

After release package deployment to production is verified, the release packages are closed by the release manager or a release engineer.
