Creating Release Elements.
A typical flow using a deployable release train is shown in the
Note: The flow you use in your implementation may be different.
- Create standalone release packages.
- Add requests, deployment units, and deployment tasks to the release
- Deploy, approve, and validate release packages in the test
environments in the deployment path.
- Deliver production-ready release packages to the release engineering
team for acceptance.
- Optionally organize the release packages in a logical
parent-child hierarchy for attachment to a release train.
Tip: This is typically done in preparation for deploying
the release train, and is therefore done after candidate release packages have
been tested through test environments. Once the release packages are ready to
be released as part of a particular release train, the release package
hierarchy can be added to the release train.
- Create a deployable release train and add exit criteria and
- Add all standalone and parent release packages targeted for this
release to the release train and add any train-level requests, deployment
units, and deployment tasks.
Tip: The linked release packages will be changed to follow
the production deployment path associated with the release train.
- Approve the release train for deployment.
- Deploy and approve the release train through the production
