Working with Process Apps → Promoting Process Apps → About Configuration Entities
Promotion transfers the process app design, originally created in SBM Composer, and optionally configuration data or entities to an environment. Configuration data includes notifications, reports, selections for User-type fields, and more.
The following tables show the entities that you can promote with process apps. The scope indicates where the data is contained. The entities that are marked Global are database-specific and apply to all process apps. Application-specific entities are tied to the workflows or projects in an application.

For assistance with promoting custom application groups (those that are not packaged with a Serena solution such as Service Manager or Release Control), contact Serena Support.
Application groups are a bundle of applications that come with a Serena-provided solution, such as Release Control, or that are created by an administrator for use with Serena Work Center.
Application groups are included in each snapshot for referenced applications. For example, if an application group contains Application A, Application B, and Application C, snapshots created each of these applications contain the references for all three applications.
When you promote a snapshot that contains an application group, each application referenced in the group should exist in the environment you are promoting to. Applications that are not in the environment are not listed as part of the application group in Application Administrator or Work Center. If you promote the missing applications, the references in the application group are resolved.
Shared views (activity, backlog, calendar, and dashboard) and public feeds added to those shared views are promoted with the applications they reference. The shared view owner must exist in both environments.
For example, Public Feed A is added to Shared View 1. The feed and view were created in Application X. When Application X is promoted, Public Feed A and Shared View 1 are promoted.
While these shared assets for groups and users will be promoted, that they will not be pinned to the navigation menu in the target environment. Administrators or end-users will need to re-pin these in the target Work Center runtime environment.
Public feeds associated with system views are also promoted with the applications they reference.
