Using Version Statuses

Version statuses are used with environment gates to ensure that components are deployed or otherwise processed if they are in a designated status. You can select from available version statuses when you define gates for applications. There is no default setting.

You use version statuses as follows:

  1. Define the statuses

    Navigate to Administration > Automation, and in the selection box, select Status. Click the Add Status button and then select Version Status. Define the version statuses for your implementation. For example, INT_Ready, UAT_Ready, PROD_Ready.

  2. Add the condition

    See Gates.

    Note: In the Add a new condition selection box, both version statuses and snapshot statuses appear for selection.
  3. Set the specific component version's status
    See Adding Statuses to Component Versions.
    Note: You can also set version status as part of component and global processes using the DA Version plugin.
  4. Request a process to deploy the component

    The requested process will not run if any of the included component versions are not set to the status or statuses specified in the application environment's Gates tab. See Ways of Deploying.
