You can pre-define implementation-specific inventory, component version, and snapshot status values and subsequently use them to do the following:
- Apply inventory statuses to component versions when they are successfully deployed to resources
- Apply and enforce conditions on application gates based on statuses of component versions and snapshots
To add status values, navigate to Administration > Automation > Statuses. Add values as needed for your implementation.
Each status has a required name and several optional values, as described in the following table:
Status Attributes Table
|Name||Identifies the status; appears in user-interface. Used to create gates, and available in process steps.|
|Color||Hexadecimal color definition; determines the color displayed in the user interface.|
|Unique||Boolean value (true|false). Only one component version with this status/attribute will be deployed to the environment.|
|Required Component Role||Security role required by user to add this status to the component version.|
Note: While you can add as many values as you like, you cannot create new status types. Only Inventory, Version, and Snapshot status types are supported.
Note: Process completion status is built in and cannot be changed. This should not be confused with these other status types.
The following topics describe the use of the statuses.
