Designing Application Processes
Application processes tell Deployment Automation what to do when you deploy whole applications.
You design processes using the process designer, where you drag process steps from a menu of steps onto the design space and configure them immediately. As you place additional steps, you visually define their relationships with one another.
For application processes, you select from a menu of utility steps and other steps such as installing components. These enable you to operate on sets of components associated with the application.
Here's an example of a designed application process:

- Show Connection Options: Select this to show the options for all connections.
- In Tools, select process steps.
- Use the Search box to find a step by name.
- Select and drag steps to the design area to add them to your process.
- Connect process steps and edit or delete existing steps or connections, see Connecting Process Steps.
