Using Snapshot Statuses
Snapshot statuses are used with environment gates to ensure that snapshots are deployed or otherwise processed only if they are in a designated status. You can select from available snapshot statuses when you define gates for applications. There is no default setting.
You use snapshot statuses as follows:
Define the statuses
Navigate to Administration > Automation > Statuses. Select the Snapshot tab and click Create. Define the snapshot statuses for your implementation. For example, INT_Ready, UAT_Ready, PROD_Ready.
Add the condition
Set the specific snapshot's status
Request a process to deploy the snapshot
The requested process will not run if the snapshot is not set to the status or statuses specified in the application environment's Gates tab. See Running deployment processes.
