Typical sequence

This topic provides an overview of a typical sequence for configuring Deployment Automation elements and deploying artifacts.

Although there is no set order, a typical sequence is as follows:

  1. Create components and set your source configuration type and version import approach. The source configuration type points to where the artifacts for a component are stored. You can import the artifacts into Deployment Automation CodeStation automatically or manually. See Create components.

  2. Create and design component processes, defining the processes you want performed on target machines before, during, and after deployment of the component artifacts. See Create and design component processes.

  3. Create resources to represent logical locations on agent machines. See Create resources.

  4. Create environments and assign resources to them. See Create environments.

  5. Create and configure pipelines, sequencing environments and adding approvals. See Create pipelines.

  6. Create an application, selecting the pipeline it will use. See Create applications.

  7. Add components to the application. See Add components to applications.

  8. Add environments to the application that are not included in the pipeline and map components to the environment resources they will use. See Map application components to resources.

  9. Create and design an application process to control the deployment. An application process typically initiates multiple component processes. See Create and design application processes.

  10. Run the application process to deploy the components. See Run deployment processes.

  11. Create and design deployment packages to run multi-application deployments. See Create deployment packages.
