Run deployment package processes
Deployment package processes deploy artifacts for multiple applications and components that span applications.
Deployment package processes can run manually, automatically on some trigger condition, or on a user-defined schedule.
When a deployment has several application processes or a combination of application and component processes defined for it, the deployment package determines which ones are run and in which order. For example, deployment package might deploy all applications for a quarterly release.
A deployment package can orchestrate the entire process, including all included processes plus additional utility steps included at the deployment package level.
For more details about deployment, see Run deployment processes.
To run a deployment package process:
Navigate to Management > Deployment Packages.
Select a deployment package.
Click Run. The process wizard opens.
If the deployment package has a pipeline associated with it, select an execution type. Click Next.
If prompted, select one or more environments in which to run the package. These may be limited based on the pipeline or environment you select.
- If you selected Do not use pipeline, selected environments do not initiate a pipeline run even if you select the first environment in the pipeline.
- If you select multiple environments, they run in parallel, and steps that do not have environments use the same set of environments.
- The list displays environments that have application environment counterparts in all used applications. If you select Show all available environments, environments that are used in at least one of the associated applications are added to the list.
If prompted, enter or select values. The selections for versions, snapshots, and other properties are taken from the application or component process properties.
Click Submit to start the process.
When a process starts, the Request page opens, where you can review the progress. The process list contains information about each step. The status of each step is displayed in color on the process graphic:
- Blue: Waiting to start.
- Yellow: Running.
- Green: Succeeded.
- Red: Failed.
- Grey: Canceled.
For details, see Analyze deployments.
Users notified for any approvals must approve or reject. See Approve requests.
Note: If gate conditions are defined for a target environment, the component versions or snapshots are deployed into that environment only if their status meets those conditions. For details, see Create gates.
