Adding Packages by Ready for Release Workflow Step

Release management provides a Ready for Release workflow step source, which can add significant value to your release process. When a package line reaches the Ready for Release workflow step and is run, the status of the package line changes to Confirmed. As soon as all the lines in a package reach this status, the entire package status changes to Ready for Release. The release distribution can then feed back to each of its associated packages, so that each package can progress to the next workflow step.

To reject the Ready for Release workflow step, select Bypass Execution or Override Status. This stops package release, but allows the package to continue through its own workflow.

To act on a Ready for Release workflow step:

  1. From the Workbench shortcut bar, select Deployment Mgmt > Packages.

    The Package Workbench opens.

  2. Open a package.

    The Package window opens.

  3. Click the Status tab.

  4. Select the workflow step to act on.

    Workflows that are available for action are displayed in bold text. After you select an available workflow step, the Action button label changes to the workflow step name.

  5. Click Ready for Release.

    The Package Action window opens.

  6. In the Results field, select the workflow step result.

    You can also type any relevant notes in this window.

  7. Use the Add to Release field to select the release to associate with the package.

    This field may be required, depending on the workflow step configuration.

  8. Click OK.

  9. In the Package window, click OK.

    The package is now ready for release.
