You can start deployments in a number of ways. For example, you can start a deployment manually if you are not using branches, by submitting a branch into the Merge Branches wizard, or by publishing application changes in App Studio to create a patch version of your application. Your user role determines if you can start a deployment.
- Manually starting a deployment
You can start a deployment manually if you are not using branches and are working directly in rulesets. You can also start a deployment manually if you do not want deployments to start automatically when branches are merged.
- Understanding application changes made in App Studio
You can publish application changes that you make in App Studio to the pipeline. Publishing your changes creates a patch version of the application and starts a deployment. For example, you can change a life cycle, data model, or user interface elements in a screen and submit those changes to systems in the pipeline.
- Starting a deployment as you merge branches from the development environment
In either a branch-based or distributed, branch-based environment, you can immediately start a deployment by submitting a branch into a pipeline in the Merge Branches wizard. The wizard displays the merge status of branches so that you do not need to open Deployment Manager to view it.
