Testing the deployment
After you deploy the changes, the release engineer and specified users can test the changes. For the staging environment, test the performance and the user interface, run automated tests, and do acceptance testing. For the production environment, perform validation tests.
- On the target system, create a copy of the access group for your application. This step is a one-time process, because now this access group is available anytime you deploy changes.
- Update the copied access group so that it references the new application version.
- Find the operator ID record for a test user and give that operator ID record access to the access group that you just created.
When you are satisfied that your release was deployed successfully, Release Engineering can activate the release for all users in the production environment.
