Using Deployment Manager, you can package and deploy test cases separately on the candidate systems in the pipeline. When you configure a pipeline in Deployment Manager, you specify the details of the test package that you want to deploy. To define on or until which stage the test artifact can be deployed, you can set the configuration using the Deploy task. Check Deploy test artifact? on the Deploy task of the stage where test artifact shall be deployed.
To use a separate test package, you must create a test application layer on the development systems in your pipeline.
- Configuring the application stack on the development or source development system
You must first configure your application stack on either the development or source development system.
- Configuring the application stack on the remote development system in a distributed, branch-based environment
If you are using a distributed, branch-based environment, you must configure the application stack on the remote development system.
- Configuring pipelines to use test cases
When you add or modify a pipeline, you specify whether you want to deploy test cases and then configure details for the test application, including its name and access group to which it belongs, in the Application test cases section. To select a stage for deployment of the artifact, check the Deploy test artifact? field on the Deploy task for that stage.
