During a normal development and implementation process, you build and test new application features in a dedicated development environment. After testing, you migrate the application to a different environment, for example, the business-as-usual staging server.
Packaging and importing a new implementation application
When first migrating a new application to a different environment, you must manually package and import it. For more information, see Packaging an application.
Making further updates to your implementation application
To deploy further changes to your production environment, for example, after developing new features for your implementation application, we recommend using Deployment Manager pipelines to automate the migration process for Pega Customer Decision Hub. Your Deployment Manager version must be 4.8 or later. For more information about Deployment Manager, see Understanding model-driven DevOps with Deployment Manager.
If you do not use Deployment Manager, you can also continue to manually package your application and import it into different environments.
