To migrate a new application to a different environment, you must package the application before you can import it to the new environment.
- Merging application changes
If you develop your application features in separate branches, use the Merge Branches wizard to merge the branches before you package the application. The wizard shows any merge conflicts so that you can correct them before you merge the branches.
- Packaging an application for migration
Before you can migrate a new application to a different environment, you must package the relevant data instances and rulesets into a product rule. The product rule is an instance of Rule-Admin-Product, which Pega Platform refers to as the RAP file.
- Importing the packaged application
To deploy a new application to a different environment, you must import the .ZIP file that contains the packaged application to the new environment.
- Multitenancy deployment considerations
In a multitenancy environment, the shared application components are deployed only to the shared environment, and the tenant-specific components are deployed only to the tenant region.
