Start a Deployment Manager deployment in a distributed, branch-based environment by using the Merge Branches wizard (8.3)

Updated on April 5, 2022

Beginning with Deployment Manager 4.4, the configuration of a distributed, branch-based environment has been simplified. You have the flexibility to deploy test cases only on the stages where they are needed and can avoid deploying them to higher environments, such as staging or production, where they might not be needed

You can now use the Merge Branches wizard on the remote development system to start a Deployment Manager deployment without using a Pega repository. However, backward compatibility is maintained, and you can also publish a branch to a Pega Platform™-supported development repository on the main development system to start a build.

To merge a branch:

  1. Click App > Branches.
  2. Right-click the branch that you want to merge and click Merge.
  3. Click Proceed.

To start a deployment, in the Application pipelines section of the Merge Branches wizard, from the Pipeline list, select the application into which you want to merge branches, as shown in the following figure.
