Managing aged updates
If your role has the appropriate permissions, you can manage aged updates in a number of ways, such as importing them, skipping the import, or manually deploying applications. Managing aged updates gives you more flexibility in how you deploy application changes.
Do the following steps:
Do one of the following actions:
- If the pipeline is not open, in the navigation pane of Deployment Manager, click , and then click the name of the pipeline.
- If the pipeline is open, click the name of the pipeline.
Click View aged updates to view a list of the rules and data instances, which are in the application package, that are older than the instances that are on the system.
Click the More icon and do one of the following actions:
- To import the older rule and data instances that are in the application package into the system, which overwrites the newer versions that are on the system, click Overwrite aged updates.
- To skip the import, click Skip aged updates.
- To manually deploy the package from the Import wizard on the system, click Deploy manually and resume. Deployment Manager does not run the Deploy step on the stage.
- Understanding aged updates
An aged update is a rule or data instance in an application package that is older than an instance that is on a system to which you want to deploy the application package. By being able to import aged updates, skip the import, or manually deploy your application changes, you now have more flexibility in determining the rules that you want in your application and how you want to deploy them.
- Understanding roles and users
Define roles and users to manage which users can access Deployment Manager and which features they can access. For example, you can create a role that does not permit users to delete pipelines for a specific application.
