Starting a deployment as you merge branches from the development environment

In either a branch-based or distributed, branch-based environment, you can immediately start a deployment by submitting a branch into a pipeline in the Merge Branches wizard. The wizard displays the merge status of branches so that you do not need to open Deployment Manager to view it.

If you are using a separate product rule for a test application, after you start a deployment either by using the Merge Branches wizard, the branches of both the target and test applications are merged in the pipeline.

You can submit a branch to your application and start the continuous integration portion of the pipeline when the following criteria is met:

  • You have created a pipeline for your application in Deployment Manager.
  • You are merging a single branch.
  • The RMURL dynamic system setting, which defines the URL of orchestration server, is configured on the system.
  • All the rulesets in your branch belong to a single application that is associated with your pipeline. Therefore, your branch cannot contain rulesets that belong to different application layers.
