Understanding pipelines in an environment without branches
If you do not use branches for application development, but you use ruleset-based development instead, you configure the continuous delivery pipeline in Deployment Manager.
The workflow of tasks in this pipeline is as follows:
- Developers update rules and check them in directly to the application rulesets on the development system.
- The product rule that contains the application rules to be packaged and moved through the systems in the pipeline is on the development system.
- Continuous delivery is started manually at a defined schedule by using Deployment Manager.
The following figure describes the workflow of a pipeline in an environment without branches.
