Configuring your application and test packages
When you configure an upgrade pipeline, you provide an application product rule and a confidence test product rule.
For each of your applications, create new or re-use any existing application product rule that you already use in a standard deployment pipeline. Your application product rule should include the entire application and any fixes made to support the upgrade. For more information about creating product rules, see Packaging your application in a product rule.
For each of your applications, create a confidence test product rule that includes the confidence testing assets, such as access groups and operators, and data instances that are necessary to make your go/no-go confidence testing decision in your temporary production environment. Do not include any rules in this product rule that are included in the test application package. When you deploy the upgrade pipeline, Deployment Manager promotes the changes in these rules to the temporary production environment. The confidence testing assets are only for testing purposed and Deployment Manager discards them before the next, Production stage during which Pega software is upgraded in your actual production environment.
