Manage test and application changes separately in Deployment Manager by using a separate product rule for test cases (8.3)
You can now separately manage application changes and test cases that are in the same pipeline by creating a separate product rule that contains only test cases. You also have the flexibility to choose the stage until which test cases are deployed to ensure that test cases are not deployed on higher environments, such as staging and production, where they might not be needed.
When you create test and production applications in Deployment Manager on your development system by using the New Application wizard, the wizard automatically creates separate product rules for your production and test applications.
Then, when you configure a pipeline in Deployment Manager for your application, you specify the product rules to use for both your production and test applications. After you specify that you want to deploy your test cases by selecting the Deploy application test cases check box, you select the details for the test cases application, including the pipeline stage to which you want to deploy the test cases, as shown in the following figure.
