Environments management

Release management app has embedded functionality for environment management and mapping versions to environments.

Also, an Environments gadget is available to visualize all environments for a version and all versions for a particular environment.

Environments management

User can manage environments on "Environments" tab in the main application menu.

 

Create environment

New environment could be created by a click on “Create environment“ button.

Name and Environment type are mandatory fields. Description and Versions list are optional.

In the current version of the Release management app, Environment type is predefined and has the following options:

  • Development

  • Staging

  • Integration

  • Production

Please contact us via support channel to speed up the development of configurable Environment type list.

By default, the Description field is initialized with a predefined template which is not configurable in the current version.

On the Versions tab, a user can specify what versions to be deployed to the environment and see already deployed versions. User can also specify Build Number of the version deployed to specific environment for better tracking.

Search functionality by version name, version project, version column is available.

Edit environment

User can edit environment by click at Environment name in the table:

 

Edit environment dialog is the same as Create environment dialog. You can read all the details in the chapter above.

Assign version to environment

User can assign a version to the environment from Edit environment dialog, Version tab. See chapter above.

On the tab a user can see all already deployed versions, add new versions from all versions in the board or remove already added versions from the environment.

An alternative option is to assign a version to the environment from versions details dialog, Environment tab:

The user can see all environments where the version is deployed, remove the version from the environment or add the version to any available environment in the board.
