The deployment of an application in LifeTime takes a tagged version of the application from one environment to another. Just select the version and LifeTime deploys the application in the exact development state of when it was tagged.
Here's an example of deploying applications.
Deploy a Web and a Mobile Applications
In this example, two applications are being developed in the Development environment:
- A mobile app (MyApp);
- A Web application (MyWebApp).
A milestone is reached and the applications are ready to be tested in Quality. They are tagged as follows:
- The mobile app is tagged with version 0.2;
- The Web application is tagged wih version 0.3.
To deploy both applications to Quality:
Click on the 'Deploy...' button between Development and Quality to choose the deployment;
In the 'DO NOTHING' deploy options, select 'Deploy 0.2' for MyApp, and 'Deploy 0.3' for MyWebApp.
Click on 'Validate Now' to validate the deployment in Quality;
The deploy is ok (all green). Click on 'Continue' to move on to the summary of the deployment plan;
Type the Deployment Notes and click on 'Deploy Now' to execute the deployment.
When the deployment finishes, both applications have the same tagged version in both environments.
