Deploy the configuration

You use the full deployment to deploy a validated configuration release to a new environment.

1 - Package generation

Using the Repository createDeploymentPackage script, the administrator generates a configuration package with all the configuration objects. The package is generated per application and contains the formats, dictionaries, settings, libraries, datasources and report templates deployed associated to the application.

2 - Deployment on target environment

The administrator copies the deployment package to the target environment.

3 - Import of new configuration

The administrator uses the Configuration API scripts to import the deployment package to the target Repository instance.

For more information, refer to Repository import scripts

4 - Update of new configuration

The administrator uses the script to update the configuration version used by the target instance.

For more information, refer to Configuration update script
