One tool to build Releases. Release’s content is divided into four parts:
1. Already delivered (already imported or waiting to be imported) 2. Potential elements to be delivered (waiting for validation) 3. Elements that are not ready and they will be delivered with next deliveries 4. Elements that are not concerned by current delivery but whose orders are waiting to be imported (Release Exceptions)
Graphs show Release Content (Aggregated on one or many axis).
Reporting to determine Release status to anticipate decision making
Any information about items that constitute Release, can be shown even customer specific fields.
UI can be customized based on client needs.
Application can be deployed in many ways: 1. Full on Premise a. Without using SCP b. Using SCP 2. On Could
Release will be scheduled after validation of Release Manager. Authority check on Release Manager validation and Release scheduling.
Make sure that Release executed correctly. Logging Release’s execution to highlight errors origins.
Ensure releases contain correct elements, good order and respect development’s best practices rules.
Links to many useful external tools. Navigation between items easy and intuitive.
Handle exceptions by showing elements that are already delivered but neither imported nor concerned by current Release.
Possibility to exclude elements although they are already delivered to avoid import. Second chance for Release Manager to reject some elements from current lot. Integration with Downgrade Protection to minimize risks of production regressions.
