Previewing deployments and routes

You can use this feature to preview your environment and route deployments. Previewing a deployment helps you in identifying details of the deployment. These details help you answer questions such as: 

  • Which process will trigger when deployment begins?
  • Which channels will be used for the deployment?
  • Which activities are involved in the deployment and what is the flow of activities in the process?

The following modes of deployment preview are available with the system:

  • Environment: Previews a deployment action for a specific package or repository instance into a specific environment. From the preview summary, you can continue with deployment.
  • Route: Previews all deployment actions (deployment and removal) throughout an entire route

Each preview identifies the content specification used to process each piece of instance content, the processes that will run, and which channels will receive the content.

Before you begin

Before previewing a deployment to an environment or a route, you must have created an instance of the package for the preview. For more information on creating a package, see Working with packages.
