What is a Deployment Plan

What is a Release

How to make use of Deployment Plans and Releases


What is a Deployment Plan


We know Project is an endeavor to perform work in a given amount of time. Each Project lead wants to define the timelines based on the Project plan. But how do you facilitate coordination across multiple projects from a timeline perspective.  This is where a Deployment Plan is required. The Deployment Plan can be thought of like a train and each Project can be thought of as a compartment in that train. One Deployment Plan can serve multiple Projects but one Project can only have a maximum of one Deployment Plan. The assignment of Deployment Plan to a Project is optional.

 

What are Releases?


A train has always a schedule of stops along the way. They are called Releases. A Release can exist only within a unique Deployment Plan and has a date range. As an example look at the screenshot below


 

How to use Deployment Plans




  • Step 1: Create a Deployment Plan








  • Step 2: Create Releases




You can create a Release by clicking on the Plus icon





  • Step 3: Assign Deployment Plan to Project








  • Step 4: Assign Requirement to Releases





 

Note that since only one Deployment Plan can be assigned to Project, The Requirement has only the Release assignment and does not need Deployment Plan assignment
