Deploy a Release

Introduction

📘

Note

In this guide, it is assumed there is only one environment.

Deploying a release requires the following steps:

  1. If the release is not available on the server where it is being deployed, it must be acquired first. This can be done by either importing a release from a repository, or by uploading it.
    Furthermore, the build that the release uses should also be made available on the server if it is not already.
  2. The release is activated. If the release is activated for the first time, default user access rights should be configured.
  3. If the release is being deployed for the first time, user access rights will need to be configured.

Uploading a release

A release that has been made available by a developer as an .mvtag file can be uploaded to the server either by using the upload option, or by dragging a release file onto the Superadmin Releases tab.
Follow these steps to upload a release.

Go to the Superadmin Releases tab.

Drag the desired release file onto the Upload File dialog or browse for it on your computer.

Click on OK.

The imported release is now visible in the list of releases.

Uploading a build

The build used by the release must be available on the server to be able to activate the release. Which build is used by the release can be seen in the Build column in the Releases tab. If it is not yet available, the required build can be uploaded in the Builds tab. The build should be made available by the developer.

Follow these steps to upload a build.

Step

The uploaded build is now activated and visible in the list of builds.

See The Builds Tab.

Activating releases

When activating a release, a dialog is shown. Any modules not present in the previous active release are highlighted in green.
The default access rights of these new modules can be set to:

  • All users: all current and future users will automatically have access to the module.
  • No users: no current or future users will initially have access to the module. The individual user rights will need to be set for the module.

Any changes in the name and/or description of previously active modules will be highlighted in orange.
See illustration below.

Follow these steps to activate a release.

1

Go to the Superadmin Releases tab.

2

Right click on the release that is to be activated.

3

Select Make active on > production.

4

Select the desired default access for new modules, if any.

5

Click OK.

The Active on column now says production in front of the activated release and the release can be accessed by users with the proper access rights once a cache has been generated.

See The Releases Tab.

Automated release deployment

The following command-line functions are available that you can use to automate your release pipeline:

  • ImportRelease to import releases either from a local file or a Git repository.
  • ActivateRelease to activate the release.

You can use these commands in a batch script, to automatically release a new version to different (production) environments. For example, the processgold.bat script that is available in the Builds folder of your UiPath Process Mining installation.
