Managing deployment levels

Managing deployment levels

Administrators can manage deployment packages through the levels within a development life cycle, where an automation package moves from the development environment to the production environment. An administrator must perform specific actions for each package based on corporate guidelines that outline when to add or adjust the package deployment levels. You can deploy a package to a level and assign that level's package version to a department, user or work group. After you assign the package, Pega Robot Runtime can execute the assigned deployment package on the desktop or virtual machine. 

Pega Robot Manager™ provides the following default deployment levels:

  • Development – The level where developers update and maintain the package
  • User acceptance testing (UAT) – The level where business users test the package functionality
  • Production – The level where case workers use the final package version in a live environment
Note: You cannot rename, reorder, or delete Development and Production deployment levels. You can edit UAT.
