Configuring Deployment Rules

Dec 21, 2015

You can set any number of parameters that will affect the deployment outcome of a package.

For example, your package deployment could be based on a specific operating system version, on a particular hardware platform, or some other combination. In this wizard, you will find both a Simple and Advanced rule editor, with the Advanced view being a free-form editor.

Simple Deployment Rules

Simple deployment rules are comprised of pre-defined tests and resulting actions. Where ever possible, the results are pre-built into the example tests. For example, when basing a package deployment on a hardware platform, all existing known platforms are populated into the resultant test, drastically reducing your rule creation time, and limiting possible errors.

Click on New rule to add a rule to the package.

Note: The rule builder includes further information, specific to each test.

To create a new rule, you select a rule template, select the condition type, and then customize the rule. Customizing the rule includes modifying the description. When you finish configuring settings, you add the rule to the package.

You can add as many rules as you want. The package is deployed when all of the rules match.

Advanced Deployment Rules

If you click on the Advanced tab, the Advanced Rule Editor appears.

In this mode, you can specify what relationship is set between the rules. The operators AND, OR, and NOT are available.
