deploy(webMethods)

The deploy operation is used to deploy webMethods assets to target server or cluster. Targets can be a standalone Integration Server (or) a group of Integration Servers in a cluster.

This deploy operation performs the following deployment activities.

  • Generate the Project Automator XML file based on the configured environment properties & the build version selected for deployment.
  • Execute webMethods Project Automator command line script to facilitate automatic project creation in webMethods Deployer.
  • Execute webMethods Deployer command line script to deploy assets.

Deploy operation should be used in deploy workflows. Make sure to set the endpoint resource type to WM Deployer Server.

Tip

 As a best practice, use webMethods Deployer based deployment which has efficient features such as simulation, handling clusters, detailed reports & logs, inter-dependency check etc.
