Deploy Step

The Deploy step deploys a single named project from the snapshot to the stage.

  

Field

Description

Step Name

The name of the step.

Description

An optional description for the step.

Project Name

The name of the project in the snapshot to deploy.  This project must be in the snapshot, or the deployment will fail.

Force DeployWhether or not to force deploy the project.  If true, this is equivalent to checking force deploy when individually deploying a project to an environment through the deploy request form.  Optionally, use a Groovy expression to make this field dynamic based on some contextual value (e.g. a property defined on the pipeline, and specified on the release).
FlexFieldsIf Deploy Request FlexFields are configured, entry will be prompted for on the step configuration (not shown above).  If the information is provided in the stage execution info, it will override the data entered on the step configuration.
InputsIf the deploy workflow for the project has inputs, entry will be prompted for on the step configuration (not shown above).  If the information is provided in the stage execution info, it will override the data entered on the step configuration.
Precondition

An optional Groovy script which determines whether the gate or step is applicable during execution. The script has access to variables and methods listed in Pipeline Groovy Variables and Methods. You can find these variables methods using Variable Lookup help.

The script must return true if the gate is applicable, or false otherwise.  If no script is provided, the default is to return true (applicable).

ContinueIf checked, any failure will be ignored, and the pipeline execution will continue.
Notify Pipeline RoleSelects one or more roles from the pipeline definition to notify in case of error.  Default role members are defined on the pipeline, and optional overridden for each release.

Deploying a named project reduces the generic nature of pipelines, as it assumes that the specific project is in the release and snapshot.  To make the pipeline more generic, and therefore reusable, you should try to avoid tying it to specific projects where possible.

Script Variables

Groovy script can be written for many configuration values on specific step or gate. Additionally, gate or step can be skipped by providing Precondition groovy script as well. All such groovy script has access to various variables and methods listed below on this page.

FlexDeploy version 5.2.0.3 allows for finding such variables and methods using Variable Lookup help. Prior versions allowed such help with use of  drop-down next to script input.


Variable

Description

ReleaseName

Name of the release provided when created
SnapshotNameName of the snapshot (auto generated by date and time when created)
SnapshotDuplicateFilesFlag'Y' if there are duplicate files in the snapshot, otherwise 'N'
SnapshotDescriptionDescription of the snapshot
StageExecutionId

ID of the execution

PipelineDefinitionIdPipeline Id.
PipelineNamePipeline name.
stgexec

Allows access to execution details for Gate, Step, Deploy or Utility workflows.

This variable was previously called FD_Release, which will continue to work but is deprecated now.

stgexecinfo

Allows access to details entered by user on Stage Execution Info.

It will not show any default values or FlexFields or WorkFlowInputs that are not set in the Stage Execution Info popup (The Paper Clip on the release dashboard screen)

added in 5.2.0.3
