Deploys an Informatica deployment group from a source to target server. The name of the deployment group to be migrated is taken from the build artifact created in the build operation.
Current plugin features are based on migration from one environment to other, which is different than FlexDeploy traditional build - save artifacts - deploy to more than one environment approach. Keep this mind when you plan to use FlexDeploy Informatica plugin.
Using the control file and environment instance properties, you can set up the plugin to perform the task in a number of different ways. For example, if you have 3 environments, you can choose to migrate using static-version deployment groups from dev to test, and dev to prod, or from dev to test, migrating the deployment group as well, and then from test to prod. The latter ensures that the migrated data has been tested before going to production, so it is the recommended approach.
If you select option to move from Dev to Test and Dev to Prod then Source details will be for Dev on all Environment / Instances.

This operation consumes artifacts from the artifacts repository. The artifact contains the name of the deploymentgroup that will be migrated.
This operation will select all available endpoints associated to the environment/instance.
This operation will execute on any one of the selected endpoints and will be random in the determination of which one.
Make sure to setup your domain properly on all the endpoint servers. See https://kb.informatica.com/solution/11/Pages/101878.aspx for information on how to do that.
