4.1. Creating Application Life Cycle Environments

An Application Life Cycle Environment represents a step, or stage, in a promotion path through the Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC). The first part of this example configures two Life Cycle Environments: Dev; and QA. The second part of the example creates a Content View for use with those environments.

Procedure 4.1. To Create an Application Life Cycle Environment:

  1. Click ContentLife Cycle Environments to open the Life Cycle Environment Paths screen.
  2. Click Add New Environment to display the New Environment page. The Library is the origin of all content that you can use in your environments.
  3. Type Dev in the Name field; the label is automatically populated with the same name, but you can change it to suit your needs. You can add a description of your environment if desired.
  4. Click Save to save the new environment and return to the previous page.
  5. Click Add New Environment again and this time create an environment called QA.
  6. Click Save.
