Project Lifecycle

As applications go through their lifecycle, multiple versions of the underlying projects can be created. The project versions have different configurations and characteristics depending on the execution mode they are deployed in:

Version Management

Project Versions in Execution Modes

A project version is always created in Test mode. It can be pushed forward from Test to Acceptance to Live, and back from Live to Acceptance to Test. In addition, a version can be pushed directly from Test to Live and vice versa.

Multiple project versions can run concurrently in Test mode as well as in Acceptance mode. In Live mode, only one version is available for productive use.

The execution mode of a subproject is independent of the mode of the main project. An application that is already staged for acceptance may, for example, include subprojects that are still in development.

Test Mode Characteristics

A project version running in Test mode is characterized as follows:

  • Only users with designer access rights are authorized to access and test the application. The designer has access to all resources, is assigned all manual tasks, and receives all notifications sent by the application.
  • The Live content of the defined roles is used.
  • The Test connector configuration is used.

Acceptance Mode Characteristics

A project version running in Acceptance mode is characterized as follows:

  • A set of selected users is authorized to access the application.
  • Each user in Acceptance mode has the same rights as the end users will have in Live mode.
  • The Acceptance content of the defined roles is used.
  • The Acceptance connector configuration is used.

Live Mode Characteristics

A project version running in Live mode is characterized as follows:

  • The version can be accessed by the end users only.
  • The Live content of the defined roles is used.
  • The Live connector configuration is used.
  • If no mode parameter is set when launching the application, the Live mode is set as default.
