Environments created from a topic branch¶
When you have completed your development work, an environment can be ordered based on your branch which can be shared with a tester to verify the changes done by you.
Before ordering a topic environment, make sure that your branch has been updated with the latest changes in the remote master branch of the customer-solution repository, using git 'Pull' operation. This step is important for the topic environment to be created successfully, and having the latest changes.
Note: Branch name should contain "topic/" for the branch to be listed in the page for ordering topic environments.
Eg: A topic branch name would look like
- Go to the build place page on IFS Lifecycle Experience portal and click on 'Order Environment'
- Select appropriate values from the drop down lists in the Order Environment page
- Click on button 'Order'
Environments created for a particular build place can be seen under the section "Build Place Environments" in the build place home page. Once a request for a new environment is successfully sent, it will be shown here with status as 'Pending'. Status will be updated to 'Completed' or 'Error' at the end of environment creation process.
