Release Management

June 3, 2016

A software release is the sum of the stages of development and maturity of a software: ranging from its initial development to its eventual release, and including updated versions of the released version to help improve software or fix bugs still present in the software. A release contains a group of commits that are bundled and published at the same time.

Create a release

Assumming that you have created at least one enviroment and have made a few commits on your project, you may now create a release and publish changes. However, you may want to review the changes first before you publish; we will show you how to do that, but first let us create a release.

To make a release go to the Work tab and click on the bookmark icon next to a commit. You will be prompted to add release details.

Note: If you only have one environment you will not see the starred clip, you will have to add another environment to be able to create a release.

Also note that Clicking on a commit at any point means you will include all history commits up to that point.

After clicking on the commit you will get this release form, complete it and save:


Before you can publish your changes it is advisable to review the changes first. To do that just click on the release ID(highlighted in grey) and you will see the new changes in green while the replaced content is highlighted in red.


All commits will be wrapped in one release, when you are happy with the changes you may click the publish button and confirm. Visit the IP address of the server you added under that environment, you should see the same results you get when you run localhost.
