Development, test, and operations teams may assign quality statuses to an application version to notify stakeholders to indicate that version has met specific quality requirements. Those statuses can be applied manually in the tool or through an integration with an external system, such as, a REST API call or a deploy plug in step. By integrating with other quality tools IBM UrbanCode Release provides a repository for quality results coming from many different testing groups, phases of testing, and testing tools. For example, you can see integration testing results, automated UI testing, security and performance testing all in a single view.
Once a lifecycle has been defined and an automated deployment plan put in place, it is possible to implement an auto progression of application versions through the environment pipeline for continuous delivery scenarios. (View more here)
