Deployment Automation Manager

The Deployment Automation Manager consists of two tools used for:

  • Automating application deployments in Appian (Automated Import Manager)
  • Change management for Appian applications (Automated Versioning Manager)

Although the tools are best used in conjunction, they can be used independently as well.

  • When is this going to support application customization files? Without this support, we are unable to implement a truly automated deployment solution for Appian applications.

  • the solution already supports such files through the -ac_customization_path. The option is not named correctly and we will make the update but you can use that in your implementation.

  • Any news on Automated Export Manager ?  AFAIK we do not have a CLI/API for Exporting Application/Patch.

    If this is added, it will complete the whole deployment process.
