User Stories - Deployment Tasks

Updated 7 months ago by Iván Minaya

As of Copado v9.0, deployment task scope has been enhanced. From now, not only the "Manual Task" but also 6 more deployment tasks can be created and managed from the user story view.

Clicking on the "New Deployment Task" Button, the following window will be displayed to manage all the related tasks.

Those users who can access Deployment Tasks can create tasks with the following types by a lightning ready page:

  1. Manual Task
  2. Data
  3. Bulk Data
  4. Delete MetaData
  5. Custom Setting
  6. Apex
  7. URL Callout

For more information about the deployment tasks types, please, read Adding Steps to a Deployment.

If the user story has deployment tasks associated with it, those tasks will be converted to deployment steps when the deployment created against the user story. By using this new feature planning releases will be much easier.

To use this feature users need at least read permission on the Deployment Task object and proper FLS on the dataJSON__c field of the Deployment Task object.

As of v10, the deployment tasks list in the User Story will show the task order, type, status and they will be sorted by order field. Check Copado v10 Release Notes for upgrade instructions.

As of v11, users have the ability to add attachments to the deployment tasks. That way, Copado makes easier to find related attachments when all tasks are combined in a promotion.  This release also includes an Owner field in Manual Tasks in Deployments and User Stories' Deployment Tasks who can be notified via chatter, email or both. Your deployments won't get stuck again waiting for a manual intervention!

How did we do?
