Deployments are the replacement for Associations as you move forward with FileWave in future. Deployments allow you to set rules for content delivery just as associations do, but deployments also allow you to group “associations” into one place to edit and organize them commonly.
When using the webadmin you will notice that you can not create associations any longer, and will use deployments in their place. But, don’t worry, deployments are easy to understand and use!
You can reference the https://fwkb.atlassian.net/wiki/spaces/KB/pages/4332104 articles to see how to use deployments from scratch, but in the following series of articles we’ll look at how Deployments are specifically different than Associations, and will also cover best practices for converting Associations into deployments.
