How to decide what is included in a single deployment?


So deployments allow us to put together multiple payloads for deployment in an easy way and then edit these deployment rules in bulk. Great! But, which things should I put in the same deployment?


The question above applies whether you are creating brand new deployments, or converting existing associations to deployments. In either case, we need to answer the question, “what content belongs together?”


And how we evaluate this is to look at two primary things:

  1. What is the least amount of work for us, the FileWave Administrator, and

  2. The metadata of a deployment:

    1. Licensing options

    2. Timing Options

    3. Delivery Options

    4. Fileset/Payload Revisions

    5. Destination platform

Both of the above questions are broken down in the following articles referenced below.
