A deployer can click the notification to review the components of the promoted update profile and decide whether to accept or discard the changes. When you accept the changes, vCloud Application Director performs a compatibility check between the promoted update profile and the deployment before applying the changes.

Verify that your user account has the ROLE_DEPLOYER deployer role assigned to it.

Verify that at least one update profile is promoted to one or multiple deployment environments. See Promote an Update Profile.

1

On the vCloud Application Director title bar, click the drop-down menu and select Deployments.

2

Locate a deployment with a notification icon (Icon representing an update profile is available to promote to one or multiple development environments) and click the icon.

The updates summary page opens.

3

Click Apply to accept the promoted update profile.

vCloud Application Director checks the compatibility between the promoted update profile and the current updated deployment. If severe incompatibilities are found, you can cancel or discard the notification. If non-severe incompatibilities such as an update profile existing with same name in the deployment is found, then you can continue to apply, discard or cancel the notification.

4

In the wizard, review the new values or configurations in the Application Properties tab and Execution Plan tab and select Apply Update.

5

(Optional) If you do not want to apply the new values or configurations in the promoted update profile, select Discard Update.

The promoted update profile is discarded and the notification icon (Icon representing an update profile is available to promote to one or multiple development environments) is removed from the deployment.

You can select another deployment with a notification and continue to review and apply or discard the promoted update profile.
