Continuous Integration & Continuous Delivery

Current Deployment Process

Challenges

  • With the traditional deployment approach the turnaround time required between various environments is extended. Example: after QA sign-off a deployment needs to be scheduled for UAT
  • Due to lengthy regression test cycles, regimented quarterly release cycles are available, which leads to significant waiting time
  • Monitoring/maintaining multiple environments with up-to-date code
  • Difficulty in establishing coordination between development, testing, and operations teams Example: missed status update in Jira but code is deployed and available for testing
  • Resource availability/dependency at a particular phase of the project lifecycle

Future Process

Solution Overview

  • CI/CD framework is used to automate entire deployment journey
  • Developers and testers work simultaneously, and Jira acts as source of truth
  • Testers write Cucumber scripts, and tag with Jira ticket number and push the code to GitHub
  • Developer provides solution to the problem in Appian and pushes the code to Test environment using Appian's 'Compare and Deploy' feature
  • Jenkins takes over after this point, connecting all systems and triggering next activity in workflow. Outcomes are monitored and updates shown in Jira

Benefits

  • The model supports BDD(Behaviour Driven Development) approach.Both testing and development team can start working together
  • Jira Integration - helps in keeping track of work, sends real time notifications and alerts
  • Highly Flexible - pipeline can be customize based on customer's need
  • Automatically triggers DevOps pipeline once developer integrated the code on test environment
  • CI/CD framework provides Graphical representation of cucumber test cases
  • Capable of running full regression suite before production deployment
  • Release can contain multiple builds e.g. database scripts and customization files
  • The model leverages Appian's Compare and Deploy utility for continuous integration
  • Solution leverages Appian's Programmatic Deployment API rather than Automated Deployment Manager plugin(soon to be deprecated)
