Deploy an App

Once you have configured the app to have the settings you want and saved it, you can push it through the deployment stages in the following order:

  1. Development

  2. Testing (optional)

  3. Staging (optional)

  4. Production

At each stage, a copy of the application is created and given an ID. Once the app reaches Production, it gets an ID that remains with the app and can be sent to end users. An app only moves in one direction through the stages. Any changes must be made in Development and then moved through the stages again to Production.
