After you have successfully finished testing your Zapp, it is time to move it into Production. This article provides the key steps you should follow when publishing your Zapp.
Update the Zapp URL
As a best practice, Capriza recommends building your Zapp in a test environment that, while similar, is separate from the production environment and contains test data. Once Zapp development and testing are complete, you need to point your Zapp to the production environment your end users will be accessing. To do so, you simply need to change the Zapp's URL within the Capriza Dashboard. Step-by-step instructions can be found in this article.
An additional round of testing is recommended using test accounts in the production environment to account for any discrepancies between the two environments.
Provide Your Customer Success Manager with Monitoring Information
The Capriza NOC team will proactively monitor your Production-version Zapp to ensure runtime and end-to-end service availability. Prior to Go Live, please provide your Customer Success Manager with the information detailed in this article so that the correct people may be contacted in case an outage or other service disruption is detected.
Define Distribution Groups
Published Zapps are distributed to users within your organization based on membership in a Group. Prior to pushing your Zapp to Production, you should define the group or groups to which it should be available. In general, we recommend specifying a smaller "Pilot" group of users for initial rollout as well as the overall group or groups. Please see Managing Groups and Managing Users.
Release to Production
After receiving feedback from your pilot group users and making any additional enhancements, you are now ready to release to Production. To do so so, click the three dots at the end of the Zapp version and select "Release to Production."
The following popup will surface.
Click the "+" icon to select Distribution Groups, and click "Apply" to confirm your selections.
Click "Release Zapp." A "Production" tag will now be visible on the Zapp version.
