Deployment tracking on history page

Deployment tracking on history page

The scenario involves an application team working on deployments, particularly in larger teams with members operating in different shifts. The goal is to enhance visibility and accountability by capturing the reasons behind each deployment. To achieve this, we propose enforcing a comment section within the history tab. Here’s how it would work:

  1. Expectation:

    • The expectation would be a "short description" displayed on history page against each deployments..

  2. Enforced Comment Section:

    • When a deployment occurs, the application team is prompted to provide relevant information in a designated comment section.(for example Change Number, Incident number etc..)

  3. Benefits:

    • Traceability: Having comments tied to each deployment allows for easy tracing back to the reasons behind specific changes.

    • Collaboration: Team members can collaborate by sharing insights and context within the comment section.

    • Shift Handovers: During shift changes, the incoming team can quickly understand recent deployments based on the comments
