Automatically Refresh LifeTime Plan without the need to rebuild it

I think it will be amazing if LifeTime have the capability to auto refresh when we have our plan already built.

Sometimes when i am building my plan to promote the code between environments and happens that some of the dependencies are outdated for some reason, there's no chance to auto refresh the already built plan.

I need to open the outdated dependencies, correct the problems and then rebuild my plan all over again (and sometimes it becomes boring because we have a huge list of Applications).

Hi Pedro,

We've been discussing your idea internally since we are probably solving part of your scenario :\

So,  we'll release a feature for you to refresh a plan, meaning you can add updates from source environment (like new tags or application changes) into your plan without discarding it and creating it again. 

If we now understand your idea correctly, you'll still need to refresh outdated dependencies outside, using Service Cente for example. But then you won't need to recreate your plan. 


Please let us know if we are capturing well your scenario and if you understand what we are doing. 


Cheers

Hi João, that's exactly what you've described! :)

Hi Pedro,


The capability to refresh the plan is already available in the LifeTime September CP1 release. So you can now add updates from source environment (like new tags or application changes) into your plan without discarding it and creating it again.

Although you don't need to recreate the plan again you still need to fix/refresh the outdated dependencies first. That part I would say that is related to this idea: https://www.outsystems.com/ideas/159/auto-refresh-espaces

Let me know if I'm covering the full picture.


Thank you

Hi João,

Thanks a lot. I have been using that feature already!

Awesome work!!

Cheers,

Hello,

Something that would improve this idea, would be the ability to refresh a LifeTime deployment plan with LifeTime API v2.

The current API has the commands “start”, “continue” and “abort” for deployment plans, you could add “refresh”.
