Understanding Deployments

Devin streamlines how FileMaker projects are deployed and managed across various Environments, from development to production. Understanding deployments and the strategies for effectively managing them is crucial for maintaining the integrity and performance of your FileMaker applications.

In Devin, any fmp12 file that exists outside the development server is considered a deployment. These deployments are essentially live versions of your projects, situated in different stages of the development lifecycle (environments). Each deployment links back to a corresponding file in the development environment, as well as a release branch. This way you can link a branch to a specific environment which allows you to setup custom deployment flows.

For instance, the below image shows an example where a UAT deployment is linked to a test branch, meaning that whenever there is a new release on the test branch, it can be deployed to UAT.
