Change Requests

Change management operations are organised using change request sessions.

Note: Make sure you test this process in a DEV environment first, and you are confident with Configuration Manager usage, before bootstraping LIVE or QA environments.

To start a Change Request

  1. Enter the following command: open --source <source_name>--target <target_name>. This creates a new change request with the changerequest.yml file in a new folder.
  2. The change request is then created.
  3. To switch environments or load an existing change request, you can simply use the open --cr <cr_name> command.

A change request will contain the list of changes (e.g. add, delete, update) used in a session and ready to use in a commit.
