10.4 Setup for Test & Production Systems GitHub (single Target instance)

This set up is for when you will be deploying your application into your own test and production systems, whether they are on-premise or in the Cloud and using GitHub for the git distribution repository.  (Also see 10.3 Setup for Test & Production Systems (Target is a LANSA Stack in AWS) and 10.5 Setup for Test & Production Systems GitLab (single Target instance)).  Deployment to Test, and especially to Production should be a controlled act from a specific machine that is solely used for build and deployment.

Only the very latest Web technology is supported. WAMs and older technologies are not supported, though older technologies may be configured to work. If you wish to use older technologies you will need to enter into a beta agreement with LANSA. Please contact LANSA Support for more details.

Presumed Knowledge

First some set up is required. It requires manual configuration. As such you require some skills in using Git, GitHub, and the Windows command line to configure it correctly. If you are an existing GitHub user it should not be difficult for you to do this successfully. It is also preferable that you have used Git Extensions previously.

Overview

You will need to create the central git repository and install and set up the target system. This is done on a one to one basis. That is, each Build Machine has its own central git repository and target system. Thus environments are isolated from each other and, once configured, can use DevOps deployment at any time without conflicting with other deployed applications.
