Inventory Tracking

Keeping track of all the assets and files that need to be deployed can be a daunting task when done manually. Serena Deployment Automation does it all for you seamlessly with reports to show you at-a-glance what is deployed where and the differences between them.

Track Actual vs Desired

You can track the components, snapshots, and configurations deployed to any resource by using the inventory management features provided in Deployment Automation. You can view inventory information on Inventory tabs within the following entities:

  • A selected component: Shows applications and resources with that component.
  • A selected resource: Shows the current inventory of component versions for that resource and the configuration inventory, which includes properties for all levels, for that resources 
  • A selected environment: shows component version inventory within each resource for that environment. Just toggle the view to see versions by component or by resources

Inventory management will also provide you with an option to control the compliance of inventory on the environments based on success or failure of the deployment process. For example, if you are trying to install a specific version of the component and the deployment fails, you can remove that component from the inventory,  so that it isn't added and the environment becomes non-compliant. If it is successful, you can add the desired component version to the inventory and the environment remains compliant.
