Automate promotion process. - 06/01/16 11:39 AM

We develop our forms and watch changes on a development server, and then promote to production. Our IT auditors do not like developers deploying changes in production. Deployments to production should be done by another group, which deploys .Net, HTML, Java changes via an automated scripting(Octopus).

Copying forms, ptks, scripts be pretty straight forward. My question is how would one go about importing watch processes via a script? Does Planet Press have any APIs that could be called? We currently open Planet Press Watch, rename the process that is changing, inactivate the process, and then import the new process. Copy forms across, open the form, and deploy to Watch. An automated process would then have to save watch, and then deploy to the .cfg.
