Creating a Release

In the Config Management module, this function allows you to create a release of an integration branch or a feature branch. Creating a release means that the changes that are incorporated into the application in the feature/integration branch are stable. After the user creates a release of the integration branch, the release is merged into the master branch.

The master branch runs in the production environment. After the release is merged into the production branch, the newly added features, patches, and changes become available in the production environment.
