You have the option to launch your Run directly from a System or Scenario without building a Deployment. The preferred method is to build out a Deployment, and Launch your Run from the Deployment.
To launch a "Quick Build", navigate to your System or Scenario, click the "Launch" button, and follow the Run wizard to launch your Run!
Quick Build is designed for convenience and speed, but has a few catches to keep in mind:
- Run history is maintained on Deployments, so once a Run launched from a Quick Build is released, the run history, logs, and custom properties used vanish into the void.
- After a Quick Build is released, there is no "Re-Run" button. Deployments have a really convenient feature to "Re-Run" with the previous configuration, but this is not available after a Quick Build is released.
- Occasionally, "Quick Build Orphans" are left behind, and can add a dependency preventing users from deleting the System or Scenario that was Quick Built. Under the hood, CONS3RT creates temporary Scenarios and Deployments for the Quick Build, and occasionally they get orphan'ed. The CONS3RT Team cleans these up every 2 weeks as part of our upgrade process. If you have a particular dependency you'd like to remove (now), let us know and we are happy to clean them out for you.
