It is important to understand the layout of an applications with respect to Release Automation (RA) before carrying out an administration activity. It is often misinterpreted that the agents are mapped to an application, this is a correct view from end user perspective but from administration perspective it is not accurate. Each application is made of various environments and each environments will be made up of various server types. It is the server types where actually the agents are mapped.
The above administration activity can be done via two interfaces exposed by CA Release Automation (CARA) product. Some interfaces are readily available in dashboard in forms of report and other administration activity can be carried using the exposed OpenAPI service. Please find details of each below.
