Deploying and managing application editions with Intelligent Management

The application edition manager controls interruption-free production application deployments. Interruption-free deployment prevents loss of service when you install an application update in your environment.

Before you begin

If you are a user with either a monitor or an operator role, you can only view the edition manager information. If you have the role of configurator or administrator, you have all the configuration privileges for the application edition manager.
