Deploying a Portable Software Instance
A Software Management task deployment is a checklist that guides you through the software deployment process, and it is the object in which z/OSMF stores your input and any output generated for each step in the checklist. Deployment is the process you use to install your z/OSMF Portable Software Instance.
When the deployment is complete, your software will be installed, configured, and verified. The configuration and verification will be accomplished with z/OSMF workflows, provided with the portable software instance, performed during the deployment operation.
