A deployment is a configuration for one or more edges, instructing the edge which assets should be deployed and/or synchronized between platform and edge.
When configuring Edges, it is often required to provide the Edge access to a subset of code services, data collections, and other assets. Establishing a minimum subset of assets to deploy and/or sync to Edge ensures optimum performance and network utilization.
Deploy - An asset is deployed from platform to edge when edge starts up.
Sync - An asset is deployed, and then any future change on Edge or Platform will be synced with both platform and Edge.
Each asset can be configured for all assets of a type, such as ‘All Collections’, or a subset of a assets, for example, “only the collection:CollectionA”
Most common is configuration is to deploy code services, and sync collections:
