We are planning to make use of Deployment Mgr on 7.4. By default this is having 4 stages, Dev, QA, STG and PROD. Why this limitation of only 4 environments and how to over come this. When thought of trying to extend, all of the corresponding rules are internal and final. We are having more than 4 environments, like STG1 and STG2 or Pre-PROD. Can we not make use of Deployment Mrg in our scenario.
Deployment Manager today cannot support more than 4 stages in the application life cycle. We have this on our roadmap though.
However, you can create two pipelines for the same application, have one pipeline publish the artifact and on the other as you start deployment, choose the option "Deploy an existing artifact" and select the artifact generated by the first pipeline
