Beginning with Deployment Manager 4.6.x, you can create and run data migration pipelines to automatically export simulation data from a production environment into a simulation environment for testing. You can also use a job scheduler rule to run pipelines during a specified period of time.
Simulation tests provide you with significant insight into how your changes to decision logic affect the results of your strategies. To ensure that simulations are reliable enough to help you make important business decisions, you can migrate a sample of your production data to a dedicated simulation environment for testing.
When you create a data migration pipeline, you configure the production and simulation environment details and also the application information for which you are creating the pipeline.
The following figure shows an example of creating and configuring a data migration pipeline in Deployment Manager.
You can run a pipeline manually either from the Pipelines page, the Data migration pipelines page, or from within the pipeline details.
For more information about simulation pipelines, see Simulation pipeline overview.
