Environment Dependencies

Learn how you can manage dependencies between your applications and environments in Golive.

What are Environment Dependencies?

Environment dependencies refer to the external environments that are required for another environment to run properly.

Why it is important?

Managing environment dependencies is important in software delivery because any issues with these dependencies can cause the application to malfunction or fail.

Before running tests, QA teams should always ensure that all the necessary dependencies are available. Efficiently managing test environment dependencies will reduce the overall testing time.

Managing dependencies also improve collaboration and coordination: team members are more aware of impacts that a task performed on an environment may have on other dependent environments used by other teams.
