Deployment Manager Trigger Deployment Option
We are planning on using the "Trigger deployment" task in deployment manager to trigger one pipeline from another .
Need some help understanding the how the pipeline that's triggered behaves , does it initiate from the start or does it start from the next stage ?
For example if we have a Dev to QA pipeline which in the QA stage triggers a second pipeline (with the Deploy Current artifact checked) then in the second pipeline will the deployment start from Staging or does it begin from the Development stage.
If you have trigger deployment task with deploy existing artifact checkbox checked, added in pipeline1 at the end, to trigger pipeline2, then pipeline2 would start from QA2 environment. Basically the behaviour will be similar to triggering a deployment of a pipeline with an existing artifact. So the second pipeline would not generate the artifact, but instead use the artifact from the previous pipeline.
