Deployment package file that Runtime validates to install and update the workstation solution
In the Pega Robotic Automation Architect Essentials Assessment you can see this question:
You have deployed an updated version of a project. Which deployment package file does Runtime validate to install and update the workstation solution?
The answer in the test is "The .openspan file", but in the Student Guide we can read:
The Runtime services compares the local version of the Manifest file to the deployment location of the Manifest file. If there are any differences between the files, the deployment location file wins and overwrites the local version of the solution files. This logic allows for an update to a new solution version or a rollback to a previous solution version
The Manifest file contains the version number. Runtime uses the version number to determine if the package differs from the last version run. If the versions are different, Runtime downloads and extracts the updated project files.
So, the good answer for the test should be "The manifest file", right?
