Launch-Composition

Create a test environment with its dependencies in Codefresh infrastructure

The launch composition step provides the ability to launch long term running environments that can live outside the context of a running pipeline. You can use this step to automate your test environment creation through a codefresh.yml file instead of manually launching an environment from the UI.

Note that “launch-composition” creates a permanent test environment that keeps running even after a pipeline has finished. If you just want temporary test environments that run only while a pipeline is running, see service containers and the documentation page for integration tests.
