Automation node and bundles

The DSS Automation Node provides a way to separate your DSS development and production environments and makes it easy to deploy and update DSS projects in production.

The DSS Design Node is your development environment, it is the place where you can design your flow and build or improve your data logic. Once this logic has been tested and a new version is ready to be released and deployed, you can export it to your production environment and use production data as inputs in your flow, on the Automation node. Metrics and scenarios on the Automation node allow for better assessment of the performance of your models and more control over your production data.

Deploying projects built in the Design node to the Automation node is done at project-level with project bundles. Bundles are archives that contain a given version of the flow you built in the Design node.
