Getting started with creating resources#
Resources associate agents with components and, after they are mapped to an application environment, provide deployment targets.
The following diagram outlines the typical steps for creating and running a deployment:
A resource group associates agents or agent pools with components. A resource group can itself belong to a parent group in a hierarchical collection. A component-type resource can point directly to the agent or agent pool that deploys it or point to another resource in a hierarchical chain of resources. If a resource is part of a hierarchy, it delegates its automation, if any, up the chain until it finds an agent.
Resources, just like the items they represent, can have properties tags.
