Creating header/note tasks

Header tasks represent organization elements that you can add to deployment plans. If you create a task group, you might identify the group with a header task. Header tasks can have dependencies like any other task.

About this task

You can organize task groups with header/note tasks. You can create a note by adding information about a group or task. When you import a deployment plan from IBM UrbanCode Release, segment tasks are bracketed by note-type Start Segment and End Segment tasks. Segment dependencies are represented by dependencies to End Segment tasks.

To create a header task, complete the following steps:


  1. On the Deployment plan detail page, click Create Task.
    If you want to insert a task at a specific position in the plan, select a task before using the Create Task. The new task is inserted above the selected task.
  2. On the Create Task dialog box, in the Type list, select Header / Note.
  3. In the Name field, enter a name for the task.
  4. In the Description field, enter or paste a description.
    You might enter a note, a reminder, or other instructions in the field.
  5. Click Save.
    The task is inserted into the deployment plan.
