Lifecycle Manager—Overview

Lifecycle Manager is an industry-leading API lifecycle management platform that automates machine- and role-based validations and signoffs across the software development lifecycle.

Initial installation is via the deployment platform. After installation, use the Lifecycle Manager user interface to customize asset governance processes and extend the standard behavior through an event-driven extension mechanism.

Library configuration is managed through an XML document known as the Library Process Configuration (LPC) document, which defines the structure of Lifecycle Manager's event- driven processes and additionally defines extended functionality. The Library Configuration engine is built on the Lifecycle Manager Event Notification Framework. As such, it allows customers to define listeners that encapsulate custom behavior and specify the events and conditions that will cause the behavior to be invoked on a per-library basis.
