We have never been able to get our BCC deployment production timer to work. Since we want to deploy projects at midnight, someone has to manually deploy the timer at midnight. Here are the instructions we were given on setting this up:
Click “Ready for Review”
Click “ Approve Content”
Click “Approve and deploy to staging”
Click “ Accept staging deployment”
Click “Approve for production deployment”
Go to Admin Console
Go to Production
Click “To do”
Check box next to project you wish to set a time for
Click “Deploy selected projects”
Enter date/time for deployment
What happens from here is that the project moves to the last step of production, but it never takes the final step. Therefore, the changes in the project show on the site, but because it is stuck in the last step the project interferes with feeds and other projects.
The whole purpose of that step is to verify the deployment or reject if something is not fine in production. It makes sense to perform this step manually because after this step, project cannot be reverted back.
But if you do not want to have that step, you can modify the workflow to remove action " Verify Production Deployment " and add actions " Check in project assets"," Complete Project ", "Complete Process".
