Fulfillment Functional Component
The Fulfillment functional component ensures that fulfillment activities are documented and automated for the resources that support the Digital Product Instance. Such activity items may include provisioning, deploying, modifying, actions (i.e., start, stop, etc.), decommissioning, and so on. This manages the routine deployment and configuration activities into automated/semi-automated Fulfillment Book. The automated/semi-automated fulfillment scripts are often included in the release package. The Fulfillment functional component may receive these deployment scripts from Release Composition functional component for the product deployment.
