In this approach, you have a staging branch where you make changes to a workflow. This change triggers a Cloud Build configuration that deploys a test staging workflow and runs some staging tests against it. If all tests pass, Cloud Build deploys the staging workflow. After more manual testing of the staging workflow, you merge changes from the staging branch to the main branch. This change triggers the same Cloud Build configuration to deploy a test production workflow, run more production tests, and deploy the production workflow if all tests pass.
This approach enables you to have an automated and staged rollout of workflow changes.
