By default, the Integration Manager defines a single deployment in every new application. You can use this default deployment if your product or solution is deployed on a single data center.
If your product or solution is deployed on multiple data centers, you must define additional deployments.
If your product or solution is installed on a local network, you do not need to define a deployment. This type of product deployment is sometimes called an On Prem installation.
The default deployment is provisioned to use the Instructions only endpoint registration method. You can change the registration method to Direct connect when you specify the provisioning method for the application.
