The Deployments view allows you to see and create Deployments. Deployments are not Associations, but they are similar. Deployments connect payloads to endpoints like Associations, but deployments have more advanced capabilities than their earlier cousins.
We'll use the Deployments view whenever we want to create new, or edit/delete existing deployments. In each case a deployment will define a relationship between payload(s) (the things to install) and the endpoint(s) (the thing to install to).
