(optional) Load a custom Deployment Descriptor file

The BCD deploy command allows to add and extra parameter named deploy.json to specify which resources have to be deployed, and with which policy. See Deploy Living App artifacts | Deployment Descriptor file for more info.

When used, if a deploy policy is declared in DEPLOY_JSON, it overrides the other Development or Production Policies.

To use the deployment descriptor, enter the content of the deploy.json in the DEPLOY_JSON optional field.
