RuleApp Versioning Policy in Business Console and Rule Designer

Currently, Deployment Configuration in Business Console and Rule Designer do not support RuleApp Versioning Policy.  We need to deploy ruleapp from Business Console that automatically increments the version of the ruleapp when it is deployed.

    please consider using the ruleset versioning policy instead.

    it was decided some time ago, when introducing decision service projects and deployment configurations, to remove the ruleApp versioning policy and focus instead on the ruleset versioning policy.

    The idea behind is that a new ruleApp version should only reflect a major change in the ruleApp (ruleset added or removed, or possibly a new ruleset signature)

    We recommend to use automated ruleset version increment when doing a ruleset deployment that only modifies the logic content inside that ruleset.

    No other client has been asking for ruleApp versioning policy so far.

    Could you consider a switch to ruleset versioning policy ?

    Thank you,
