A deployment job was submitted with the option:
Create the deployment and: Execute pre-deployment step immediately.
The deployment gets submitted and we scheduled it to be executed at a specific date and time. But the job was executed before its scheduled time.
CA Release Automation v184.108.40.20640
The job was manually executed.
Since the job was manually executed there is no resolution for this problem. However, if you need to understand who executed the deployment you can do this via the details of the deployment screen. Do do this navigate to the Releases -> Deployments page and click on the link for the deployment in question to view information regarding the deployment. On the right side it will show you details of the deployment. Included in those details are the "Deployment Started" property, "Deployment Schedule", Duration, Executer, and others. The Executer field will reflect the user who manually executed the deployment job.
