Hi @ashwinipatil007,
It's not clear your architecture:
Have you a Search Head Cluster or not?
Deployer is a mandatory component of a Search Head Cluster, if you haven't it you haven't a search Head Cluster and probably you're speaking of a Deployment Server.

If instead you have a Search Head Cluster and you would deploy an app on Search Heads without using Deployer, you cannot do it because you can deploy apps on Search Heads only by deployer.
