Deployment Architecture

using deployment server on a search head

My plan was create a search head with a basic app for each department. Users are allowed to save search results in in the department app. What I am seeing is the the saved searched are deleted after updating the app on the deployment servers.

I created a very simple app test2

test2:
bin default

test2/bin:
README

test2/default:
app.conf

Then saved a search, changed it to be owned by the app, so I had a test2/local/savedsearch.conf, but after updating the version in default/app.conf and redeploying this file disappears.

So unless I am doing something wrong, the deployment server process doesn't honor the app/local or the metadata/local.meta files and deletes the whole app directory, rather than just update the files in the directory
