Application Environments

After you have created environments in the Environments page, you can add them to applications individually or as part of a pipeline.

On an Environments page you can:

  • Add more environments to an application.
  • Scroll a graphical view of environments. Any pipeline is indicated by a shaded box; any individual environments follow.
  • Click an environment name and select from a menu of options for that environment. Only relevant options appear. Possible options are:

    • Run Process: Run an application process in this environment.
    • Promote: Execute the active process in the next environment in the pipeline. This appears only for environments in pipelines are mandatory but without auto promote.
    • View Details: View and configure application-specific settings for the selected environment.
    • Compare: Compare the inventory of up to four environments.
    • Copy: Create an environment based on this environment. Upon creation, the environment is automatically added to the application.
    • Inactivate: Set the environment to inactive status. Inactive environments are not shown in the list by default. You can use the Show Inactive check box to show them in the list.
  • Click Resources to get a quick view of the resources associated with an environment. From there you can click View Resources to open the resources tab for the environment.
  • See a breakdown of the number of environments in online, offline, and unknown status.
  • Click the double arrows beside the pipeline to contract or expand the pipeline in the view.
  • Move individual environments to another position.

    Note: Pipelines cannot be moved. Only one pipeline can be associated with an application at a time and it always comes before any individual environments.

  • Filter the components shown in the list by using search criteria.
  • View environment inventory and compliancy.
