Deployment Automation clients include the following:

  • Web browser-based user interface: a Rich Internet Application (RIA) that maintains much of its functionality in the web browser
  • Command line: provides most of features found in the Web browser-based user interface


  • communicate with the server through HTTP or HTTPS
  • may be deployed locally, on the same LAN as the server
  • may be deployed remotely
  • interact with RESTful (representational state transfer) services on the server as needed

Note: WebSocket communication is used for notification counters shown in the upper right of the web browser-based user interface.
