Step 5: Create an application

Prerequisite: Step 4: Map an agent to an environment

This step explains how to create an application that will manage the helloWorld component.

Note: An application is a mechanism that brings together all the deployment components. It maps components to the relevant resources and identifies the target environments for the deployment. For details, see Manage applications.

To create the helloWorld application:

  1. Navigate to Management > Applications.

  2. On the Applications page, click Create. The Create Application dialog box opens.

  3. Specify the details for the new application:

    Field Description
    Name Enter the application's name, for example, helloWorld_app.
    Description (Optional) Enter additional information to identify the application.
    Notification Scheme

    Accept the default value (None).

    Notification schemes define when to send out notifications and who should receive them. For details, see Configure notification schemes.


    Accept the default value (None) to indicate that a single environment is used in this deployment.

    A pipeline is a sequence of environments that an application runs through. Each environment in a pipeline represents a stage in deploying an application. For details, see Manage pipelines.

    Require versions for snapshot components

    Leave this check box cleared.

    Selecting this option prevents an application process with a snapshot from running if any of the necessary snapshot components do not have versions. For details about snapshots, see Snapshots.

  4. Click Build Out. The helloWorld application page opens where you can configure the application.
