Deployment Manager

The Deployment Manager is located at the bottom of the dashboard and is used to store applications to simplify their subsequent deployment into your environments. There are two subsections to provide support for the following deployment types:

  • Archive – stores the application packages, which can be uploaded from your local machine or any external link
  • Git / SVN – saves the link to your project within the remote Git / SVN repository and the appropriate access credentials (if needed)

Application Archives #

1. The Archive tab within the Deployment Manager section allows to view all application archives stored at your account. The list provides the following information:

  • Name – name of the uploaded archive
  • Comment – custom note for your application
  • Size – size of the application archive
  • Upload Date – date of the archive addition to the Deployment Manager
