The guide below contains information on the basic management options the CirrusGrid Platform provides for operating with environment groups. Namely, we’ll get deeper insights on how to:
While working on a project, you may need to create more related environments and, obviously, to include them into the group the rest of application components already belongs to.
In order to specify labels for your environment, hover over the Tags column and click the button that appears:
In the opened dialog box, you can define group(s) for this environment (through choosing them via the automatically fetched list of the existing ones), create and assign new tags (just type in the desired name and press Enter) or detach the unrequired ones.
Upon clicking on Apply, all the specified tags will be instantly displayed within the Tags column for the corresponding environment.
Also, if the process of environment creation is called from inside a particular environment group (i.e. when the corresponding tag is displayed within the Env Groups panel at the top), all newly created entities will be automatically included to this group.
Leveraging subgroup allows to divide top-level environment groups into smaller partitions (e.g. to separate computing and data components of a single project or differentiate development stages).
Within the Tags dashboard column, subgroups are displayed in a view of path, where each child item is separated with a slash “/” from the preceding parent one.
Such nesting can include the unlimited number of levels and can be set in the following ways:
In the latter two cases, the Add Group frame will be opened, with the appropriate group being automatically set as a parent.
It is possible to adjust any environment group at your account to make it matching new demands at any time. The appropriate option can be accessed in one of the following ways:
switch to the required group, expand the action list for it and click on Edit
go to the general group management frame (opened with Env Groups > Manage), select string with the appropriate group and choose Edit in the tools pane above
Through both options, the Edit Group dialog box will be opened.
Here, you can adjust all the data you’ve initially specified during this group creation, i.e.:
Click Apply to save the settings.
Note: When performing edits via the management Environment Groups dialog box, you need to Refresh the group list for the new settings to be instantly displayed in this frame.
When the previously created group is no longer needed, you can easily delete it from the dashboard.
Note: The group removal makes no impact on included environments (obviously, except of the corresponding tag detachment). In the same way, upon deleting all environments from a group, the corresponding tag will be still available at the dashboard for choosing.
To remove a group, perform one of the following operations:
To proceed with group removal, confirm this action by selecting Yes in the appeared frame.
In such a way, you can implement all the essential environment group configurations and enhance their divisioning at your dashboard.
