Deployments page displays the Deployments widget which provides a list of all deployments
and enables you to create, update and delete deployments and execute workflows.
You can list only deployments created basing on specific blueprint by selecting the blueprint from Resource Filter widget below Create Deployment button.
You can also use Search input inside Deployments widget to filter deployments list.
Each deployment in the list includes details about the attached blueprint, when the deployment was created (if it was updated icon indicating that will be shown near creation date) and the nodes on which it is deployed.
You can also quickly check status and logs of the last workflow executed on the deployment by hovering over the status icon in the top left corner of deployment. Depending on the type of the execution there are additional action buttons there.
The last execution status is indicated as follows:
- - Failed - execution has failed
- - In Progress - execution is in progress (meaning that it is in one of the following states: pending, started, cancelling, force_cancelling, kill_cancelling)
- - Cancelled - execution has been cancelled
- - Waiting - execution has been either scheduled or queued and it is waiting
- - Completed - execution has been completed
The status of the deployments’ node instances is indicated as follows:
- Blue - the number of node instances that are not initialized
- Yellow - the number of node instances that are in active state (one of: initializing, creating, created, configuring, configured, starting, stopping, stopped and deleting)
- Green - the number of node instances that are started
- Black - the number of node instances that are deleted
