Displays the list of the deployments in the current tenant, according to the user’s permissions. The data can be displayed as a table or list.
Deployment basic information
The Deployments widget displays a list of deployments in the current tenant. The displayed information is: Deployment name, the blueprint which the deployment is derived from, the deployments creation and last update dates, the name of the user who created the deployment, and the number of node instances per state.
Last execution status
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
Node instances status
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
The hamburger menu on the right of every deployment allows performing the following operations:
- Execute workflow on deployment
- Install/Uninstall deployment
- Update deployment
- Set site for deployment
- Delete deployment
Executing a Workflow
- Go to Execute workflow section in the menu and click the workflow you want to execute.
- Provide values for workflow parameters.
- Click Execute.
You can also use Install or Uninstall menu options to execute those specific workflows. For these two workflows you will also be able to track the progress of the execution as at the bottom of the deployment row there will be thin line visible. Progress is calculated based on number of node instances installed (in case of install workflow) or deleted (in case of uninstall workflow).
The color of the line indicates the status of the execution:
- Green - succeeded
- Yellow - in progress
- Red - failed
Each of the default workflows are described in detail here.
