CloudCenter 4.8 has reached End of Life (EOL) as of November 14, 2018. See End of Support Notices for additional context.

Deployment (Job) Details

Overview

Applications are deployed on the cloud by submitting jobs. As part of the deployment, VMs are launched on the cloud with services initialized as specified in the application definition.

Selecting the Relevant Environment

When deploying applications effective CloudCenter 4.9.0, you can only select the cloud that pertains to your environment and application. If you select a Container-based Deployment Environment, you are presented with the list of pure container clouds or hybrid clouds which also have a configured container. The following screenshot shows an example.

Correspondingly, you only see the available instance type(s) for the selected Environment(s). This is particularly visible with the use of MilliCPUs for container-based instance types and virtual CPUs for VM-based instance types. The following screenshot shows an example.

View Runs

When you launch an application, the corresponding job details for each run are displayed on a per-instance basis in the Deployments > Application Deployments page in the CCM UI. Filter the list based on the Deployment state or by Application. You can resize the displayed columns without changing the size of your browser window. The following screenshot shows the Deployment > Application Deployments page.

When you add new deployments, be sure to assign unique names to each deployment, regardless of the state of the application (for example, already deployed, terminated, not terminated and so forth).

Favorite Deployments

Mark any deployment as a favorite by clicking the star icon to the left of the deployment name. All favorite deployments are listed in The Dashboard tab under the  Favorite Deployments section.

See UI Behavior for additional context.

Job Details

The Cloud Name and Cloud Account details are displayed for each tier in the deployment. 

When using the multi-account feature, users deal with multiple accounts for a single deployment and can view the account information for every tier in the Job Details section. The following screenshot shows an example.

When using Hybrid clouds, the information in the Job Details section differs based on the type of cloud.

  • The following screenshot shows an example of a container-based deployment.

  • The following screenshot shows an example of a VM-based deployment.

The Associate Tags field allows you to update the tag for this deployment. To do this, the tag should already be added as specified in the System Tags > Adding a System Tag section.

Click on any deployment listed in the Applications Deployments page to view the Deployment Details for that job run. The following screenshot shows an example.

Indicator ColorApplication Tier Status
Blinking YellowThe application tier is in the pre-initialization state.
Blinking GreenThe application tier is initializing.
Solid GreenThe application tier is up and running.
Solid RedThe application tier has an error.


You can also view the Deployment Details by selecting the Show Deployments option in the dropdown list for the required Application in the Application Profiles page. The following screenshot shows an example.
Either way, the configured details for each page is displayed

Sharing Deployments

Deployments can be shared with users who use SSH/VNC to allow access to the VMs.

Anyone with Manage access for a deployment can Share that deployment with another user. The following screenshot shows an example.

For example, if User X has share permissions, then (s)he can view the shared deployment if permitted (based on the deployment environment Permission Control) and access the VMs using web-based SSH/VNC.

NICs and Node Details

You can view the NICs with their networks, Private IP, Public IP, and validated IPv6 IP addresses by using the GUI and the REST API. See IP Allocation Mode for additional context.

  • UI Access: Drill down further in the Deployment Details page. The following screenshot shows an example of a NIC and its related information.

  • API Access: See Get Job Details (v1) or View Job Details (v2)
