Application Profiles Page

The Application Profiles page is where you can create a new application profile and where any application profiles created by you or shared with you are listed. A sample Application Profiles page with some application profiles is shown below.

The right side of the page header contains three icons and one button:

  • Search. Clicking on this icon replaces the icon with a text entry space for the search string. Entering text in this data entry field cause the list of application profiles in the body of the page to be limited to those that contain the entered search string somewhere in the application profile name or description.
  • Import. Clicking on this icon opens up a file selection window of your desktop OS. You can then search for a compatible zip file containing the exported version of the application profile you want to import.
  • Export. Clicking on this icon causes a dialog box to be displayed where you can select some or all of the application profiles you have access to. After selecting the profiles you want to export, click Export. This causes a zip file for each of the application profiles to be saved in the directory of your choice.
  • Model. Clicking on this button begins the process of creating a new application profile. See Create an Application Profile for details.

The main body for the Application Profile page displays all application profiles created by you and shared with you. Clicking on an application profile card displays the Deploy form which lets you deploy the application to a deployment environment. See Deploy an Application for details.  

When you hover over an application profile card, a drop-down menu icon appears in the lower right of the card. Click the drop-down menu icon to display the application profile action menu as shown in the figure below.


The actions listed in the dropdown depend on your permissions relative to the application profile. The table below lists all actions available for an application profile and the required user permissions. If you created the application profile, you implicitly have manage and deploy permission for it and therefore can perform all actions on it. If the application profile is created by another user and shared with you, the actions you can perform are based on the permissions you were granted when that profile was shared with you.
