Editing an Environment

  1. Click on Application Operations, then click on Environments view and Environments tab.
  2. Select an environment in the Environments grid.
  3. On the Actions ribbon, click on Edit Environment.
  4. In the Environment section, click on Logical Topology.

Note

The two available views, Logical Topology and Deployment Diagram, contain essentially the same application or service templates, but serve different purposes. From Logical Topology, you can add and upgrade services and configure the environment’s settings, while Deployment Diagram gives you a bird’s eye view of the whole deployment scenario, and lets you monitor the environment.

  1. To add another service, click on Add Module.

Note

You can add only a template that has already been published.

  1. Expand either the Services or Applications folder, select a template and its deployment profile check-box, and click on OK.

Note

Visual representations of a service or app, i.e. rectangles, are displayed in the following colors:

  • green (an item has been successfully provisioned);
  • yellow (an item is being processed/provisioned);
  • orange (an item is a deployment group);
  • darkish-grey (an item cannot be validated automatically and is inconsistent with the current template’s settings);
  • red (an item has not been provisioned).
  1. To delete a service from an environment, select it and click on Uninstall on the toolbar.
  2. To upgrade a template, select a green, i.e. provisioned, template and click on Upgrade.

  1. To delete binding, select a binding and click Delete Binding on the toolbar.

  2. Click on Deployment Diagram.

    To view more details, you can click the following subtabs, and, if needed, verify the following:

    • Endpoints - the endpoint’s URL, type, etc.
    • Hosts - the host name (e.g. a Websphere’s name), IP, Fully Qualified Domain Name (FQDN), etc. Note that on this subtab, no filtering is applied, and you can view all of the environment’s host VMs (on the Endpoints subtab, only the selected endpoint’s hosts are shown).
    • Services - service type and version.
  1. To Start or Stop a service, click the plus sign plus displayed in the template’s corner, select a service and click on either Start Module or Stop Module.

Note

You might have to stop a service if, for example, you want to update the service instance.

  1. In the Advanced section, click on Properties. You may change the following:

    • Name - the name of the environment.
  2. In the Advanced section , in Security Profile click on User Profile. You may select the roles, and the respective rights, of those users who will have access to the environment and its templates.

  3. To save the changes, click on OK; alternatively, click Provision Environment.
