Create an Environment

Michael Delzer Updated by Michael Delzer

An environment is an entity where all environment specific configuration data for the User's stack is stored, including cloud account and parameters. Configuration data for the User's stack, such as software license keys or database passwords and also data backups of the User's stacks, are persisted on the User's environment. You can use environments to group multiple stacks for deployments in Development, Staging, and Production environments.

Before creating an environment, make sure the User already have a deployed cloud account.

To create a new environment open Cloud > go down to Environment then choose Create an Environment

Fill in the form view:

  1. Enter a name for the User's environment, such as “stage” or “production”. It should be a valid subdomain.
  2. Optionally enter a description.
  3. Select a deployed cloud account, on which this environment will get provisioned.
  4. Add optional tags for the User's environment to make it more identifiable.
  5. Add teams the User wants to have access to the User's cloud account with the appropriate roles.
  6. Press create.
  7. After an Environment is created you can edit it to add
    1. Add licenses or secrets required for the User's components.
    2. Add Git Token
    3. If the User is not sure yet which components will be used in stacks on this environment, these can be modified later.
    4. Tags and Descriptions can be edited after the environment is created
