Managing Applications From The Web UI

📘

In this section of the Quickstart we'll explore how to manage applications using the Web UI. Feel free to jump to the Managing Applications Using The CLI if you prefer using a terminal instead.

Application management through Shipa is split into two actions; create and deploy. Creating an application means that we are creating a placeholder with all the parameters Shipa needs to deploy just the type of application we need. Once an application is created, we can deploy as many releases as we want.

Create An Application

Please open the Shipa Web UI and select Applications from the left-hand menu.

Click the Create app (+) icon.

Type devops-toolkit as the Name** of the application, and select the Framework and the Team. We'll leave the Platform as-is. It is used for deploying applications from the source code but, since we'll use an already built image, we do not need to choose a Platform*.

Click the Create button.

The newly created image should be listed. It's status is set to Idle since we did not yet deploy anything.

Now we are ready to deploy the first release of the application.

Deploy A Release Of The Application

Please go inside the newly created application by clicking on the Name (e.g. devops-toolkit) or the View icon inside the Actions column.

We can see all the information about the application on that screen. But, for now, we are interested in deploying the first release.

Please click the Deploy icon from the top menu and type vfarcic/devops-toolkit-series:2.7.0 into the Registry Image field. Click the Deploy button.

After a few moments, the first release of the application should be up and running. We can confirm that by clicking the Endpoint link in the Application Details.

Feel free to deploy a second release (you can use vfarcic/devops-toolkit-series:3.0.0 image), explore all the information available, or perform any of the available actions.
