Managing Deployments

GRAX Platform Deployments represent a GRAX environment deployed to any cloud account. Deployments are managed through the GRAX Platform UI. This section will cover the following topics:

  • Creating new deployments
  • Managing existing deployments
  • Deleting deployments

Creating Deployments

To create a new deployment, navigate to the Deployments page in the GRAX Platform UI. Click Create Deployment in the top right corner of the page. On the deployment type selection page, choose the option that best suits your use case and cloud expertise. If you've selected a deployment type that requires a cloud account, you will be prompted to connect your account. See here for more information about connections and how to connect specific cloud providers. Once you have a valid connection, click Create to begin the deployment process.

Options are available prior to submission that allow you to choose which region you'd like to deploy the application within as well as sizing and administrative settings. Once you've submitted the deployment, the GRAX Platform will begin provisioning the environment. Once the deployment is complete, you will be able to access the deployed GRAX application by clicking Open on the deployment's details page.

Updating Deployments

The following statements are not applicable to Nonstandard Deployments, for which the infrastructure is not managed by GRAX.

To manage an existing deployment, navigate to the deployments list and click details for the deployment you'd like to manage. From there, you can view the deployment's infrastructure status, access the deployed GRAX application, update the GRAX code, resize the infrastructure, and even delete the deployment.

  • To update the GRAX application, click Redeploy.
  • To resize the infrastructure, click Update and choose the desired size.
  • To set the administrator password for web access, click Update and enter the desired password.
