Create and deploy a new instance

You can create and deploy a new service instance from a service design. For more information about sequenced designs, see Sequenced Designs.

  1. In the Deployments area, click Deploy a New Instance. The dialog appears. Enter the following general information:
    1. Deployment Name — Enter a deployment name. The service instance created from this action will have the same name as the deployment.
    2. Description (optional) — Enter a description of the deployment.
    3. Resource Environment Filter — From the list, select one or more resource environments to use for provisioning. For more information, see Resource offerings for sequenced designs.
  2. Enter properties for the new instance:
    • The design associated with the instance appears on the canvas. Select a service component from the design, and modify the properties as needed. For more information, see Service components.
    • You can change the properties of multiple components in the design. The message icon appears next to modified components in the design. Click on the icon for details about what changes were made.
  3. Click Deploy.

Run a user operation from a component in a deployment

You can run a user operation on a component in an active deployment.

  1. Navigate to a deployed instance in a service design.
  2. Click on the Topology tab, and select a component from the canvas or the list on the right panel.
  3. From the bottom of the right panel, click Actions, and use the list to select a user operation to run.
  4. A list of the properties for the user operation appears. Modify the properties or accept the defaults, and click Execute Action. You can execute another user operation when the first one completes.

See User operations for service components for information on how to create a user operation.

Cancel a deployment

To cancel a deployment, click the gear icon to the right of the deployment you want to cancel, and select Cancel Deployment. Click Yes to confirm the cancellation.

A canceled deployment is moved to Offline state.

Delete a deployment

When you delete a deployment, it is removed from the list on the Deployments tab, and all of its references are marked internally as being in Retired state. Once in a Retired state, a deployment can be deleted permanently from the database using the purge tool. For more information about purge tool usage, see the Cloud Service Automation Configuration Guide.

To delete a deployment, click the gear icon to the right of the deployment in Offline state that you want to delete, and select Delete Deployment. Click Yes to confirm the deletion.
