The Management Console is a web interface for Helion Stackato. Using the same
API as the
stackato CLI client, it provides access to a subset of
features for deploying, scaling, and configuring applications as well as
monitoring quota usage, and viewing logs.
The interface displays more options and settings for administrators than it does for regular end users. The features described below are available to end users. See the Helion Stackato Admin Guide for information on the Management Console view for Admins.
The top-level page of the Management Console displays quick links to the most used resources and views:
The Applications list is accessible from the top menu. It shows all applications deployed under the current user's organizations.
The list shows:
The list can be sorted by name or state, and filtered by:
The list includes applications deployed to all Spaces in the current user's organizations, even those for which the user may not have access. Applications in such Spaces are viewable, but no changes can be made to them.
Clicking on the application name opens its Application View.
The top navigation of the Application view gives the name and status of the application followed by its organization or space. The view includes the following tabs:
RUNNING. The possible states are:
DOWN: Instance has been created but is not registered yet. This is typically a transient state that occurs when a new application instance is provisioned or an existing application instance taken down (via app autoscaling).
STARTING: Instance is created and in the process of starting.
RUNNING: Instance is running. This is the normal state for a healthy application instance.
FLAPPING: Instance has been repeatedly crashing over a short period of time and the system’s health manager has been automatically trying to restore it. If the health manager is unable to restore the application instance, the instance will transition to the CRASHED state. This typically indicates a problem such as a software bug in the application itself. Check the application logs for the source of the crashes.
CRASHED: Instance is no longer running because it has crashed and could not be successfully restored (the health manager has stopped trying to restart it). As with FLAPPING, this normally indicates a bug in the application.
The organizations list is accessible from the top menu. It shows all organizations which the current user is a member of. The list is searchable by name.
Clicking on any organization name opens the organization view.
The Organizations page shows a list of all organizations that the current user is a member of. Depending on how the Helion Stackato PaaS has been set up, you may only be a member of a single organization.
Clicking on the organization name opens a view of that organization, including the following tabs:
acmeon a PaaS with the address
api.example.orgmight have the domain
Apps: A sortable, filterable list of applications in the Space. Clicking an app name opens an administrative view of that application.
Timeline: A real-time stream of events and discussions relevant to the Space. The creation, update, and deletion of apps and services appear here as notifications which can be commented on by members of the Space. Discussions can be started by any member, tagged, and assigned to an application (which makes the item visible in the Application view).
Quota Usage: If the Space has a space quota plan assigned to it, the usage is compared against it. Otherwise, the Space usage is compared against the organization quota plan.
In both sections, clicking a service name opens a administrative view of that service.
Managers: Managers can invite/manage users, enable features for a given space.
Developers: Developers can create, delete, manage applications and services, full access to all usage reports and logs.
Auditors: Auditors have view only access to all space information, settings, reports, logs.
Clicking a service instance name anywhere in the interface brings up a view of that service instance:
The summary of a service displays: * a description of the service instance type * when it was created * when it was last modified
For more information on a service instance, use the stackato service command.
Lists the credentials for the service instance.
If a the service is a User Provided Service, new credentials can be added, and existing credentials may be edited.
Sample Applications is a collection of ready-to-run applications which can be deployed to Helion Stackato by fetching the source code from Git repositories.
Click Deploy App to start it on Helion Stackato. You will be prompted to choose a Space and Domain for the app if there are multiple options available for you.
