Application is the reference name for your environment/project which you want to deploy. You can have multiple services in an application. Each service can have there own pipelines to define the sequence of tasks that are needed to be performed.

Suppose you have an application XYZ which has different services like A, B, C etc. You can create the same representation in OES. Application represents overall product whereas services represent individual components in the product. Each service can have multiple pipelines to define different tasks/stages to be executed in order to successfully deploy the application.

To view the list of applications available follow the steps below:

  1. Click Setup in the navigation menu as shown below:

2. The list of applications appears as shown below:

In the above screen, Applications from 2 different sources are listed out. They are:

  • Spinnaker - These applications are originally created in Spinnaker and then imported to OES using the Sync Spinnaker Applications button as shown below:

This feature helps you to manage the applications created in Spinnaker within OES. So whenever you make any changes to the application in Spinnaker it will reflect in OES.

Note: For the Sync Spinnaker Applications to work, you have to provide the Spinnaker URL at the time of installation. You also need to log in to that Spinnaker instance from the browser. This enables OES to pick up the Spinnaker information from the browser cookies and it will use those credentials for the URL which you have configured and connect to Spinnaker.

  • OES - These applications are created directly in OES. You cannot sync applications created in OES to Spinnaker. Next, we will learn how to add applications in OES.
