How do I create an environment?

First you need to select the project where you want to create the environment. When you are in the project, click 'Add New Environment'.

You will have to follow a three-step creation process:

  • Step 1 – Pick your application
  • Step 2  Configure your platform
  • Step 3  Customize your environment

Step 1  Pick your application

  • Application – choose the application you want to deploy. See What web applications does Artifakt support? for more details on our catalog.
  • Version – select which specific version of the application you want to deploy. Please note that if the version you are looking for is not listed, it means that we have not tested this version yet. You can still use your own source code but at your own risk.
  • Use your own source code? – choose whether or not you want to deploy your own source code on the environment
    • Code 
      • Git Repository URL – the URL of the repository hosting your application's custom source code
      • Branch or Tag – the specific branch or tag you want to deploy for your application's custom source code
      • Deploy Key – the access key to let us connect to your repository to fetch your application's custom source code
    • Data
      • Database Backups – select the desired backup for your database
      • Media Backups – select the desired backup for your media hard drive

Step 2 – Configure your platform

  • Environment Name – name of the environment you are creating
  • Environment Type – Either 'Development' or 'Production'. If you select 'Development', we will not enable Amazon RDS Multi-AZ mode for the database and the backup retention period of the database backups will be set to 1 day. If you select 'Production', we will enable Amazon RDS Multi-AZ mode for the database and the backup retention period of the database backups will be set to 7 days.
  • Region – region where the application will be deployed
  • Sizing Configuration
    • Platform Type – choose the platform type depending on the availability and performance you need. We provide 4 different types (One Server, Two servers, Multi-Servers Scalable, Multi-Servers Scalable with Database Replication)
    • Web server memory (RAM) – select the hardware configuration depending on the performance you need
    • Database storage (GB) – storage size of the database. Note that you can only increase storage. Default and minimum set to 10 GB.
    • Media storage (GB) – storage size of the media hard drive. Default and minimum set to 10 GB.

Step 3 – Customize your environment

  • Custom Configuration – if needed you can override configuration keys available when provisioning web servers.
  • Environment Variables – if needed you can override web servers' environment variables.
  • Additional Services
    • Options – if needed, you can enable additional options (cache, CDN, WAF, etc.)
      • Redis Size – if you have selected 'Redis' in the 'Options' list, select the hardware configuration depending on the performance you need
  • Operating Days
    • Start Date – if you want to automatically start / stop your environment during a specific period, you must provide the start date
    • Stop Date – if you want to automatically start / stop your environment during a specific period, you must provide the stop date
    • Start Time – if you want to automatically start / stop your environment at a specific time, you must provide the start time
    • Stop Time – if you want to automatically start / stop your environment at a specific time, you must provide the stop time
    • Opening Days – if you want to automatically start / stop your environment on specific week days only, you must select the desired days
