Create an environment

An environment is a grouping of infrastructure and middleware items such as hosts, servers, clusters, and so on. An environment is used as the target of a deployment, allowing you to map deployables to members of the environment.

To create an environment where you can deploy an application:

  1. In the top bar, click Explorer.
  2. Hover over Environments, click Menu button, and select New > Environment. Or you can right-click and select New > Environment.
  3. In the Name field, enter a name for the environment.
  4. In the Common section, click in the Containers field, and select one or more middleware containers from the list.
  5. Click Save.
