Undeploy an application or deprovision an environment

To remove an application and its components from an environment, you need to undeploy the application. Similarly, to tear down a cloud-based environment provisioned by XL Deploy, you need to deprovision it.

Important: Undeploy all applications that are deployed to an environment before deprovisioning it. environment.

For more information on provisioning in XL Deploy, see provision an environment.

Undeploying an application using the GUI

To undeploy an application:

  1. Expand Environments, and then expand the environment where the application is deployed.
  2. Hover over the application, click Explorer action menu, or right click, and select Undeploy.
  3. Optionally, you can configure properties such as orchestrators for the undeployment. For more information see, Understanding orchestrators.

    Note: If you want to adjust the plan by skipping steps or inserting pauses, click the arrow icon on the Undeploy button and select Modify plan.

  4. Click Undeploy to start executing the plan immediately.

    If the server does not have the capacity to immediately start executing the plan, it will be in a QUEUED state until the server has sufficient capacity.

    If a step in the undeployment fails, XL Deploy stops executing and marks the step as FAILED. Click the step to see information about the failure in the output log.
