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. Note that before you can deprovision an environment, you must first undeploy all applications that are deployed to it.

Undeploying an application using the default GUI

As of version 6.2.0, the default GUI is HTML-based.

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, and then select Undeploy. A new tab appears in the right pane.
  3. You can optionally configure properties such as orchestrators for the undeployment.

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

  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.

Undeploying an application using the legacy GUI

To undeploy an application or deprovision an environment:

  1. Click Deployment in the top bar.
  2. Locate the environment under Environments.
  3. Expand the environment, right-click the deployed application or provisioned environment, and select Undeploy.
  4. Optionally select one or more orchestrators to use when executing.
  5. Click Next. The plan appears.
  6. Click Execute to execute the plan.
