An Environment captures your operational requirements for an instance of your Assembly. Examples of Environments are dev, qa, or prod environments. Because all environments use the same base application model, the overall effort to maintain all of the environments is minimized.
To create an environment, follow these steps:
Go to the assembly.
In the Transition phase, click create environment.
Administrative Status from the options listed below.
Provision: Environment is under provisioning state
Active: Environment is up and serving production traffic
Inactive: Environment is up however doesn’t serve production traffic
Decommission: Environment is no longer in use and can be removed.
Continuous Deployment: Not in use
DNS Subdomain: Makes the environment unique
Global DNS: If checked, creates the GLB
For a new environment, “Provision” is the correct status value. Other values should be used after the environment is created and functioning. This status value is used only for administrative purpose by NOC or OneOps admins to understand the state of the environment.
