Working with environments

After you have successfully deployed your first application, let’s explore the concept of Environment in practice. In this section you will learn how to create and manage your environments.

Pre-requirements for FREE accounts

This step is only required if you have a FREE account, users of other plans can directly jump to Creating an environment.

The FREE account by default has a single environment named default that uses all the available quota of the account. As such, you will not be able to create any other environment since your plan does not have any extra unassigned quota. You can however split the quota into two or more environments as needed. To do that, first follow the steps in Removing an environment to remove the default environment, and then continue with Creating an environment to create new environments with a portion of the available quota.

Creating an environment

To create an environment, navigate to the environments window by clicking on the user icon on the top right corner of the main window, and clicking on “environments”. After that, you will be presented with a list of the current environments.

Next, click on the plus button situated on the top right corner of the same window, and the dialog with the options to create the environments will be shown.

Now, fill the environment name, an optional description, and the assigned quota, and click on “Create environment” to create it. Optionally, you can mark this environment as the default one so that it will be used by default when logging into your account.

Selecting an environment

To change between environments, use the top bar on the left-hand side, and select the environment.

FAQ

How many environments can I create?

The number of environments is limited depending on your subscription plan. Free accounts are limited to 3 environments, increasing to 5 for pro accounts. If you need more environments contact support to see how we can help you.

Can I resize an existing environment?

Unfortunately at this point it is not possible to resize an existing environment. To do that, you would need to delete the existing environment and recreate it with the updated quota.
