Create a Deployment


The following example creates a new Deployment using a previously saved cookie for authentication.

Curl Example

# Set variables
nickname="test_deployment"        # Set the Deployment's nickname
description="test_description"    # Set the Deployment's description
account=MyAccountNumber           # Set your account number.  Obtain via your browser in the Dashboard. Tail end of the URL:  Settings > Account.

# Create the new Deployment via a curl command sent to the RightScale API
curl  -H 'X-API-VERSION:1.0' -b <./mySavedCookies> -d "deployment[description]=$description" -d "deployment[nickname]=$nickname" https://my.rightscale.com/api/acct/$account/deployments

Ruby Wrapper Example

params = { 'deployment[nickname]' => 'My New Deployment', 'deployment[description]' => '1st test Deployment created with the Ruby Wrapper API' }
