Archive or Unarchive a Deployment

Objective

To archive an existing Deployment.  Conversely, unarchive an archived Deployment.

Overview

You can archive an existing Deployment to help manage and prevent excessive clutter in the RightScale Dashboard.  This is typically done with Deployments you wish to keep, but are not at the forefront of your current work.  This is an excellent alternative to deleting a Deployment that you think you might need again sometime in the future.

Things to Remember

  • Important!  Archived deployments will not show up in any drop down menus.  (For example, Design -> Macros -> New action button has a calculated Deployments drop-down menu, as does the Alert Escalations menu.  Any such menus will not include archived deployments to draw an association with.)
  • You cannot archive the Default deployment.  The Archive functionality does not apply to the Default deployment.
  • Archived deployments can be unarchived.  (See Steps to Unarchive a Deploymentbelow.)
  • All archived deployments are displayed in a comma separated "Archived Deployments"  list at the bottom of the Deployments' page.

Steps to Archive a Deployment

  • Navigate to Deployments in the RightScale Dashboard in any of the following ways
    • RightScale logo in the header
    • Home -> Dashboard -> Deployments Tab
    • Manage -> Deployments
  • Select the specific deployment (e.g. "Archive Test")
  • Select the "Archive" action button

The following should occur:

  • A flash message in the RightScale header (e.g. "Deployment was successfully archived")
  • The deployment is added to the "Archived Deployments" list.  The list is at the bottom of the Deployments display.

Steps to Unarchive a Deployment

Steps to unarchive a deployment are very similar.

  • Navigate to Deployments in the RightScale Dashboard in any of the following ways
    • RightScale logo in the header
    • Home -> Dashboard -> Deployments Tab
    • Manage -> Deployments
  • Scroll to the bottom of the display, and select the specific deployment you wish to unarchive
  • Select the "Unarchive" action button

The following should occur:

  • A flash message in the RightScale header (e.g. "Deployment was successfully unarchived")
  • The deployment is removed from the "Archived Deployments" list, and displayed with the other Deployments.
