Import and run one of the All-In-One (AIO) Macros from the Development and Test Solution Pack.
Table of Contents
The "Development and Test Solution Pack" contains several Macros that can be used to quickly stand-up functional Deployments. Simply run your Macro of choice and the necessary components will automatically be created for you. The running of each Macro will create a new Deployment. To learn more, see Development and Test Solution Pack.
If the Macro that you want to run does not exist in the local collection of your RightScale account, go to the MultiCloud Marketplace and download the appropriate Macro(s). Go to Design -> MultiCloud Marketplace -> Macros. The Macros will be privately shared with your RightScale account, so you will find the Solution Pack Macros under the "Shared" category of the MultiCloud Marketplace.
The following AIO macros are available:
Find the Macro(s) that you want to use and click the Subscribe button to add a copy of the Macro to your RightScale account's 'Local' collection. (Designer -> Macros)
Go to Design -> Macros. Select the Macro that you want to execute and click the Run action button.
Note: The LAMP AIO Macro was used in the example below.
Before the Macro actually runs, you'll have the option of selecting and using an existing SSH Key. If you do not select an SSH Key, the Macro will simply create a new SSH Key. Unless you have a strong preference to use an existing SSH Key, it's recommended that you let the Macro create a new SSH Key for you.
Next, you'll need to specify a Deployment Name Prefix. We suggest using your initials. The prefix (e.g. do) will be used to create the name of your Deployment (e.g. do_All-In-One (LAMP)_1284569536230).
When you run the Macro a unique ID is added as a suffix to the namespace of each component that's created to ensure its uniqueness, which will also help you more easily find the related components.
If you look at the output, you'll notice that the Macro performs the following steps:
Go to the Deployment's show page. Manage -> Deployments -> YourDeployment. Notice that the server has already been launched.
Once the Server becomes operational, go to its info page by clicking on the Server's nickname link.
Under the Info tab, click its public DNS Name link to view the running Server in a browser.
Congratulations! You just created a functional Development and Test environment in just a few steps. You can now safely terminate the running Server and customize as necessary.
