Apps page

apps_page_403.png

All currently created, deployed, and running applications for which you have read permission appear on the Apps page. The search box at the top allows you to find apps by name, status, and/or namespace.

From the top menu, select Apps > Create New to create an app from scratch or by importing TQL. For more information on creating apps, see Fundamentals of TQL programming, Creating apps using templatesCreating and modifying apps using the Flow Designer, and Creating or modifying apps using Source Preview.

Note

When importing a TQL file, the web browser process must have all necessary privileges on the file. For example, in a Linux environment, if the files are owned by root, and you are logged in as another user, you may be able to select the files for import but they will not actually be created.

The label at the top-right corner of the tile changes shows the application's current state (see Application states). States are color-coded: gray for Created, blue for Deployed, Stopped, or Quiesced, green for Running, red for Crashed or Halt, and so on.

The namespace is displayed below the name of the application.

Use the ... menu to deploy, start, monitor, stop, undeploy, or drop an application, export it to a TQL file, move it to a group, or view it in the Flow Designer (see Modifying an application using the Flow Designer). The choices on the menu vary depending on the application's status: for example, Start appears only when the status is Stopped, and Drop appears only when the status is Created. Depending on your permissions, some menu choices may not appear.

Note

When using Firefox on Linux, attempting to import a file for which you do not have the required permissions will fail with no error message. Importing the same file with the console will return an error.

If an application has errors, the status indicator will change to a red warning icon. An invalid application cannot be deployed.

If an application halts or crashes due to an error you can fix without undeploying it, such as by restarting an external source that has gone down, you may use the Resume command to continue after resolving the problem.

Optionally, you can personalize your Apps Page by grouping applications. To create a group, select Move to a group from the  ... menu, enter a name for the group, and click Save. Once you have created a group, use the same command to add additional applications. Click the up and down arrows to reorder groups, the pencil to rename or add a description, to collapse a group, > to expand, and to delete a group (the apps will not be deleted).

To export an application to a TQL file, select ... > Export. Alternatively, select multiple apps using the checkbox in their top left corners, then click Export (on the right, just below the search box.
