Introduction to Deployments
The Deployment Page
When you first log into the Compose UI, the first page you see is the Deployments page with a list of all your deployments. On the right is an icon with the database type and the deployment name. To the left is the datacenter and location of the deployment.
Sort Your Deployments
In the upper-right of the Deployments page, there is a drop-down menu for sorting your deployments.
- Group by: Tenancy - standard Compose Hosted deployments will all fall under Compose Hosted. If you have Compose Enterprise deployments, they will fall under Compose Enterprise.
- Group by: Datacenter - deployments will be sorted into the region and platform that they reside on in alphabetical order.
- Group by: Billing Code - If you make use of the Billing Code field in the deployment Settings, then you may group all the deployments with the same billing code together. Deployments without a billing code will fall under (no billing code).
To set up a new deployment, click on the Create Deployment button in the upper-left, which brings up a list of database types.
Once you have chosen a database type, you can select which datacenter, location, and platform you would like to use. You may also select the starting size of your deployment. Depending on database type there might also be some other options to choose at this step, like storage engine.
The Deployment Overview
Once you have a deployment up and running, the Deployment Overview page is where the most relevant information about that deployment can be found.
Deployment health, usage, connection strings, topology, and certificate information is displayed here along with user defined notes and billing codes.
