Install application 

(info)
 This option is only visible when no application is installed yet.


When  a valid database connection is setup, an Application can be installed into the Environment. You can install one Application per environment. 

Access the specific environment by clicking on the name of it.

In the Menu pane click “Install application”  from the ACTIONS group or use the big blue button.

You now have two options:

  • Browse and Select a file to upload and install in one go. With this option you combine the Upload action normally executed in the Project details screen and the installation action in this Environment.
  • From the drop down menu select a specific Application from the list of uploaded applications to install. (See image) Only projects  for the database type of this environment are listed. If you browse and select a non-matching project,  the upload will succeed but the installation fails.

Click “Install” to install this application into the environment using the database setup for this environment. All database objects used in the Application are created in the database. It may take a while.  A blue progress bar shows the installation progress.

After successful installation the Monitor option in the Menu pane is opened. The Runtime canvas shows a message “The environment is ready!”

In the right Detail pane the application details are visible.
