Workloads that have been provisioned in the Management System are ready to be deployed to nodes through the Deploy menu. It expands into three menus:
|Deploy||This is the landing page of the deployment menu. Deploy workloads to nodes from here.|
|Log||This is the history of deployments and dry runs.|
|Dry run||Structurally the same as the deployment process for workloads, simulate the deployment of a workload from this menu.|
The log is the history of deployments and dry runs. This includes:
- deployments in progress
- dry runs in progress
- failed deployments
- failed dry runs
- successful deployments
- successful dry runs
It is displayed in reverse chronological order and can be filtered according to search criteria. It also offers some control functionality for active and failed deployments.
|Search by name (1)||Enter text here to filter the list by deployment name.|
|Deployment type (2)||Select an option from the drop-down menu to filter the list for Deploys or Dry runs.|
|Workload type (3)||Select an option from the drop-down menu to filter the list for a specific workload type: VM, Docker, CODESYS or Docker-compose.|
|Name (4)||This is the name of the deployment with the workload type displayed as a symbol. The default is the time of deployment unless a deployment name has been entered during the deployment process. Note that this is not the name of the workload.|
|Deployment type (5)||Here the deployment type is displayed: Deploy or Dry run.|
|Status (6)||The status is an indicator for both progress and status. Depending on the status of the deployment the content changes:
|Started (7)||This is the date and time the workload deployment was started. The date format is DD/MM/YYYY.|
|Finished (8)||This is the date and time the workload deployment was completed. The date format is DD/MM/YYYY.
This field will display In progress if a workload is in progress of being deployed.
|Action (9)||This column contains the Delete icon. Selecting this will remove the entry from the log. When a workload is in progress, this entry is grayed out.|
Clicking an entry in the log will show the details of the deployment.
|Back button (1)||Select the arrow to return to the log.|
|Header (2)||The header states the name of the deployment in the format Details of deployment <deploymentname>.|
|Search (3)||Enter text here to filter the Operation task list by device name. The search function can be combined with the status checkboxes to the right of the search bar.|
|Status checkboxes (4)||The checkboxes to the right of the search bar filter the Operation task list by status:
|Deployment information (5)||This is information about the deployment.
|Operation task list (6)||The operation task list displays details for single deployments that are part of the deployment campaign. The list displays information in six columns:
Restarting a failed deployment
In case a deployment fails, the Management System will attempt the deployment of a workload up to three times automatically. After that, the deployment can be restarted manually through the retry button in the operation task list.
To see the error information of the deployment, hover over the red warning sign in the status column.
The overlay gives information on the type of error in a message, a short troubleshooting hint and the time the error occurred. Note that troubleshooting hints are not available for every error case.
Follow the instructions below to retry a deployment.
