Add or Reduce Capacity
Capacity equals deployment. 100% capacity is deployment of all instances in the cloud. Partial deployments are usually used to test new code or components. After the partial deployment is recognized as successful, a full deployment can be executed.
Two processes are required to change capacity:
- Transition provides visibility into the variable set and allows you to execute a partial or full deployment.
- Operate allows you to control capacity and execute a full deployment.
Transition > Environment > Platform > Summary > Scaling Configuration
- To view the environments page, click Transition.
- Select a platform.
The Summary page displays the Scaling Configuration panel.
You can only complete a full deployment in Operate.
Operate > Summary tab > Force Deployment
To execute a full deployment, complete the following steps:
- Select the appropriate assembly.
- Click Operate.
Select an environment (for example, prod2).
The summary tab displays status information.
- Click Force Deploy.
Force Deploy gathers all changes made to that environment, regardless of how small or large, up to the moment you click Force Deploy.
