Your Cloud Assembly deployment request might fail for many reasons. It might be due to network traffic, a lack of resources on the target cloud provider, or a flawed deployment specification. Or, the deployment succeeded, but it does not appear to be working. You can use Cloud Assembly to examine your deployment, review any error messages, and determine whether the problem is the environment, the requested workload specification, or something else.

Troubleshooting Workflow

Each deployment failure can have different causes. You use the workflow to begin your investigation. Your investigation might reveal that the failure was due to a transient environmental problem. Redeploying the request after verifying the conditions have improved resolves this type of problem. In other cases, your investigation might require you to examine other areas in detail.

As a project member, you can review the request details in Cloud Assembly.

Troubleshooting workflow step 2

On the deployment details History tab, you can use the event tree to see where the provisioning process failed. This tree is useful when you modify a deployment, but the change fails.





Troubleshooting workflow step 3

The Status Reason provides a more verbose version of the error message.

Troubleshooting workflow step 4

If the requested item was a Cloud Assembly blueprint, the link in the Details column opens Cloud Assembly so that you can see the related information. It might be cloud account details or Request Details.

Troubleshooting workflow step 5

The default Request Details provides a simple provisioning workflow that you can use to research the failure.





Troubleshooting workflow step 6

You can turn on the Dev mode to switch between the simple provisioning workflow and a more detailed flowchart.
