After a deployment is provisioned and running, you have several actions that you can run to manage the deployment. The life cycle management can include powering on or off, resizing, and deleting a deployment. You can also run various actions on individual components to manage them.


  1. Click Deployments and locate your deployment.
  2. To access the deployment details, click the deployment name.
    You can use the Topology tab to visualize the deployment structure and resources.

    The History tab includes all the provisioning events and any events related to actions that you run after the requested item is deployed. If there are any problems with the provisioning process, the History tab events will help you with troubleshooting the failures.

    The Cost tab provides the current cost of some components since they were deployed.

  3. If you determine that a deployment is too costly in its current configuration and you want to resize a component, select the component on the topology page and then select Actions > Resize on the component page.
    The available actions depend on the component, the cloud account, and your permissions.

  4. As part of your development life cycle, one of your deployments is no longer needed. To remove the deployment and reclaim resources, select Actions > Delete.
    The available actions depend on the state of the deployment.
