Manage Deployed Apps


WaveMaker Apps Portal is a place for you as the project owner to manage the deployed apps. The one-click deployment from Studio hosts the app on WaveMaker Demo Cloud using the Deployment Profile. Apps Portal will enable the project owner to configure phases and push the apps from one phase to the next. From this portal you can:

  1. Configure the deployment environment for each phase - Stage (WME) and Live. The configurations involves setting the various services like Database, Web Services, Security, REST Services
  2. Push the app from one phase to another without the need to modify the app. Push will deploy the app into the new deployment environment. A separate URL is generated for each phase. You can version the apps for easy tracking.

Apps Portal

You can access the Apps Portal in two ways:

  1. By selecting Manage Deployed Apps button from the Project Dashboard,
  2. By using the Manage App option under Deploy from the Project Workspace Main Menu - this will open the app for management.

SSL Enabled Demo Cloud

note

From 10.14.0 release, WaveMaker introduced SSL for Deployed Apps to Demo Cloud.

Demo and QA deployments in WaveMaker use secure protocol HTTPS, which is SSL enabled, and therefore, the app is accessible with a URL pattern as follows.

SILO workspace (WMO Personal workspace)

URL: http://cloud.wavemakeronline.com/pk8888888n45/TestApp

Updated to: In the URL, pk8888888n45 is a Project key.

Teams and Enterprise (WMO/WME)

URL: http://cloud.wavemakeronline.com/wmshowcase/TestApp

Updated to: wmshowcase is the WaveMaker Online team's name and WaveMaker Enterprise's name in the URL.

Impact: With this change, the existing app URLs do not work. Thus, the users can get updated URL from the Apps portal or deployed apps. You are required to update app URL in all the places where it is used for redirection. For example, when configured as OAuth redirect URL, or when used in other apps as API URL.
