Environments

Your Magnolia PaaS Environments section contains critical information about your deployment’s health, response times, and overall usage. You can view Statistics about the environment by release, component, and date range or you can Manage your environments directly from your Cockpit.

The environments you see in this section of the Cockpit are those configured in your .gitlab-ci.yml file.

Manage your environments

Manage your environments via the Cockpit by going to Environments and selecting the Manage tab. You can manage both your integration and production (prod) environments here.

Within the environment, you are able to manage your Magnolia PaaS backend and frontend separately.

The examples and descriptions below apply to both backend and frontend environments as well as both author/public instances.
