Managing the Applications Lifecycle

 

OutSystems

Manage Your OutSystems Infrastructure

LifeTime is the centralized console for managing your OutSystems environments, applications, IT users, and security, covering the full application life cycle from development to deployment.

A typical OutSystems infrastructure comprises the following environments:

  • Development: The environment where applications are initially developed and tested
  • Quality: The environment where testers and business users experiment applications to perform quality assurance
  • Production: The environment that hosts the application version end-users interact with

You can manage your OutSystems infrastructure in the INFRASTRUCTURE tab of LifeTime console (https://<your_lifetime_server>/lifetime).

Set Up the Infrastructure

To execute the initial setup of your OutSystems infrastructure in LifeTime, follow the instructions in Configure the infrastructure management console.

Add or Remove Environments

At any time, you can add or remove environments to your OutSystems infrastructure in LifeTime.

To add a new OutSystems environment to your infrastructure, do the following:

  1. Click the Register an Existing Environment link.
  2. Register your environment as described in Configure the infrastructure management console.

To remove one of your OutSystems environments from the infrastructure, do the following:

  1. Click the Edit Environment link for the environment you want to remove.
  2. Click the Unregister environment link.

Switch the Environments Order

You can switch the order of two environments in the infrastructure using the Switch Order icon placed between those environments.

Manage an Environment

To manage an environment individually, use the links available in each environment:

  • Environment Health: To monitor the health of elements like timers, processes, or the status of the mobile apps build service. This link redirects to the Service Center console of the environment.
  • Configuration: To configure the environment behaviors like the purpose of the environment in the infrastructure, date formats or building mobile apps. This link redirects to the Service Center console of the environment.
  • Environment Security: To configure security settings for applications, like HTTPS or Content Security Policy.
  • Edit Environment: To configure specific settings like the connection between the environment and LifeTime.
