The Developer section of the Dashboard includes a developer role that gives access to two additional tabs: Cloud App Instances and Cloud App Definitions. Click the developer icon to navigate to the developer dashboard.The image is the developer icon.

Cloud App Instances

The Cloud App Instances tab in your Dashboard shows all of the cloud app instances that you’ve created. You create new cloud app instances from here using Create a Cloud App Instance.

You can filter the list of cloud app instances by:
  • Name: Sort by the name you provided when you created the instance.

  • Status: Sort by either active or draft.

  • Most Recently Modified

The status of each instance is displayed in the entry and is designated as:
  • Active: This instance is available to you and can be used to create accounts and recipes. A cloud app instance is automatically activated when it’s complete.

  • Draft: This instance is incomplete.

You can open the Cloud Apps catalog to view all published cloud app instances. The published cloud app definitions are displayed in a separate section named Custom Built. When you open a custom built cloud app definition, the cloud app instances are displayed.
The image shows the cloud apps catalog with the Custom Built and Built by Oracle sections displayed.

Cloud App Definitions

You create new cloud app definitions from here using Create a Cloud App Definition.

The status of each cloud app definition is displayed in the entry and is designated as:
  • Draft: This status gives you the ability to edit the cloud app definition. It is not available for testing.

  • Active: This status means the cloud app definition is complete enough to be tested. You must explicitly activate a cloud app definition to test it.

  • Published: This status means that the cloud app definition is visible by other SSI developers and enables them to create an associated cloud app instance.
