What Exactly Is an Environment?
An Environment is a self-contained workspace for authorized users. It's a containerized collection of Rivers, Connections, Variables, and River groups defined by the account admin.
Environments can be used to migrate content from one workspace to another.
Each Environment is isolated from the others and has its own set of users, though a user can be a part of multiple Environments.
Environments allow multiple teams to use the Rivery platform at the same time without accessing non-permissioned projects. As statuses change, Admin users can easily modify Environments and user permissions.
How Environments Work?
Let's begin by getting to know the Environment Manager.
This is a console tour for working with Environments. Please hover over the rippling dots and read the notes attached to follow through.
In this console tour, you'll learn how to:
- Create a new Environment.
- Edit an Environment.
- Delete an Environment.
- Increase the number of Environments that can be created in your account.
- Set a specific Environment as the default.
Environment variables are used throughout the whole platform, but each Environment has its own set of variables. lets dive deeper into the subject and learn how to:
- Change the Environment variables' values.
- Set new variables directly in the display table.
- Edit and delete Variables.
This tab contains several options for customizing how you work with Environments; your preferences and changes will be applied to all packages and will be the default settings for any new ones.
A Package merges Rivery objects from one Environment into another Environment; it will be discussed further in the following section.
Deployments, also known as Deployment Packages, are collections of Rivers, Connections, Variables, and River Groups that can be moved from one Environment to another. Each deployment package has its own settings that determine which related entities are deployed. Let's take a look and learn how to:
- New Deployment Package addition.
- Revert the newly deployed package to its previous state.
Who Is Capable of Managing Environments?
Only Admin users can manage Environments, which includes the ability to create, edit, and deploy packages, as well as undo changes.
