Deploy an archive

When you deploy an archive on a Genero Application Server, the applications and services referenced in the archive are placed on the host, but are not yet available to users.

Deploy options

On your GAS installation use one of the following methods:
  • The Deployment App to deploy and secure applications with Genero Identity Provider (GIP).
  • The gasadmin command line tool. You can use it to deploy applications on a local GAS installation.
  • The DeployGar tool. This allows you to manage applications on both local and remote servers. Commands can be included in a script file.

Deployment App

Before you can use the Deployment App, you need to configure and enable the Genero Identity Provider (GIP) on your GAS. You use the StarterApp to perform the installation of the GIP. The Deployment App utilizes the Deployment Service. You must select these components in your GIP configuration at the time of installation.

By default, only users with the GIP Role.Admin authorization scope can access the Deployment App. Access to the application needs to be provided by your GIP administrator for other users. To access the application:
  • From the URL
  • From the "Deployment application" link on the Demos page at:

Any URL used with the GIP must contain a valid hostname; it cannot contain "localhost". The GIP uses cookies, and cookies do not work well with "localhost".
