Activate (enable) a deployed archive with the Genero Deployment App

Use this procedure when you need to enable an archive on your Genero Application Server using the Genero Deployment Application.

Before you begin:
  • Before you can use the Genero 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 Genero Deployment App utilizes the Deployment Service. You must select these components in your GIP configuration at the time of installation. For further details, see Setting up the Genero Identity Provider.

  • You have created a Genero Archive (gar) file.

About this task:

When you activate (enable) a deployed archive, the applications and services provided by the archive become available to users.

  1. Open the Genero deployment application.
    On a remote machine, you need to specify the appropriate URL for the server and port in your browser, for example:
  2. Select the Deploy > Genero Archives ... menu.
  3. In the Manage Genero Archives screen select the archive you wish to enable and click on the Enable button.

    The status of the archive is set as Active.
