Manage environments

You can manage your environments with a combination of the Google Cloud Console and the hybrid runtime configuration file. This section describes how to create a new environment, edit an environment's details, and delete an existing environment with the GCP. You must then update your overrides.yaml on the runtime plane to complete the creation or deletion of an environment.

Create a new environment in the UI

To create a new environment, you must do the following (in this order):

  1. Create a new environment in the Google Cloud Console.

    AND

  2. Provision the new environment in your overrides file.

You can create up to 75 environments per organization.

To create a new environment:

  1. Create the new environment as described in Create a new environment.

    There can be a several minute delay before the new environment is provisioned.

    Even when provisioning is done, you have one more step to perform. You must still add the environment to the runtime's overrides.yaml file.

  2. On the Kubernetes administration machine, add the new environment to the runtime's overrides file, as described in How to add multiple environments.

Edit an existing environment in the UI

You can change the following properties of an existing environment in the UI:

  • Display name
  • Description

To edit an existing environment, see Edit an existing environment.

Delete an existing environment

To delete an existing environment, you must do the following (in this order):

  1. Delete the environment in the UI, as described in this section

    AND

  2. Delete the environment from the runtime, as described in Deleting environments.

To delete an existing environment:

  1. Delete the environment in the Apigee UI using the instructions in Delete an environment.

    The environment's card in the UI displays a "Pending Deletion" label while Apigee deletes the environment.

    There can be a several minute delay before the deletion is completed.

  2. Delete the environment from the runtime's overrides.yaml file, as described in Deleting environments.
