About environment creation

Environment creation is a two-step process:

  • Create an environment in the management plane using either the UI or an Apigee API.
  • Add configuration for that environment to your overrides file and apply it to the cluster.

The steps for adding an environment are described in adding and configuring an environment are explained in Step 5: Add an environment and Specify configuration overrides.

How to create an environment

  1. Create one or more new environments in the Apigee UI or with the Create environments API. For the basic steps, see Step 5: Add an environment.
  2. Add a new environment definition to the envs[] property in your overrides file. Note that the property is an array; therefore, you can add more than one environment definition to it. Give the new environment the same name as the one you created in the UI. For example, the following configuration defines two environments: test and prod:

    namespace: my-namespace
    org: my-organization
      - name: test
          synchronizer: "your_keypath/synchronizer-manager-service-account.json
          udca: "your_keypath/analytic-agent-service-account.json
      - name: prod
          synchronizer: "your_keypath/synchronizer-manager-service-account.json
          udca: "your_keypath/analytic-agent-service-account.json
  3. Apply any changes to the cluster:
    apigeectl apply -f overrides-file.yaml --all-envs
