Manage an environment

The environments available to your organization account are located in the Environments section of the Web Console. When you connect your first Cloud account, a default environment named Production is created for you and is linked to the Cloud account you connected.

Prior to creating an environment you must first have at least one Cloud Account connected. For more information on connecting cloud accounts, read the Connecting Accounts getting started guide.

Create a new Environment

  1. Go to Environments and click on Create Environment.
  2. Fill in a unique name.
  3. Select the account and region the stacks will be deployed to.
  4. Click Create to finish creating the environment.

You have now created a new environment with default configuration.

For information about environments in Altostra and how they work, read the Environments reference.
