Application Environments

Overview

To reflect the different life stages of your software, you can deploy your applications in different environments. By default Maestro provides four standard environments:

Adding custom environments

In addition, you can define your own environments. To do so:

  1. Open your Dashboard
  2. Click on your account avatar (top-right) and select Account Settings
  3. Click on Custom Environments in the Settings panel on the left.
  4. Click on Add a new environment
  5. Give your environment a name and click Save changes

Once the new environment is added, you will be able to see it in the list of supported environments when creating a new application.

Understanding custom environments

Custom environments don’t influence anything in the application itself. They will simply result in relevant environment variables having the correct values. The usage of those custom values is up to your application.

Depending on your configuration, your application will act differently in each environment. There is no difference between these environments when it comes to features and supported tools apart from what you define in your code.
