How to Create Apps from Pre-built Templates


Welcome to the Morpheus Minute. Today we’re going to talk about Apps. Morpheus Apps are a quick and easy way to package multiple instances like web servers, middleware, and databases into a single, easy to deploy application. There are several app templates that come from Morpheus by default. Apps can be created from existing instances and new templates can be created to define application stacks common to your needs. This Morpheus minute covers App creation from an existing template. When an app is provisioned within Morpheus, backups, logging, and monitoring are all automatically configured. To provision an App from a template within Morpheus, Click Provisioning, Apps, then click Add App. Choose the template to use, Fill in the name and optional description, then click configure. In this case we’re going to deploy a Tomcat and MySQL application. Pick the group, choose the mysql version. Choose an instance configuration.
