Design - Bundle Provisioning UI

Based on the new workflows this page will hold some of the new interaction designs.


  • The bundle tree will have new levels and will allow you to select either a list view or down to a specific bundle, bundle version, destination or deployment to get the detailed screen on the right

  • The left nav going to all necessary levels avoids the need for un-labeled page levels

  • List and detail views take up the entire right hand side of the screen

  • Destinations are a new concept... it is where you have deployed a bundle

  • Tags are a new concept, they'll add in information about the bundles, versions and destinations. They'll be filterable and assignable/editable in this part of the ui.

  • The bundle create wizard will be simplified and much more data will be pulled from the recipe. The first screen will be a recipe upload.

  • Bundles can now only be deployed to a single resource or a single group. (That resource/group plus the install path on disk is the "Destination")

  • Deployments will now be "Live" or "Inactive or archived". The live deployment is the last push to that location.

  • When pushing to a destination, you'll be offered the chance to start from the configuration of the previous push to that location.

  • A new screen will show the historical deployments to a destination.

  • New screens are added to "Preview" a deployment.

  • New screens are added to view the detailed steps, status and result logs for those.

  • A revert workflow will be created

Bundle Tree

The new bundle tree looks something like:

  • Bundles

    • MyBundle

      • Versions

        • 1

        • 2

        • 3

      • Destinations

        • Production MyApp Cluster

          • Deployment 1

        • Staging MyApp Cluster

          • Deployment 2

          • Deployment 3


  1. Bundle tree

  2. Bundle list*

  3. Bundle version list*

  4. Bundle deployments list

  5. Bundle destination list

  6. Bundle destination deployment history

  7. Bundle Add Wizard

    1. Upload bundle package or recipe

Deployment Wizard

  1. Start from a bundle version (Bundle: MyApp,  BundleVersion: 1.0)

  2. click [Create new deployment]

  3. Name the deployment "My Production Cluster" and enter the path "/opt/MyApp"

  4. Select a resource or cluster (select: MyApp Production Cluster with 3 boxes in it)

  5. Answer deployment questions (database url: prod-db) or offer to clone configuration from an existing deployment

  6. Preview the installation (push out to 3 boxes... for each box show steps involved and previews (file conflicts, replace-file results))

  7. Confirm deploy... watch the status of the deploy...

  8. View errors, listed by server -> step -> details
