You can create multiple application versions of an application. When you create an application version, the application name remains the same, but the blueprint contents are not copied from the existing application. You must create a blueprint for the new application version.

You can share applications publicly or privately in a group. When you share an application, all of the components in the application blueprint such as logical templates, services, and external services must be explicitly shared. Deployment profiles associated with the application are not shared. They are always private to a group.

Note

To create an application version, your current group must be the owning group.

Verify that your user account has the ROLE_APP_ARCHITECT application architect role assigned to it.

For ideas about how to name the application and what text to put in the description text boxes, see the predefined applications already included on the Applications page. To see these applications, you must log in as a user that is a member of the Default group.

The application is saved and the new application version appears in the Application Versions section of the original application.

Model an application blueprint for the application version. See Model an Application Blueprint.
