When you tear down a deployed application from the cloud environment, you can quickly redeploy the application without configuring the elements in the Deployment Profile wizard.

With quick deploy, you can also update required properties and overridable properties outside the Deployment Profile wizard and deploy the application blueprint.

When you quick deploy an application, the latest application version and associated deployment profiles are available for deployment. To quick deploy an older application version, open the application and quick deploy the specific application version.


For a vCloud Automation Center deployment, if you add another NIC to an application and use the existing deployment profile to quick deploy the application you receive an error. You must open the Deployment Profile wizard and select Map Details to map the cloud network to the newly added NIC.

Verify that your user account has the ROLE_DEPLOYER deployer role assigned to it.

Verify that at least one deployment profile is available in vCloud Application Director. See Create a Deployment Profile.

Verify that the current group you are logged in to owns the associated deployment profile.

If you are not part of the group that owns the associated deployment profile, the Quick Deploy button (Quick deploy an application) is disabled.


On the vCloud Application Director title bar, click the drop-down menu and select Applications.


From the Applications page, select the application to deploy.


Select an application version to Quick Deploy.


Click the Quick Deploy button (Quick deploy an application) to initiate the deployment process.

If an application version is not selected, by default the latest application version is deployed.


In the Destination drop-down menu, select the associated deployment profile.

The properties that are required for deployment and overridable at deployment appear.


(Optional) Set a new value for a required or overridable property and click Deploy.

The modified value for a required or overridable property is not saved in the deployment profile for future deployments.

The deployment summary page appears and displays the status of the in-progress deployment.

Use the status windows on the deployment summary page to track the deployment status. See Using the Deployment Summary Page.
