This is documentation for the current major version Apprenda 7.
Documentation for older versions are also available.

The Developer Portal

Apprenda's Developer Portal optimizes basic application management workflows, exposing an intuitive Platform structure that cuts down on task completion time and minimizes complexity.

Please note that the Developer Portal is optimized for Chrome.  When viewing the new UX in IE, a Security setting of "Medium High" is recommended; if this is not permitted by corporate guidelines, at a minimum the following settings must be enabled: Active scripting, Font download, File download.  If using a later version of IE, be sure that Emulation mode is set to Edge. Additionally, the minimum resolution for viewing the Development Portal is 1280x1024.

Developer Portal Menus

The top navigation menu of the Developer Portal can be accessed by clicking on the icon in the upper right-hand corner, which will cause a top menu bar to drop down:

The Access Addition Controls link will take you to the Additional Controls section of the Developer Portal, which contains workflows that are not yet available in the main section of the Developer Portal. The Help menu lists useful links to documentation and sample guest applications. You will also see the Log Out button next to the name of the current user. You may click on the icon again should you wish to hide this menu.

The left sidebar lists the primary navigation icons for the Developer Portal. The Applications option will take you to a list of extant applications for your Development Team, where you can drill down into each application. You may also use the App List-App Logs toggle in the upper right-hand corner to switch to the Application Logs page, where you can view and manage logs and log overrides for all applications owned by your Development Team. The Add-Ons icon in the left sidebar links to the controls for viewing, provisioning, and managing Add-On instances for your Development Team.

The bottom menu bar allows you to create a new application from any part of the main section of the Developer Portal.

Data Refresh

A refresh button can be found on some Developer Portal pages. The refresh button allows Developers to refresh the data on the page being viewed, as it may have been changed through normal Platform activities (such as scaling) or the actions of other Developers or Platform Operators. The refresh button can be found in the upper right corner of applicable pages along with the time that has elapsed since the data on the page was last refreshed.
