Promoting a configuration to an environment

A saved configuration isn't active until you deploy it (promote it) to an environment—either staging or production. Once you promote it, Media portal lists the configuration under that environment; it may take several minutes to be fully propagated through the CDN network.

Note: Once you promote a configuration to an environment, you can't remove it. To replace the configuration, promote a different configuration to the environment to overwrite the configuration you want to remove.

To promote a configuration to an environment:

  1. Log in to Media portal.
  1. From the menu, select My Services > Caching.
  1. From the lists, select the access group and SCID (service component ID) containing the configuration you want to promote.
  1. From the Configuration list, select the configuration you want to promote.

    Media automatically selects the latest version of the configuration and shows the details for the configuration. If you want to select a specific version, you can fint it in configuration hsitory. If you want to promote the configuration that was previously promoted to staging, select it under the Staging section of the list.
  1. Click Promote Configuration.
  1. Select the radio button for the environment you want to promote the configuration to (staging or production).

  2. Add any notes that will help you or others keep track of the configuration.
  1. Click Promote.

    Media portal promotes the configuration to the environment you specified. You'll now see this configuration listed under the environment you selected in the configuration list; it may take several minutes to be fully propagated through the CDN network.
