How to create environment aliases on cloud?

  • To ease the process of management, creating an alternative (alias) for an environment or a distinct node is the best option. It clarifies which item you are working with, so you’ll never make a mistake while choosing the environment/node that needs to be adjusted.
  • This ability is especially useful while working with numerous nodes of the same type, possibly due to the multi-node feature. Let’s consider this with the example of defining the master and slave nodes in a DB cluster.
  • Choose the environment that has a group of similar nodes and expand the list of instances.
  • Select the node you want to label and click the Set-Alias pencil icon next to it (or double-click the Node ID: string). Whatever you type in the input field that appears will be saved automatically.
  • Similarly, you can add a label for an entire environment (the domain name will stay the same).
