1 Introduction

This how-to describes how to link a different app to your licensed cloud node so that you can deploy a different app.

After completing this how-to you will know:

  • How to link a different app to your node which already has a linked an app
  • How to exchange apps between two nodes

2 Prerequisites

Before you can start with this how-to, please make sure you have completed the following prerequisites.

  • The app has the Team Server enabled. Read this to learn how to create a collaboration app.

In case you have created an app in the Mendix Modeler, you can upload it to the Team Server (see Upload To Team Server Dialog) and a repository will be created automatically.

  • Make sure no Sandbox is linked to your app. (Every Team Server app is linked to a Sandbox automatically). Read this how-to to learn how to unlink your Sandbox from your app.

4 Linking a Different App to the Node

  1. In the Developer Portal, go to Apps and select the app you want to link to the node.
  2. Once you are in the app, go to the ‘Environments’ tab in the left navigation panel.
  3. Click Select Node.
  4. Select the correct node by clicking Use this Node and link it to your app. The current linked app will be dislinked automatically.

5 Exchange Linked Apps Between Nodes

In case you want to exchange two apps with nodes who are already linked, you can create a new app and follow chapters 1 to 3 of this document.

App A → Node 1 App B → Node 2

  1. To be able to link App A to Node 2, you have to create a new empty App C (see Chapter 1).
  2. And to link this to Node 1 (see Chapter 2).
  3. App A will be released from Node 1 and can be linked to Node 2.
