foreground

(Optional) < Boolean flag— 0|1|true|false >

getApplication

Retrieves an application by name.

You must specify the projectName and applicationName.

ArgumentsDescriptions

projectName

Name of the project. This name must be unique among all projects.

Argument Type: String

Argument Type: String

applicationName

Name of the application that must be unique among all projects.

Argument Type: String

applicationEntityRevisionId

(Optional) The revision ID of the versioned object.

Argument type: UUID

validate

(Optional) < Boolean flag— 0|1|true|false >

Whether to validate with these rules. Default is false or 0.

For microservice applications:

  • The application has at least one microservice. If there are more than one, all of their definitions must be complete.

  • Each environment has at least one utility resource.

  • Each environment has at least one cluster defined.

  • The application has at least one complete mapping to any of the tierMaps to an environment. If there is more than one tierMap entry, at least one of them must be complete. Since a validation takes place in the process run to check for partially mapped tierMap, the intent here is to enforce mapping to at least one tierMap. If there is more than one microservice, each of them must have a complete mapping to at least one environment. If not, the mapping is incomplete.

  • The application has at least one process defined.

For traditional applications:

  • Must contain at least one application tier

  • Must contain at least one tier map

  • Must contain at least one process

  • Must be mapped to at least one environment
