The Nodejitsu WebOps interface allows developers to administrate their application through a web interface. This web interface offers the same functionality that can be found in jitsu CLI or our RESTful API.
In addition to having feature parity with
jitsu it also allows you to
subscribe to our different payed plans. The WebOps interface be found at
Logging in to WebOps
To log in to our WebOps interface you can press the login button that is present in our menu bar. You will be presented with a login modal dialog. If you forgot the credentials for your Nodejitsu account, you can press the "forgot password" link and a password recovery e-mail will be sent to you.
If you don't have a Nodejitsu account yet, you can register it at our front page. Once you register an account a confirmation code will be send to your e-mail address. When you have confirmed your account, you can deploy your application to the Nodejitsu platform.
When you have successfully logged in, you will be redirected to your application's page. If you don't have any applications, you will be presented with a simple placeholder.
And if you have applications, you will see our applications page.
Managing Your Applications
In the applications page, you can see all the applications that are hosted on Nodejitsu in the sidebar. The red and green dots prefixed before their names indicate if your applications are started or stopped.
As you can see in the screen shot above, our application
currently stopped. We can start it clicking the start button in the
application control menu bar.
It can take a while for an application to start, because we need to build all the dependencies and deploy it on multiple drones (when specified). Therefore, we start applications in the background, and notify you when the application is started in the Application page
In addition to starting, stopping and restarting your application, you can also modify the ENV variables, start a different snapshot or tail the logs of your application.
Creating a Free Database
When you are developing your application, you might need access to a database to save your data or to support sessions. You can create a database in WebOps; these database are the free databases that are provided by third-party database providers.
To create a new free database, simply click on the type of database that you want and select the provider where you want to host this database. The different providers have different limits, so make sure to select one that fits your needs. After clicking on the provider, you will be presented by a modal dialog.
After you have created the database the database will be listed on the page, and you can copy and paste the authorization details and start using the database.
Managing Your Account and Creating a Subscription
You can change your account details by either clicking your username or gravatar in the menu bar or clicking the menu item with a cog. Sometimes there will be a red notification indicator; this usually means that you have an uncompleted account and that some data might still be missing from your account.
As you can see in the account screen shot above, I'm missing a couple of things. I don't have a Nodejitsu subscription yet and I didn't submit my billing information. If you enter your billing information, we will actually add 1 extra free month of sandbox time to your account. So let's fill in our billing details and get some free time. All the fields in billing tab are required, so make sure you fill them all in correctly. When you want to change information, you will be presented with an addition modal dialog which asks for your password. This way we know that you actually have the authority to change the account details and submit billing information.
After successfully submitting your billing information, you will have access
plans tab. Once you are ready to start deploying your application and
leave the development sandbox, you can select one of the plans that are presented
here. Simply select the plan you want to run and subscribe.
When you are subscribed to a plan, you can see how many drones you have used and upgrade if needed. You can easily see which applications are currently using the drones from your plan by clicking on the details button.
In the invoices tab you can see all the charges that are made against your credit card.
