- You have logged in to the web console and have switched to the Developer perspective.
- You have the appropriate roles and permissions in a project to create and modify applications in OpenShift Container Platform.
- You have created and deployed an application on OpenShift Container Platform using the Developer perspective.
10.2. Editing the source code of an application using the Developer perspective
You can use the Topology view in the Developer perspective to edit the source code of your application.
In the Topology view, click the Edit Source code icon, displayed at the bottom-right of the deployed application, to access your source code and modify it.Note
This feature is available only when you create applications using the From Git, From Catalog, and the From Dockerfile options.
If the Eclipse Che Operator is installed in your cluster, a Che workspace ( ) is created and you are directed to the workspace to edit your source code. If it is not installed, you will be directed to the Git repository ( ) your source code is hosted in.
10.3. Editing the application configuration using the Developer perspective
You can use the Topology view in the Developer perspective to edit the configuration of your application.
Currently, only configurations of applications created by using the From Git, Container Image, From Catalog, or From Dockerfile options in the Add workflow of the Developer perspective can be edited. Configurations of applications created by using the CLI or the YAML option from the Add workflow cannot be edited.
Ensure that you have created an application using the From Git, Container Image, From Catalog, or From Dockerfile options in the Add workflow.
After you have created an application and it is displayed in the Topology view, right-click the application to see the edit options available.
