10.5. Managing Containers

Containers within the Realtime Decision Server can be started, stopped, and updated from within Business Central.

10.5.1. Starting, Stopping, and Deleting a Container

A container is stopped by default. To start it, follow these steps:

  1. Log into Business Central.
  2. Click DeployRule Deployment.
  3. In the SERVER TEMPLATES section on the left, click on your Realtime Decision Server ID.
  4. In the KIE CONTAINERS section, click on the container you want to start.
  5. Click Start. Alternatively, click Stop to stop a running container. Once a container is stopped, you can click Remove to remove it.

10.5.2. Upgrading a Container

You can update deployed containers without needing to restart the Realtime Decision Server. This is useful in cases where the business rule changes cause new versions of packages to be provisioned. You can have multiple versions of the same package provisioned and deployed. To upgrade a container, follow these steps:

  1. Log into Business Central.
  2. Click DeployRule Deployment.
  3. In the KIE CONTAINERS section, click on the container you want to upgrade.
  4. Click on the Version Config tab.
  5. Enter the new version in the Version textfield and click Upgrade.

10.5.3. Managing Multiple Containers

You can create and provision multiple containers on your Realtime Decision Server.

Select your server in the REMOTE SERVERS section to view all the containers on your server and their status.
