Managing applications with the Cloud Platform interface

Click Develop in the Cloud Platform user interface toolbar to view the Applications page. The Applications page displays all applications you have access to hosted by Cloud Platform, and provides application tagging and filtering options to help you manage many applications more easily.

Modifying views of applications

Click the grid or list icons to switch between the following displays for all applications:

  • Grid view: Displays a tile for each application with its name, URL, application tags, and if applicable, version of PHP installed on the production environment
  • List view: Lists each application with its name, URL, application tags, and if applicable, version of PHP installed on the production environment

Choose list or grid view of your applications

To view a subset of your applications, you can use the following features:

  • Click the triangle in the breadcrumb menu to display a list of organizations your account belongs to, and the applications each organization controls.
  • Click the Filter Applications field to the right of the grid and list icons to limit which applications are displayed. Start typing in the field, and the Applications page will display those applications whose names or application tags match the string you enter. You can also use ‘or’ as an operator to use more than one filter.
  • Click the Starred button next to Filter applications field to display the applications you have selected by clicking the star icon.

Using the Applications page

The Applications page provides the following features to help you manage your applications:

  • Click the application name (or, in grid view, Manage) to work with the application’s environments.
  • Click the application’s URL to visit the application in a new browser window.
  • Click the star in the upper-right corner of an application’s card to include it in the Starred list.
  • Click the plus sign in an application’s card to add an application tag.

    Renaming an application

  3. Enter the new name for the application, and then click Rename application.

Deleting applications

The following subscription levels and groups don’t allow you to delete applications from the Cloud Platform interface, and instead require you to contact Acquia Support to remove any applications:

  • Cloud Platform Enterprise
  • Site Factory
  • Partners
  • Cloud Platform Professional subscribers using non-credit card payment methods

Obtaining your subscription’s application ID

Occasionally, your use of Cloud Platform may require you to provide your application’s unique identifier—this may be referred to as the UUID for the subscription, or the Application_ID. Use the following method to locate your application’s ID:

  1. Sign in to the Cloud Platform user interface.

  2. Select the subscription for which you want the ID.

  3. Examine the Cloud Platform webpage’s URL in your browser’s address bar, which should appear similar to the following value:[string]

    The [string] is your application’s UUID.

This ID may be used with methods in the Cloud Platform API, and with other development applications that can use it for identifying a particular application to read or modify.
