Child application

You may want to create an application that inherit from an existing application. To ease this action, we created an endpoint on our API to create a child application.

When creating a child application, the following elements are cloned:

  • Environment variables
  • Addons
  • Collaborators
  • Notifications settings

This feature can be very interesting to implement your own Review Apps for codes that are not hosted on officially supported SCM tools.

Deployment of a child app

When you create a child app of an application, it inherits resources from its parent app, but you still need to deploy it.

It can be done thanks to a git push:

# child app name is 'child-app-1'
git remote add child-app-1
git push child-app-1 master

Note that the remote URL depends on the region of your application. You can get it using our CLI with:

scalingo --app child-app-1 git-show

Or you can use our API to directly deploy an archive (.tar.gz).

The API documentation to trigger this deployment can be found here
