Deployments

An application must be deployed in order to actually use it for testing or production purposes. After deploying an application, it can begin to answer inbound, and/or place outbound calls.


Deployments Table

Adding a new deployment immediately adds it to the deployment table. This lists all of the active deployments in a user's account. The table provides five different pieces of information about each deployment.


  1. Application Name: The name of the deployed application.

  2. Revision: This indicates which version of the application is actively deployed.

  3. Phone Number: For inbound dialing, this provides the number(s) tied to the deployment.

  4. Last Updated: This indicates the last time that the deployed version of the application was modified.

  5. Actions: The following actions are available for deployed applications:
    • Update ( : lets users edit their deployment.
    • Outbound ( ): takes users to a new page that provides a list of completed and pending calls. Each one has its own tab.
    • Delete ( ): deletes the deployment


Users can sort the deployments list based on Application Name, Phone Number, or Last Updated.
By default, Fuse sorts deployments ascending alphabetically by application name from A-Z. Click on the table column headers to toggle the sort order based on the values in that column.


Creating a New Deployment

Every deployment in Fuse is tied to a specific revision of an application.
Click on the button and Fuse prompts users with a window that enables them to select these values based on their available applications.


This generates a pop-up a window that contains the following fields:


  1. Select Application: Select the desired application for deployment from the drop-down menu.
    The list auto-populates with the applications owned by a user.

  2. Select Revision: Based on the application selected, the 'Select Revision' drop-down menu auto-populates with all of that application's revisions. By default, Fuse selects the latest version of the application.
    If users want to deploy an older version, simply select the appropriate revision from the drop-down menu.

  3. Phone Numbers: (Optional) For applications that handle inbound calls, users also need to assign one or more phone numbers to the deployment. This represents the number that end-users must dial in order to access the application.
    Outbound deployments do not require this step.


After making the desired selections, click the button to deploy the application.


Updating a Deployment


In Fuse, users can easily update an active deployment.
Locate the desired deployment in the Deployment Table and click the edit ( ) icon. This opens the settings window for that deployment.

Users have the option to change the application revision or assigned phone numbers.
To change the revision, choose a new revision from the drop-down menu.
To add or remove phone numbers from a deployment, select or deselect the desired phone numbers from the phone number list.


Click the button to commit the desired changes to the active deployment.


Deleting a Deployment

To disable an application from making outbound, or accepting inbound phone calls, users but delete the deployment associated with that application.

To delete a deployment, locate the desired deployment in the Deployments table and click the delete ( ) icon. This opens a pop-up window that asks users to confirm the deletion of your deployment.


Click to delete the deployment or to leave the application active.


Note: Deleting an application does alter the actual application in any way; it simply disables the application from accepting incoming or making outbound call. Deleting a deployment also frees up the phone numbers assigned to that deployment for other applications. These numbers remain available in the user's account.


View Outbound Call Logs

For applications that utilize outbound calling, users can access call logs detailing the completed and pending outbound calls for that deployment through the Outbound interface.
In the Deployments Table, click on the outbound ( ) icon for the appropriate deployment.

For Completed calls, users can refine the list by a specific date range.
There are also options to export the call data in the list (as a CSV file) and to Delete the data call.
The tabs for both Completed and Pending calls provide users with a search function, and users can change the number of records displayed per page (10, 25, 50, 100).


For more information about the Outbound interface, see the Outbound page.
