Tutorial Structure

This guide is setup into five sections:

Determining your architecture and process

This section will determine how you would like Prodvana setup as well as what your release processes will be.

Setting Up Prodvana Runtimes

The first step is to setup a link between Prodvana and your infrastructure. This will either be through IaC or manually in the Prodvana WebUI.

Linking Docker Repositories

Prodvana needs to know where packages are available. This step is useful so that you can display image names correctly. Prodvana does not proxy image pull requests.

Setting Up Prodvana Applications and Services

In this step we will configure your Prodvana Application and Services for deployment.

Initiating Prodvana

The last part of setup will focus on initiating Prodvana on demand or from a CI system.
