Warning: Pivotal Application Service (PAS) v2.8 is no longer supported because it has reached the End of General Support (EOGS) phase as defined by the Support Lifecycle Policy. To stay up to date with the latest software and security updates, upgrade to a supported version.

This guide provides instructions for deploying, running, and managing apps and services with Pivotal Application Service (PAS).

Note: To learn app deployment concepts, see the Getting Started with VMware Tanzu Application Service tutorial on the VMware Tanzu website.


Developing, running, and managing apps on PAS may include:

  • Deploying and scaling apps with diverse languages, frameworks, and dependencies

  • Finding software services in the services marketplace, such as databases, email, or message servers

  • Creating your own PAS service based on an external server

  • Creating service instances and binding them to your apps

  • Streaming app logs to an external log management service

  • Troubleshooting app deployment and health

If you do these things, you are a PAS developer, and the contents of this guide are for you.
