Using Pivotal Platform Dev (Legacy)
Note: This topic applies only to Pivotal Platform Dev v0.30 or earlier. If you are using a later version of Pivotal Platform Dev, see Using Pivotal Platform Dev.
This topic describes how to use Pivotal Platform Dev to target instances, push an app, and list available marketplace services.
Note: To use your Pivotal Platform Dev instance, you must be running the Pivotal Platform Dev VM. In a terminal window, run
cf dev start to boot the VM.
To log in to your Pivotal Platform Dev instance:
Start your Pivotal Platform Dev instance.
Target your Pivotal Platform Dev instance’s API by running:
cf login -a https://api.local.pcfdev.io --skip-ssl-validation
The terminal displays your API system domain when you run
cf dev start. In most cases, your API system domain is
api.local.pcfdev.io, but it may differ slightly depending on your host system configuration.
To push an app to your Pivotal Platform Dev instance:
cf push APP-NAME
APP-NAMEis the name of the app you want to push.
For more information about pushing apps to your deployment, see Pushing an App.
For more information about using the cf CLI, see Getting Started with the cf CLI.
Pivotal Platform Dev supports Marketplace services, giving developers access to Redis, RabbitMQ, and MySQL.
To view the list of available services:
For more information about using Marketplace services, see Using Services in Pivotal Platform Dev.
When you start Pivotal Platform Dev, Apps Manager starts automatically. To access Apps Manager:
https://apps.local.pcfdev.io/in your browser.
Note: If Pivotal Platform Dev started on a domain other than
local.pcfdev.io, the Apps Manager URL is different. For example, if you log in to Pivotal Platform Dev at
api.local3.pcfdev.io, navigate to
https://apps.local3.pcfdev.io/in your browser to access Apps Manager.
The first time you open Apps Manager after starting the Pivotal Platform Dev, your browser shows a dialog or page about the security certificate. Choose to connect to the Apps Manager URL. Alternatively, you can add the Pivotal Platform Dev certificate to your OS certificate store by running:
cf dev trust
