Getting Started with Apps Manager

Page last updated:

Overview

Apps Manager is a web-based tool to help manage organizations, spaces, applications, services, and users. Apps Manager provides a visual interface for performing the following subset of functions available through the Cloud Foundry Command Line Interface (cf CLI):

  • Orgs: You can create and manage orgs.
  • Spaces: You can create, manage, and delete spaces.
  • Apps: You can scale apps, bind apps to services, manage environment variables and routes, view logs and usage information, start and stop apps, and delete apps.
  • Services: You can bind services to apps, unbind services from apps, choose and edit service plans, and rename and delete service instances.
  • Users: You can invite new users, manage user roles, and delete users.

To access Apps Manager as the Admin user, see the Logging in to Apps Manager topic.

Understanding Permissions

Your ability to perform actions in Apps Manager depends on your user role and the feature flags that the Admin sets.

The table below shows the relationship between specific org and space management actions and the non-Admin user roles who can perform them. A non-Admin user must be a member of the org and space to perform these actions.

Admin users can perform all of these actions using either the cf CLI or by logging into Apps Manager as an Org Manager, using the UAA Admin credentials.

Space Managers assign and remove users from spaces by setting and unsetting their roles within the space.
