Dashboard Information

The dashboard shows:

  • The health of the service instance, in the banner at the top of the dashboard. The health is determined using the health endpoint added to the service instance’s backing app by Spring Boot Actuator.
  • The Spring Cloud Gateway for VMware Tanzu version of the service instance (this is either the tile version used to create the service instance, or the last tile version to which the service instance has been upgraded).
  • Under Service Instance Configuration, the URL of the service instance’s Spring Cloud Gateway backing app or apps (the Base URL), the count of backing apps for the service instance (the HA Count), and any App Security Groups (ASGs) used by the service instance (Application Security Groups).
  • The Single Sign-On for VMware Tanzu plan that the Gateway service instance has been configured to use, or “Disabled” if the Gateway service has not been configured to use Single Sign-On for VMware Tanzu, under SSO.
  • The routes configured on the service instance, under Gateway Routes. The routes are determined using the gateway/routes Actuator endpoint on the service instance’s backing app.
