As a gridscale Partner, you have complete control over your own Marketplace.
The Marketplace, is a feature which extends from the Partner Panel to the Tenant Panel. You can read more about Tenant features here. As a Partner you have complete control over the apps which are shown to your Tenants. There are a few options for getting apps into the Marketplace.
- Create your own and share them with your Tenants through the marketplace.
- Activate apps provided by other Partners (e.g ClusterControl)
- Activate apps provided by gridscale
We recommend that you set up a Tenant and enable the private app Feature Flag solely for testing applications pending review, before they have been published. This Tenant will have access to all apps that are available to within your Partner.
The app creation and review process
Read more about creating an app within the Tenant panel here.
Reviewing an app
Once the Tenant that is creating an app requests it for review, you will get a notification within the Marketplace menu in the Partner Panel that someone has requested a change. You can jump in to the Tenant to see details within the server, or review the app’s meta information within the Partner Panel.
The Global Marketplace
Apps that have been published by other Partners, are available wihtin your Partner Marketplace and disabled by default, you can choose whether they should be available to your Tenant by simply enabling the application.
Publish an app to the global Marketplace
To request the publication of an app within the global Marketplace, simply go to the apps details within the Partner Marketplace, and request the global publication. Once reviewed, the app will be availabe within the gridscale public Marketplace, and the Marketplace of all of our Partners.
