The appcenter component enables centralized management of application deployment and application lifecycle across multiple clusters. You can manage the appcenter component in the Application Center module of the Container Service for Kubernetes (ACK) console. This topic describes the appcenter component and provides usage notes and release notes for the component.

Introduction

Application Center provides a unified portal for your applications. This helps you understand how your applications are deployed in a unified view. Application Center allows you to view your applications in a global manner. You can also view the deployment status and changes of all Kubernetes subresources allocated to each application. In addition, Git and Helm charts are used to deploy applications in ACK clusters based on application versions. This allows you to publish or roll back applications that are deployed in ACK clusters.

Usage notes

For more information about how to use appcenter, see Application Center overview.
