Creating a Stack

Last updated: 2020-08-13 09:31:59

    You need to create a stack when you use TIC for the first time. Stacks can also be created based on your business requirements.


    Before creating a stack, you must authorize TIC on the Settings page in the TIC console.


    1. Log in to the TIC console.
    2. In the left sidebar, choose Orchestration -> Stacks to go to the Stacks page.
    3. Click New stack. On the New Stack page, perform the following steps.

    Step 1: Select Mode

    1. Provider: the default value is Tencent Cloud. Currently, only Tencent Cloud is available.
    2. Region: select a region where all resources in the stack will reside.
    3. Specify Template: specify how you want to create the stack.
      • URL: only Tencent Cloud COS and GitHub are supported. Only one file can be obtained at a time.
      • Private templates: select a private template. For more information, see Template Management.
      • Public templates: select a public template. For more information, see Template Management.
      • Enter template content: enter infrastructure code. Multi-file compiling and common shortcuts (such as Ctrl+S, Ctrl+Z, and Ctrl+X) are supported.
    4. Click Next to go to Step 2.

    Step 2: Configure Stack

    1. Modify resource parameters in the template as needed. A stack draft named "draft-xxx" is automatically created on the backend to save your code.
    2. Click Next to go to Step 3.

    Step 3: Plan

    TIC will verify the syntax, simulate a stack creation, and return the plan result. If the result meets you requirements, click Next to go to Step 4.

    Step 4: Apply

    1. Enter the stack name and description.
    2. Click Confirm.
    3. In the confirmation dialog box, click Confirm. TIC will then submit a creation request, and you will be redirected to the Event tab of the new stack.
