The EC Groups tool allows you to logically group ECs, Workflows, Profiles, Inter Workflows, etc. The EC groups can be added here, in the web interface, or in the yaml configuration files. A third method to define EC groups, beside EC Group tool, is to use the mzcli command pico[hide]2.0[/hide] for an example of how to add an EC groups.
For EC Deployments that are defined in the Web Interface, you will automatically get an EC group with the same name as the EC Deployment. And all ECs in that EC Deployment will belong to the same EC Group. See EC Deployment Web Interface[hide]2.0[/hide].
In the following sections, we will explain the EC Groups tool and the configuration files.
The EC group's Editor shows the list of EC groups. From the list, you are able to add, delete or edit groups. You can sort the group names alphabetically. To refresh the list, click the Refresh button at the top of the list. You can also edit or delete groups
Click on the Add new EC Group button at the top of the list. A new window pops up where you can fill in the name of the EC Group. Click the Create button and the group becomes visible in the list. A notification informs you if the EC Group was successfully created. See also the mzcli command pico[hide]2.0[/hide] for an example of how to add an EC group.
To edit an existing EC group, click the Edit button for the EC Group that you want to modify and a new window is displayed. From this window, you can edit the group name. Click the Update button to close the window and submit the changes. The list is updated with your changes and a notification informs you if the update was successful.
To delete one or many groups, select the group to remove and click the Delete button at the top of the table.
In case you have defined EC Groups in the values.yaml files or EC Deployments in the Web Interface, the list will automatically show these EC groups, when they are started. For more information, see the subsections below.
When you deploy an EC Deployment via Execution Context Deployments (ECDs)[hide]2.0[/hide] in the web interface, by default, the EC Deployment becomes a member of an EC group with the same name as the EC Deployment. This can be overridden by adding other EC group(s) to the EC Deployment specification.
