Instance Dashboard

The instance dashboard displays additional information about your instance such as the instance console, instance ID, network information, SSH access, SFTP and volume information, and advanced operations. .

Navigate to the instance dashboard by following these steps:

  1. Click the Environments tab on the navigation menu to the left.
  2. Select the environment the container instance you want to access is in.
  3. Click the Containers tab under the environment name.
  4. Select the container from the list.
  5. Click the Instances tab under the container name.
  6. Select the specific instance you want to view from the list.

Here you will find information on:

  • Instance ID and instance networking.
  • SSH credentials for the Two-Way Console.
  • Volume and SFTP Information, if the instance has an associated volume.
  • Advanced operations, which currently includes instance migrations.


Instance Migration

To migrate your instance to another server in the same cluster you can use the Advanced dropdown to uncover the instance migration wizard. Using this wizard you can select where you would like to send your instance and whether or not you'd like to also migrate the contents of the instances volume.

This will shut down this instance during the entire migration period, which could take several minutes.
