Module V - Automation and Optimization (Advanced)¶
Instead of working with SlipStream via web browser interface, you may want to use the SlipStream Command Line Interface (CLI) or the SlipStream REST API. These are useful for scripting or interacting with SlipStream via another service.
This module provides an overview of SlipStream API and demonstrates how to authenticate with SlipStream and manage the full lifecycle of applications. The module also covers the SlipStream build image feature, which optimizes application deployments by minimizing start up latencies.
Cloud applications, like all things in the universe, break or go wrong. See the section on debugging of applications to understand how to troubleshoot problems efficiently.
If you’ve not done so already, you might want to follow Module IV to learn about scalable applications.
