CloudCenter 4.8 has reached End of Life (EOL) as of November 14, 2018. See End of Support Notices for additional context.

Terminate Protection


CloudCenter provides a feature to prevent the termination of nodes when an application is in the process of being deployed. This feature allows you to prevent an inadvertent stoppage from the CloudCenter platform and thus avoid interrupting production deployments.

The Terminate Protection feature is only applicable to N-tier jobs.

If you enable both the aging policy and the prevent termination feature, the prevent termination feature takes precedence.

The General Settings section of the Deploy form (see Step 3 of Deploying an Application) has a Terminate/Suspend Protection toggle that is off by default. Click the toggle to switch it from off to on or vice versa. 

Termination Notes

Be aware of the automatic termination by the CloudCenter platform in the following cases:

  • The CloudCenter platform terminates VMs randomly once a scale down is executed.
  • The CloudCenter platform does not terminate jobs when the user runs out of credits.

Enable Terminate Protection

If a termination policy executes on a VM on which terminate protection is enabled, then protection overrides termination.

You can also prevent termination by selecting the Enable Terminate Protection option in the Deployments page from the Actions dropdown list and confirm your intention in the Enable Terminate Protection popup. The following screenshot shows this Actions drop-down list.

When you enable the Terminate Protection feature, you will not be allowed to Stop, Suspend, or Migrate the deployment. However, you can promote the deployment, if required, to a different environment.

Allow Termination

To allow termination, select the Disable Terminate Protection option and confirm your intention to Disable Terminate Protection popup.

Terminate Existing Deployment

You can terminate an existing deployment using the Terminate existing deployment option.

You can set this option when promoting or migrating an application. See Deployment and VM States for additional context.

This feature has the following options:

  • TerminateTerminates the deployment

  • Hide: Just hide this job (for jobs with Errors)

  • Terminate and Hide: Terminates and hides the deployment

  • No labels
