Preview refers to a collection of environments that live in one VPC in one cloud account (AWS) or project (GCP).
- After you onboard to Coherence, we automatically create the
Previewcollection. It contains your integration branch, all of your branch previews, and any static environments that you create (all non-production environments).
- You can add as many Branch Previews and Static Environments to your
Previewcollection as you want (or as your quotas for cloud resources like SSL certs, databases, and IPs will allow).
Preview contains your integration branch, branch previews, and static environments because they all share the same infrastructure configuration. Most importantly, they share variables and secrets that you can manage on the "variables" tab. Each environment in
Preview automatically inherits these variables. Learn more about variables.
Infra Config Job Logs
You can view a history of changes to the infrastructure of each
Collection by clicking to the detail page and looking at the list of jobs, with their associate logs and (if applicable) errors. These are useful to see a history of changes made to your infra, why the changes were made, etc. For compliance purposes (e.g. SOC2) you will eventually need something just like this.
