Challenge: Complex Deployments -Today deployment of twx apps is challenging due to manual dependency management; little visibility into apps and environments; complexity and slow speed of deployment
Value: Rapid scalable deployments -Accelerate application deployment -Simple UI-based environment and solution management -Site-wide visibility of apps and environments
Steps involved: -Develop projects locally -Package artifacts and dependencies -Publish App to Cloud -Deliver to your ThingWorx environments
-> -Update to latest ThingWorx -Connect to Solution Central -Begin Publishing -No additional licensing Q: Does it also package up prerequisite extensions? A: It doesn’t package or build them, but they are identified as dependencies before publish/deployment. Multiple solutions building modular structure through dependencies Q: Each published project is packaged as an extension? A: That is correct Q: Is it also possible to manage deployment of collection permissions & OOTB entities permission/configuration through Solution Central ? A: Whatever can be member of the project can be packaged and published Q: Can we package locally without publish to cloud A: Yes. Just don't register to Solution Center Q: How to install a solution offline ? A: One can package locally and install them as extensions Q: Is Solution Central a Cloud only application? A: Yes, but the packaging capability is available in ThingWorx Q: Do all customers have access to this solution or do they need to have a cloud contract? A: All customers can access as part of their ThingWorx license Q: Will customers be able to install their own on-prem implementationn of the Solution Central Web? Is using our cloud required? A: The Solution Central portal will only be available in the PTC Cloud, but the ability to package is part of the platform and can be done on prem.
