3. Configure Your Project

Once you have Created a Project you may want to make changes to the container running on the Section Platform.

You can make changes to your project's containers using the Kubernetes Dashboard provided in the Section Console or by using the Kubernetes API. This doc will walk through how to make changes using the Kubernetes dashboard, for more information on how to connect via API see our Kubernetes API documentation.

Launch the Kubernetes Dashboard

From the Section Console select Launch Dashboard On the Projects page.


This will load up the native Kubernetes dashboard for this project. From here you can see and interact with all of your deployments.

Edit Deployment

On the Kubernetes Dashboard you should see your deployment. In this example and if you chose to deploy our example container the deployment is named section-project-deployment and is running the image sectionio/my-first-distributed-app:latest. If you wanted to change out this image for another you will need to edit the deployment.


Edit the deployment YAML Section generated when you deployed your first project. To change the container image you will need to update the container spec with the image and containerPort.


Select Update and your changes will be applied to your deployment. You can then use the Kubernetes dashboard to monitor the changes happening to your workload in real time.

Your application will be running on a select set of Section's available global edge locations. In the next step we will walk through how to Update App Locations so you can optimize your deployment for performance and make full use of Section's dynamic and distributed platform.
