Create a New Environment

This is a guide for setting up a new environment within an existing Section application.

1) Log Into Aperture

2) Click on the Application in which you want the new environment

The number of options that appear here will vary depending on the number of applications associated with your account.

Select Application

3) Click on the Create Environment button

4) Fill in New Environment Name

This environment name becomes the name of a git branch within your application repository for the new environment’s config. For a thorough explanation of how Section applications and environments use git, see our overview.

5) Fill in Hostname

Although Section supports many domains on a single environment, creating a new environment only requires one. If you want to associate your new environment with multiple domains, you can do so once the environment is up and running.
