All of these actions can be done from any location - all you need is your mobile device with  Internet access and the Jelastic App installed. And due to the application’s intuitive design, you can easily figure out how to use it in a matter of seconds, without any guidance. However, if you still would like to get the complete info - we are always ready to help you with this, just proceed below.

Start Working with App

Download the Jelastic Mobile App from the App Store. Once you launch the application, the login screen will be shown, where you need to select the type of a platform you are using with the help of the same-named tabs at the top. Depending on the section chosen, perform the following:
  • for Public Cloud - find your hosting service provider within the list of the available ones and enter your email and password
  • for Private Cloud - type the correct address for your private Cloud (according to the app.{platform_domain} format) and specify the corresponding account credentials

Click Log in to start authorization.

If you still don’t have a Jelastic account, you can create a new one at any of the Public Jelastic installations directly via your mobile device, by using the Sign Up option in the bottom left corner of the screen.

In the appeared form, choose the preferable hosting provider, enter your email address and the password you’d like to use. Confirm your decision by clicking on the Sign Up button beneath.

Depending on the registration configurations of the chosen service provider, you may either:
  • be logged into your new account immediately so you can just start working with it
  • be required to additionally activate your account. In this case, navigate to your email inbox, find the appropriate email with an account activation link inside and click it. As a result, you’ll be redirected to a simple activation form, where you need to specify the desired password and confirm it (in addition, you may be optionally asked to pass the captcha or SMS verification).

Also, if you’ve forgotten your password, our mobile app includes an embedded option for its restoration. For that, click the corresponding Reset password string in the bottom right corner and type your login (email address) in the appeared pop up frame:

After confirming your request with the OK button, you’ll immediately receive a new password via the specified address.

Navigation Pane

Once you are successfully logged in, you can access all the features, supported by the application, through the navigation pane at the top:
  • switch between the main screens by tapping on the Jelastic logo at the center and choosing the required option (i.e. the Environments or Billing Info one) within the appeared list (or just flip between them through swiping the screen aside).
  • view the detailed information on your account with the Info button (  ) to the left
  • move back to the start application page by clicking the Sign Out option at the top right corner

Now, let’s consider all the abovementioned sections and options in more details.

The Environments screen is shown immediately after you are logged in:

It comprises the list of all of your environments, supplied with the following brief information:
  • name (or an alias if any is specified) of an environment
  • environment domain name
  • current resources usage (where the digits indicate the used amount / maximum limit of cloudlets respectively) with the following color legend applied for better intelligibility:
    • green - normal usage
