Manage Runtime Groups
Create, update, and delete runtime groups through the
Runtime Manager in Konnect.
You can find the list of all runtime groups in the Runtime Manager. If you don’t
have an Enterprise account, the Runtime Manager will only ever have one
runtime group entry.
From a runtime group details page, you can
create and manage runtime instances
and configure any global entities
in the group.
Create a runtime group
Runtime groups are created from the Runtime Manager section of the Konnect manager.
Click Create Runtime Group.
Name the runtime group.
Each runtime group in the organization must have a unique name.
Add any labels in
key:value pair format.
For example, you might set
location is the key
us-west is the value.
These labels are completely custom. Set anything that you need.
Edit a runtime group
In Konnect, open
Click the action menu and select Edit.
Edit the group details, then click Update.
Delete a runtime group
When a runtime group is deleted, all associated entities are also deleted.
This includes all entities configured in the Runtime Manager for this group. We
recommend backing up your runtime group configuration before deleting the group.
Runtime instances that are still active when the group is deleted will not be
terminated, but they will be orphaned. They will continue processing traffic
using the last configuration they received until they are either connected to
a new runtime group or manually shut down.
You cannot delete the default runtime group.
Warning: Deleting a group is irreversible. Make sure that you are
certain that you want to delete the group, and that all entities and runtime
instances in the have been accounted for.
Use decK to back up your configuration before deleting the runtime group:
deck dump \
--konnect-password <pass> \
--konnect-email <email> \
--konnect-runtime-group-name <group-name> \
This command generates a state file for the runtime group’s entity
configuration that looks like this:
- username: DianaPrince
- username: WallyWest
- connect_timeout: 60000
In Konnect, open
Click the action menu icon and select Delete.
Enter the group name, then confirm that you want to delete it.
