CG Ignite Platform is a Low-Code Application development environment built on Heroku. Use Ignite to rapidly build OData 4.0 services for Salesforce Connect consumption (amongst many other workflows). CG Ignite Editor is an add-on for managing the CG Ignite Runtime.
CG Ignite Editor only works with the CG Ignite Runtime. It’s a simple 1-button install to complete the installation process end-to-end.
The CG Ignite Editor will not work with any existing applications, unless it’s an existing CG Ignite Runtime app provided through the Heroku Button install.
Using Deploy Button
Proper setup requires clicking the “Deploy To Heroku” button. Advanced users can install this Editor to an existing Ignite Runtime using the CLI.
Using Heroku CLI
$ heroku addons:create cgignite
This command only works if you’ve already installed the CG Ignite Runtime.
Accessing the CG Ignite Editor
Access the editor by navigating to Heroku Dashboard and selecting the application in question. Select CG Ignite Editor from the Add-ons menu. This authenticates with Heroku SSO and launches CG Ignite Editor cloud dashboard. From the editor dashboard, you’ll be able to manage flows within the CG Ignite Runtime app located in your Heroku account.
Access CG Ignite Editor from Heroku CLI
You may also access the dashboard via the CLI using the following example, subbing in the name of your deployed CG Ignite Runtime application:
$ heroku addons:open cgignite-cubed-98688
Opening cgignite for sharp-mountain-4005
This command only works if you’ve already installed the CG Ignite Runtime using the Heroku Button.
Monitoring and logging
You can monitor CG Ignite activity within the Heroku log-stream by using the following CLI command:
$ heroku logs -t | grep 'cgignite'
This Add-on requires our Ignite Runtime app. You must follow the installation process after clicking the deployment button.
If you launch the dashboard from the Add-ons menu the CG Ignite Editor will login using Heroku SSO. If you access the editor without first logging in to Heroku, you’ll land on an unauthorized page requesting that you login with Heroku.
Clear your browser storage, and install the Runtime & Editor bundle using the “Deploy To Heroku” button.
Migrating between plans
Application owners should carefully manage the migration timing to ensure proper application function during the migration process.
heroku addons:upgrade command to migrate to a new plan.
$ heroku addons:upgrade cgignite:newplan
-----> Upgrading cgignite:newplan to sharp-mountain-4005... done, v18 ($49/mo)
Your plan has been updated to: cgignite:newplan
Removing the add-on
You can remove CG Ignite via the CLI:
This will destroy all associated data and cannot be undone!
$ heroku addons:destroy cgignite
-----> Removing cgignite from sharp-mountain-4005... done, v20 (free)
Before removing CG Ignite, you can export your data by using “Export” feature in the main menu.
