As with many beta products, we are currently redesigning the Aiven for Apache Flink® experience, APIs, and CLI calls.
We are also updating all examples in the documentation to reflect these changes. During this process, you may encounter error messages as we introduce new improvements.
This section provides information on managing your Aiven for Apache Flink® applications.
Stop application deployment
To stop a deployment for your Flink application, follow these steps:
In the Applications tab on Aiven for Apache Flink service, select the application that contains the deployment you want to stop.
On the application landing screen, click Stop deployment.
On the Stop deployment screen, enable the option to Create a savepoint before stopping to preserve the current state of the application.
To stop a deployment without saving the current state of the application, disable the option for Create a savepoint before stopping and select Stop without savepoint.
Click Create savepoint & stop to initiate the stopping process.
The application status will display
Saving_and_stop_requested and then
Finished once the stopping process is completed.
Additionally, you can view a history of all the application deployments and statuses by clicking Deployment history.
Accessing deployment history
The Deployment History screen provides the following:
A list of all the deployments for an application
The user who created the application (created by)
Data and time of creation (created at)
If a savepoint was created or not
To view and delete the deployment history of an application, follow these steps:
In the Applications tab on Aiven for Apache Flink service, select the application for which you want to view the deployment history.
On the application landing screen, click Deployment History to view the deployment history.
To remove a specific deployment from the history, locate it in the deployment history screen and click on the Delete icon next to it.
To learn about the different application statuses, see <Flink application status>
