You can test your application directly from the Services page using the DNS status card.
Estimated time to complete Step 9 and finish tutorial: 10 minutes.
Before securing a Load Balancer, verify that you accomplished the tasks in the previous tutorial steps. Using the DuploCloud Portal, confirm that:
In the Tenant list box, on the upper-left side of the DuploCloud Portal, select the dev01 Tenant that you created.
Note that if you skipped Step 7 and/or Step 8, the configuration in the Other Settings and DNS cards appears slightly different from the configuration depicted in the screenshot below. These changes do not impact you in testing your application, as these steps are optional. You can proceed to test your app with no visible change in the output of the deployable application.
- 1.In the DuploCloud Portal, navigate to DevOps -> Containers -> EKS/Native. The Services page displays.
- 2.From the Name column, select demo-service.
- 3.Click the Load Balancers tab. The ALB Load Balancer configuration is displayed.

It can take from five to fifteen (5-15) minutes for the DNS Name to become active once you launch your browser instance to test your application.
Congratulations! You have just launched your first web service on DuploCloud!
In this tutorial, your objective was to create a cloud environment to deploy an application for testing purposes, and to understand how the various components of DuploCloud work together.
In the previous steps, you:
In this tutorial, you created many artifacts for testing purposes. When you are ready, clean them up so that another person can run this tutorial from the start, using the same names for Infrastructure and Tenant.
- 1.To delete the dev01 tenant follow these instructions and then return to this page. As you learned, the Tenant segregates all work in one isolated environment, so deleting the Tenant that you created cleans up most of your artifacts.
- 2.Finish by deleting the NONPROD Infrastructure. In the DuploCloud Portal, navigate to Administrator -> Infrastructure. Click the Action menu icon () for the NONPROD row and select Delete.
The NONPROD Infrastructure is deleted and you have completed the clean-up of your test environment.
