App Installation

An AppInstallation is an entity type that indicates if an app described by an AppDefinition is installed in a space environment.

To get an overview, you can watch our video on the AppDefinition and AppInstallation.

App installations can store space environment specific configuration variables as installation parameters.

Every AppInstallation is linked to an AppDefinition and will immediately reflect any changes made to that app definition. If an AppDefinition is deleted, all corresponding app installations will also be removed.

App installations are copied in the process of environment creation. This means that when you install an app in the main environment and then create a staging environment based on that environment, both the app installation and its parameters will be copied to the staging environment.

The Content Management API can be used to manage app installations for a space.
