This vignette is applicable to Sage employees who are deploying the application on our Shiny Pro server. To learn about the server and how to get credentials, please read the Confluence documentation.

The app is deployed on the server through the following steps:

  1. ssh into the Shiny Pro server and navigate to /home/kwoo/ShinyApps/dccvalidator-app
  2. git pull changes from GitHub
  3. To ensure packages are up-to-date, open an R session and run renv::restore()

You may need to run touch restart.txt afterward to ensure the application is restarted.

If you want to deploy the app in a different location (e.g. because you want to stand up a new version that is customized for a different community):

  1. ssh into the Shiny Pro server
  2. Create a folder under /home/yourusername/ShinyApps
  3. git clone the repository into the folder you’ve created
  4. If needed, make any changes to the application’s behavior by editing the files, or check out a branch that contains your changes
  5. To ensure packages are up-to-date, open an R session and run renv::restore()
  6. To ensure each connection has its own R process, the Sage Shiny Server administrator must configure the utilization scheduler. This is not necessary for the app to function, but might improve performance.
location /users {
  location /yourusername/yourappname {
    utilization_scheduler 1 0.7 10;
  }
}

Again, you may need to run touch restart.txt afterward to ensure the application is restarted.
