Play deployment to CloudBees

I followed the instructions to deploy the Play application to CloudBees.

CloudBees SDK

I installed this SDK to interact with the cloud infrastructure. So this created a profile based
on my CloudBees account.

Mohans-MacBook-Pro:cloudbees-sdk-1.5.2 radhakrishnan$ bees help
# CloudBees SDK version: 1.5.2
# CloudBees Driver version: 1.3.8

You have not created a CloudBees configuration profile, let’s create one now…
Enter your default CloudBees API end point [us | eu]: us
Enter your CloudBees account email address:
Enter your CloudBees account password:

Application deployed to CloudBees


Provisioned MySQL on CloudBees


The parameters I was supposed to set

Mohans-MacBook-Pro:cloudbees-sdk-1.5.2 radhakrishnan$ bees config:set -a mohanr/playconf AppDynamics=false
Application config parameters for mohanr/playconf: saved

Application Parameters:
Runtime Parameters:

The settings to enable evolutions did not work and I could not access the application.

So I switched off the evolution facility and removed 1.sql and then deployed the application. I think this evolution facility can be switched off in application.conf also.

Application Parameters:
Runtime Parameters:
