Creating a new Application

You can create a new application using File > New Application: this opens a new Application tab, with an empty application definition.

When you are connected to an IceGrid registry, you can also use File > New Application with Default Templates from Registry. This also opens new Application tab with a brand new application definition. This new application contains a copy of all the templates definitions contained in the IceGrid registry default template file. See IceGrid.Registry.DefaultTemplates.

  • Name
    The name of the application. This field is not editable for live applications.
