After a successful Installation, you can access Golive from the project left sidebar:

If you don’t see Golive in the sidebar, enable it in Project Settings/Golive menu

The “Environment Matrix” view is showing all Environments related to your Jira project (a filter on your current Jira Project is applied by default). You may notice some examples of Environments, or no Environment at all.

Let’s create our first Environment!

Add Environment

In order to create a new Environment, click on the “Add Environment” button:

Select a Category

Select a Category or create a new one:

Select an Application

Select an Application or create a new one.

Each Environment is linked to a single Application that can also be a tier / module / component. The granularity should be at the level where you want to track your version deployments.

You may think “but I have several Applications running in the same Environment”. There is nothing to worry about, you can safely create one Golive Environment per Application. Grouping is done using the Environment Category and/or additional Attributes you can define at a later stage.

If you create a new Application, you need to select the Jira Project where the versions will be taken from. If you are not using Versions in your Jira Projects, you can select “None”.

Your Environment Name is auto-generated based on the Application and the Category selected. You can rename it, but we recommend renaming only when you have several Environments sharing the same Application and Category.

Select the Deployed Version and Status

Optionally, select the current Deployed Version and Status of your Environment.

Environment is created!

Your New Environment is now available:

And visible in your Project Views:

Cross-project Environment Visibility

Environments can be visible across multiple Jira Projects. Define which Environments should be visible in the “Project Settings” section, by mapping Applications:
