What is the Purpose of SloopEngine IDE Session?

The purpose of a SloopEngine IDE Session is to provide a secure development environment for writing and testing code within the SloopEngine platform. It enables users to obtain access to the codebase from their development server and make modifications to it, all from within the same platform.

Understanding SloopEngine IDE Session?

When you launch your IDE session for the first time the source code from the designated repository will be copied to your SloopEngine Node , and the source tree structure will be displayed in the SloopEngine IDE. The source code will not be stored by SloopEngine, it will be directly retrieved from your server. When a developer saves their code using the SloopEngine IDE, it will immediately be stored on the Node

Before launching the IDE session, it is crucial to ensure that:

  • The IP address of the SloopEngine Gateway has been granted access on the selected node.
  • The public key has been added to your Git Service provider account.

These steps must be completed before launching the IDE session to ensure that you have proper access to the code and the environment needed to make changes and test them.

Create SloopEngine IDE Session

To launch an IDE on the SloopEngine platform, you must first have a permission that has been created for you by a manager. This permission will grant you access to the necessary credential, node, and repository for your work, and will allow you to connect to the IDE and begin development.

To launch an IDE session:

  1. Access your SloopEngine account dashboard and navigate to the Workspaces section.
  2. Go to the specific workspace and navigate to the My Permission section.
  3. In the Action column, click on the IDE icon for the permission you want to use.
  4. Enter valid details and click Launch button.

This will launch the SloopEngine IDE, which you can then use. You can track the created IDE session inside the Permission view.

Tracking SloopEngine IDE Session

Tracking an IDE session in SloopEngine is a powerful way for project managers to monitor the progress of their team's work and ensure that it is aligned with the project's goals and objectives. With the ability to view and manage the access permissions for different resources, project managers can control who has access to the IDE session and ensure that only authorized users are able to work on it.By using the IDE session manager in SloopEngine, project managers or leads can track how much time is being spent on specific features or bugs.

To Track the IDE Sessions:

  1. Access your SloopEngine account dashboard and navigate to the Workspaces section.
  2. Go to the specific workspace and navigate to the Permission section.
  3. To view IDE sessions, click on the desired permission ID and navigate to the IDE Session section.
