  • You may choose to define a cluster manually.

  • This form will allow you to create cluster definitions in the {WEBROOT}/conf.d/ subdirectory, one JSON text file per cluster defined.

  • You must complete this form once for each cluster to add if you are not using auto-define. If you have a composite cluster with two member clusters, that would imply a total of three definition files, one for the parent composite cluster, and one for each of the member clusters.
