URL migration

praveensleeps
asked this on June 18, 2013 05:29

I have deployed couple of my Apps in Cloudfoundry V1. Now as the Eco system is getting migrated to V2 I want to know what would happen to my access URLs.
Following are the APPs and their access URL's I have as of now.

App Name        App URL

Platform            shopzyplatform.cloudfoundry.com
Testplatform       testplatform.cloudfoundry.com
imagebox          imagebox.cloudfoundry.com
Now even after migrating to V2 I want to continue with above highlighted URLs  as some of my clients are pointing to these URLs directly.


Kindly let me know how can I retain these URLs...

Hi  Praveen, 

As a part of the migration to V2 the default domian changes from cloudfoundry.com to cfapps.io . you can use the default V2 domain or use your custom domain. Sorry for the inconvenience. 

Thanks, 

Bala

As I posted on StackOverflow:

Unfortunately after June 30th, those URLs will no longer work as the datacenter where Cloud Foundry v1 is running is being decommissioned.

If you migrate the apps to v2 (available now at run.pivotal.io and you can login with your v1 credentials) then you will get new URLs for your apps which end in cfapps.io by default. However, v2 also now supports custom Domains. Unfortunately you will not be able to use cloudfoundry.com as the root domain as that is already taken, but you could choose your own custom domain for your new v2 "organisation" and then map your three apps onto that.

Just to comment that this really sucks. A month ago, there was no decent information on DNS migration, nor was it even possible to use custom URLs, and now with weeks to go, the domain I'm using (openmentor.cloudfoundry.com) is going to be killed. The lack (absence!) of transitioning support is a huge pain, and I'm not sure how I can trust CF with this app again.

I'm also interested in being able to keep one of the previous cloudfoundry.com URLs accessible for a while longer. We finally got our application successfully running on V2 after some problems, and so we were still using the old cloudfoundry.com URL up to this point. We'd be more comfortable with access with the URL for a couple more weeks,

Can you tell me what's happened with the redirect? I noticed that the old service has been pulled already. I was hoping I'd have a chance to migrate the latest data tonight. Evidently it's been pulled already, which is a pity. Also I did confirm that I'd like the redirect from openmentor.cloudfoundry.com -> openmentor.cfapps.io. Can that please be set up as soon as possible.

Hi lnramirez , 

Do you have a local copy of your application, then you should be able to push it V2. If that's the case please check out our getting started guides: 

http://docs.cloudfoundry.com/docs/dotcom/getting-started.html

 

thanks,
