Getting Started

Porter offers a simple way to create preview environments for your app. When enabled, preview environments are by default created automatically for every pull request that is opened in your GitHub repository.

A unique URL is generated for each PR that you use to access your app and test changes in a production-like environment before merging. Each preview environment is created in isolation on your cluster and is destroyed once the pull request is closed or merged.

Enabling Preview Environments

  1. Navigate to the Settings tab of your app on the Porter dashboard.
  2. Click the button to Enable preview environments.
  3. Define or override any values for your app that should be used in newly created preview environments.
  4. Save your changes by clicking Enable Previews and committing the workflow to your GitHub repository.
