To ease the process of management, creating alternative (alias) for an environment or a distinct node is the best option. It clarifies which item I am working with, so I’ll never make a mistake while choosing the environment/node that needs to be adjusted.
This ability is especially useful while working with numerous nodes of the same type, possibly due to the multi-nodes feature. Let’s consider this on the example of defining the master and slave nodes in a DB cluster.
1. Select the necessary environment with a set of same-type nodes and expand the instances list:
2. Choose the node that I would like to add the label for and click the Set-Alias pencil pictogram next to it (or simply double-click on the Node ID: xxx string). Whatever I enter into the appeared input field, the value will be automatically saved.
3. In the same way, I can add a label for a whole environment (wherein the domain name will remain the same).
