Jelastic import is a highly popular feature which, in particular, allows to install JPS packages (i.e. file with an environment or add-on description - its topology, configuration, application to be deployed, etc) directly through the dashboard. This time, in order to simplify new packages delivery, the already existing abilities to insert JPS manifests with local file or via direct URL were complemented with a new possibility to specify manifest content right during the import operation through the embedded JSON editor. This option is now available within the same-named tab of the Import window, where you can paste your code and edit it on fly or write a completely new one from the scratch.Jelastic JSON editor is complemented with basic editing tools, needed for comfortable work with code - find out the buttons at the top pane:
Once pasted, your code is automatically parsed for errors, which, if detected, will be marked with a red cross before the corresponding line (hover over it for additional information). Also, your JSON file is safely retained in browser local storage, so you can freely close Import frame without losing the stored data to continue your work with dashboard, and return to coding later on.
With an aim to make Import more notable and easier to access, this option was placed to the top of the tools dashboard pane alongside with the Create environment button. More info
