  • Hosted Apps

    v55 v56  
    33= Hosted Apps at !SourceForge.net = 
    5 Over the years, [wiki:"What is SourceForge.net?" SourceForge.net] staff and users have identified a number of well-written [wiki:"What is Open Source software?" Open Source] applications which are useful to developers for personal use and critical to meeting the needs of Open Source software development projects.  Through the Hosted Apps service, !SourceForge.net provides hosted instances of these applications, allowing projects and developers to easily gain access to these tools, without incurring the overhead of handling the software installation, day-to-day maintenance and version upgrades. 
     5[http://sourceforge.net/blog/hosted-apps-retirement/ Hosted Apps will be retired on 2012-09-01]. 
    7 Hosted Apps are available to all !SourceForge.net projects and developers (project members).  Project-specific instances of Hosted Apps should be used for content related to that Open Source project.  Developer-specific instances of Hosted Apps may be used for personal content. 
    9 = Supported Applications = 
    11 We've selected the following applications for inclusion as Hosted Apps.  All of these applications are available for immediate use by projects and project developers on an [wiki:"Hosted Apps#Management" opt-in] basis.

    32 = Authentication = 
    34 Please note that !SourceForge.net requires HTTP authentication on https traffic to All hosted apps.  This includes the Mantis SOAP server.  If you intend on using the SOAP services on your Mantis instance, please ensure that you have your SOAP client passe your credentials via HTTP plain authentication instead of as SOAP session parameters. 
    36 = Features = 
    38  * Any of the [wiki:"Hosted Apps#SupportedApplications" supported applications] are available to projects and developers immediately after a simple [wiki:"Hosted Apps#Management" opt-in]. 
    39  * All applications are tied to !SourceForge.net user accounts; it is not necessary to create accounts in each application. 
    40  * !SourceForge.net staff handle application maintenance and upgrades, leaving you to focus on actually using the application rather than maintaining its install. 
    41  * An easy-to-use [wiki:"Hosted Apps#Backups" backup facility] is provided so you can access your application data, so you can make your own backups on-demand and are not permanently locked-in to using our service. 
    43 = Management = 
    45 Opt-in, opt-out and administrative access is controlled from the !SourceForge.net site using the Hosted App management interface.  Permissions and settings for each Hosted App are controlled using the administrative interface provided within the Hosted App. 
    47 Project administrators may manage the Hosted Apps for their project as follows: 
    48  1. Go to your Project Summary page. 
    49  1. From the Project Admin menu pulldown, select the Feature Settings menu item . 
    50  1. To Opt-in: Under the Available Features tab, select the checkbox by the application you wish to use.  Your application will be available (with links on the Enabled Features page and in your project menus) about a minute later. 
    52 Developers may opt-in and manage personal instances of Hosted Apps from their [https://sourceforge.net/account/hosted-apps My Hosted Apps] page. 
    54 = Backups = 
    56 While !SourceForge.net maintains routine database and file backups for all !SourceForge.net systems, we encourage users and projects to make their own backups on a regular basis.  Backups of Hosted Apps data may be made easily from the Backups section of the [#Management Hosted Apps management page].  Direct filesystem and database access to Hosted Apps is not provided. 
    58 = Getting Help = 
    60  * [wiki:"Support"] 
    61  * [wiki:"Request an enhancement"] 
    62  * [wiki:"Open Source at SourceForge.net" Get the source code for a Hosted App]
