Applications

An application is a way for you to manage multiple different objectives from a single Floodgate account. For example, you can create a separate Floodgate application for each of the applications/development projects you are working on within your business.

Inside each application you will have environment and flags. To learn more, read Environments.

The diagram below show how applications are structured and how they are separated from each other.

  6. Enter a description for the application if required.

You can restrict who has access to the application by assigning the relevant team members permissions on the Team Members Permission page. By default new applications are not accessible by anyone other than the account Owner and Administrators.
