How to deploy a container with Salad API

Prerequisites

Before you begin, make sure you have the following:

  • An account with Salad Cloud. If you don't have one yet, you can sign up for a free trial at https://portal.salad.com .
  • A project in Salad Cloud. If you don't have a project yet, you can create one by following the instructions in the Salad Cloud documentation.
  • A container image that you want to deploy. If you don't have a container image yet, you can build one using a tool like Docker.

Step 1: Obtain Your API Key

To authenticate your API requests, you'll need an API key. To obtain your API key, follow these steps:

  • Log in to your Salad Cloud account at https://portal.salad.com
  • Click on your profile in the top right corner of the page, then click API Keys.
  • Copy the API key that is displayed. You'll need this in the next step.

Step 2: Deploy the Container Image

To deploy the container image, you'll need to send a POST request to the following URL:

https://api.salad.com/api/public/organizations/organization_name/projects/project_name/containers \

Replace {organization_name} and {project_name} with the name of your organization and project, respectively.

Here's an example of how to send the POST request using curl :

curl --request POST \
     --url https://api.salad.com/api/public/organizations/organization_name/projects/project_name/containers \
     --header 'accept: application/json' \
     --header 'content-type: application/json'

Replace {API_KEY} with your API key, and {CONTAINER_IMAGE_URL} with the URL of the container image you want to deploy.

Step 3: Check the Deployment Status

After you send the POST request, Salad Cloud will begin the process of deploying your container image. To check the status of the deployment, you can send a GET request to the following URL:

https://api.salad.com/api/public/organizations/organization_name/projects/project_name/containers/container_group_name \

Replace {organization_name} , {project_name} , and {container_id} with the name of your organization, project, and the container you want to check, respectively.

Here's an example of how to send the GET request using curl :

curl --request GET \
     --url https://api.salad.com/api/public/organizations/organization_name/projects/project_name/containers/container_group_name \
     --header 'accept: application/json'

Replace {API_KEY} with your API key.

The response will include the current status of the deployment, as well as other details about the container.
