Deploy a service

Estimated reading time: 1 minute

You can deploy and monitor your services from the UCP web UI. In this example we’ll deploy an NGINX web server, and make it accessible on port 8000.

Navigate to the UCP web UI, click the Resources tab, and choose Services.

Click the Create a Service button to deploy the NGINX service.

Fill-in the following fields:

Field Value
Service name nginx
Image name nginx
Internal port 80
Public port 8000

Once you’ve specified the service image and ports, click Deploy now to deploy the service into a node in the UCP cluster.

Once the service is up and running, you’ll be able to see the default NGINX page, by going to http://<node-ip>:8000.

Deploy from the CLI

You can also deploy the same service from the CLI. Once you’ve set up your UCP client bundle, run:

docker service create --name nginx \
  --publish 8000:80 \
  --label com.docker.ucp.access.owner=<your-username> \
docker, ucp, deploy, service
