JAAS live or?

I have my own LXD based charms and things … and ready to start using them on AWS… but I recalled that JAAS was a thing a year or so ago… but when I go there now it just shows a spin wheel… is this service up or on hold? I wanted to avoid paying the cost for the controller if possible on EC2… or is JAAS now a paid service or something ?


I was looking for instructions and found this

We could definitely do with some onboarding when a user doesn’t have any models…

Basically what’s happening here is that it’s spinning checking for models for you but since you don’t have any, none ever show up :slight_smile:

You can go to the CLI to create a model on JAAS, there is currently no cost associated for using the JAAS controllers. There still will be costs from your cloud provider for things like machines and whatnot.

In addition, that documentation that you found is woefully out of date, I’ll be sure to have that updated. The old GUI which provided a system for creating models in the UI no longer exists and was replaced with the new Dashboard.

You can register the JAAS controller via the CLI using:
juju register jimm.jujucharms.com

hey @hatch just wanted to say thank you for the response and indeed I got in via your juju register ... instruction. Setup a credential with EC2Admin access and whipped up a model and bundle (WITH some private charms i had not yet uploaded to the store I might add… WOW!)

I now need to go off an research the security setup… like if I want to pre-bake my VPC… what should I turn on or off so Juju is happy? but this worked out perfect now!

Happy to help!

Unfortunately I’m not able to offer any assistance in externally controlling a VPC as you mentioned, you may want to create a separate topic targeted towards that question.

juju deploy mongodb --bind <the_space_you_want>
