Deployment

Deploying An Application

Note: all Fuse accounts receive one test phone number by default when they are setup.

Managing Deployments

It is common to have multiple deployments for the same application. Typically one deployment is for a specific production revision that is deployed to your production phone number. Staging a new revision for QA testing often warrants its own deployment. Finally, a deployment for active development enables users to test the latest application revisions.

Testing

For initial application development, Plum recommends saving a test deployment to the 'latest' revision. This ensures that the most recent version of the application always runs when testers call the test phone numbers. There is no need to edit the deployment settings after each application revision if 'latest' is selected in the deployment form.

After deploying your application, try calling the phone number associated with it. Users should hear a prompt that says β€œHello, World!” and then disconnects.

See the Deployments section for more detailed information.

Logs

Click on the Logs link at the top of the page to access all available logs for a user's application(s). Fuse automatically generates two different documents for calls to or from an application: detailed logs and call detail records. By default, Fuse retains these documents for 5 days and 1 year, respectively.

Use the detailed logs to discover the precise events that occurred on an individual call. These include end-user input, prompts, branching logic, and debugging webservice integrations.

There should be a log file for the recent test call made to the basic application. Click on the item in the list on the 'Logs' page. This brings up a short log detailing when the call took place. Whenever a caller encounters a prompt in their call the log displays the text of that prompt along with a link to listen to the audio file the caller heard.

Detailed logs and call detail records are helpful when building complex applications because they allow users to easily trace the call-flow and to debug webservice integrations. Fuse lets users download individual call logs and export call detail records for a specific time frame.

Consult the Logs section for more details.
