Creating a workspace from a template devfile

You can create a new workspace by using one of the devfile templates included in Che.

For information about devfiles, see Authoring a devfile 2.

  1. Go to the Dashboard of Che.

  2. In the left navigation panel, click Create Workspace.

  3. Go to the Custom Workspace tab.

  4. Enter a workspace name.

    If you do not enter a Workspace Name for your workspace, Che generates a unique name for a new workspace from the devfile’s metadata.generateName property followed by four random characters.

  5. Select a devfile template from the drop-down list.

  6. Click Create & Open.

  7. Wait for the initialized workspace to start and for the IDE to open.
