On-Boarding a Model Using the Portal UI

A high-level summary of the on-boarding steps and overview of the workflow is shown below:


Prerequisites : You have to create a model bundle in your own environment before start to on-board. Acumos cannot transform your model in a microservice with only the model itself, it needs some other relevant information contained in the model bundle. The model bundle consists of component.json defining the component and its metadata, component.bin the binary payload and component.proto with the protobuf specs. You can retrieve all the information to create your model bundle in the “ON-BOARDING BY WEB” home page


Once your model bundle has been created, follow these steps:

  1. Select the “ON-BOARDING MODEL” tab in the outer left menu

  2. Select “ON-BOARDING BY WEB”

  3. Drag & Drop your model bundle or use the Browse button to select it

  4. Click Upload

  5. When uploading is finished, click on On-Board Model.


This will initiate a series of back-end process steps, illuminated as they run, by the cascade from left to right of the icons on the top of the page. These include creating the microservice that will run in a docker container, creating a TOSCA file for your model so it can be used in the Design Studio, and storing the artifacts and model.


On-boarding is finished when all steps turn green. Click the View Model button to see your model in the MY UNPUBLISHED MODELS section of the My Models page.

If one of the steps appears in red, on-boarding has failed. Check your notifications to determine why on-boarding failed - there should be a message with a link to download on-boarding log files. If you need help debugging, please reach out to the Acumos Community or Dev Discuss mailing lists or post on StackOverflow.
