Possible values for the type element in the LocationCollectionElement object:

  • CLUSTER
  • PRIVATE
  • PUBLIC

How Cluster type is different than Private?

Also:

Possible values for the status element in the LocationCollectionElement object:

  • DISABLED
  • ENABLED
  • HIDDEN



What purpose Hidden has?

Thanks.

Hi Irakli,

you're correct that 'CLUSTER' is indeed a type of private location but it is good to differentiate between them as a 'PRIVATE' location is only available to 1 environment whereas a 'CLUSTER' location is available to multiple environments within a managed cluster.
'HIDDEN' is used for locations that are available for some tenants but not others. So we mark them as 'HIDDEN' in the accounts that they are not available for. I don't believe that we have any of these at the moment though.

Best wishes, Hannah

Thanks, Hannah,

So if I want to create a private synthetic test location that is available for all environments in the cluster I should set it up as Cluster, and set up the corresponding Cluster ActiveGate, correct?


Yes, you need to follow the Cluster ActiveGate instructions here.
