Operating System: Any

Applies To: Faculty or Staff using WebApps

Last Updated: September 1, 2022

We highly recommend that you store all of your application code within a git repository (see How to Create a New Code Repository).  However, persistent storage can be used if you have content (e.g. images, PDFs...) that needs to persist through pod rebuilds/restarts.


  1. Log into the WebApps Web console:
  2. Select your project.
  3. Select Deployments from the Applications menu on the left.
  4. Select the deployment to add storage to.
  5. Select Add Storage from the Actions menu on the top right of your screen.
  6. Click Create Storage (skip to step 7 if you do not see the Create Storage button).
  7. Enter a Name for your storage request.
  8. Select an Access Mode for your storage.
  9. Enter a size for the Capacity.
  10. Click Create.
  11. Enter a Mount path.
  12. Enter a Volume name (optional).
  13. Click Add.
