Deploying the default external storage implementation to Heroku

You can create an external store in any database/location of your choice. If you want to use Heroku, we have a one-click installation for you.

  1. Click here. This will ask you to create a Heroku account or log in to your existing account.
  2. Once you are logged in to Heroku, this is the screen you will see:
  3. Enter a name for the app in the App name field. Say, externalstore.
  4. Click Deploy App. You will need to wait a few seconds as the app is deployed. Once the app is deployed, you will get the success message: Your app was successfully deployed.
  5. You can click Manage App > Settings to view the settings for your app. You will need the app URL, for example.
