Deploys a container with information specified in the Project Container Configuration. When a container is deployed via this operation, any existing container of the same name will be removed and replaced with the newly deployed container. If the deploy should fail for any reason, the old container is restored to the previous state.

Container Status

If the Docker REST API is enabled on your docker installation, you can configure FlexDeploy to have access to start/stop the container as well as view logs.
