Defining MTA Deployment Descriptors for Cloud Foundry
The Multitarget Application (MTA) deployment descriptor is a YAML file that defines the
relations between you as a provider of а deployable artefact and the SAP Cloud Platform as a deployer tool.
Using the YAML data serialization language you describe the MTA in an MTA deployment
descriptor (mtad.yaml) file containing the following elements:
Global elements - an identifier and version that uniquely identify the MTA, including
additional optional information such as a description, the providing organization, and a
copyright notice for the author.
Modules - they contain the properties of module types, which represent Cloud
applications or content that form the MTA and are deployed. For more information, see Modules.
Resources - they contain properties of resource types, which are entities not part of an
MTA, but required by the modules at runtime or at deployment time. For more information, see
Dependencies between modules and resources.
Properties - these result in the application environment variables that have to be
available to the respective module at run time. For more information, see Properties.
Technical configuration parameters, such as URLs, and application configuration parameters
such as environment variables For more information, see Parameters and Placeholders.
