Released: Juju GUI 2.0

We are really happy to announce availability of the new and shiny version of Juju GUI 2.0 with completely redesigned and rewritten user interface and improved user experience.


The new GUI introduces:

  • redesigned canvas, relation management and charm handling with the new inspector
  • improved integration with the charm store, unifying the web experience at
  • new machine view with drag’n’drop functionality – allocating units has never been easier!
  • creation and switching between models within a controller
  • new bundle deploys

Not much has stayed the same , so it’s best if you give the new GUI a try yourself.





The major changes for this release

GUI with controllers and models (Juju 1.25)

If you would like to test the GUI against a Juju controller, the JES feature flag needs to be enabled before bootstrapping. This will enable you to create, list and manage models directly from the GUI.

juju bootstrap

Deploying the Juju GUI 2.0

Juju 1.25 or older

The charm is available via the charmstore URL cs:juju-gui and at on the web. Just do the usual:

juju deploy cs:juju-gui

We hope you find the new GUI easier to use and the layout more intuitive. Enjoy using it and let us know what you think!
