Managing your content in RStudio Connect

Follow

Give your R users control of the work they share. With RStudio Connect, they can see what they’ve published, decide who should be able to view and collaborate on it, tune performance, schedule updates, view logs of their R processes, and more.


After you have deployed your content to RStudio Connect from RStudio Desktop, RStudio Server, or RStudio Server Pro, you can publish it from RStudio Connect and decide who can see or change it.  You can schedule documents, tune application performance, and view logs, as well.  Here's how it works.

Applications and documents deployed to RStudio Connect can be managed using the Settings menu in the dashboard.  To access it, select a document or application in the navigation area on the left side of the dashboard, then click the gear icon in the top right:

The Performance area gives you options for tuning the R processes, connections, and load factor in use by the application:

The Output area appears for consistency, but as the description mentions, it cannot be used for Shiny applications:
