View deployment

The process of instantiating a View instance in Ambari, which makes that View available to Ambari Admins for creating instances.

View version

The uniquely named version of a View. Multiple versions of a View (uniquely identified by View name) can be deployed to Ambari.

View instance

The instantiation of a specific View version. Instances are created and configured by Ambari Admins and must have a unique View instance name.
