URL parameter for the workspace storage

If the URL for starting a new workspace does not contain a URL parameter specifying the storage type, the new workspace is created in ephemeral or persistent storage, whichever is defined as the default storage type in the CheCluster Custom Resource.

The URL parameter for specifying a storage type for a workspace is storageType=<storage_type>:

https://<che_fqdn>#<git_repository_url>?storageType=<storage_type> (1)
1 Possible <storage_type> values:
  • ephemeral

  • per-user (persistent)

  • per-workspace (persistent)

With the ephemeral or per-workspace storage type, you can run multiple workspaces concurrently, which is not possible with the default per-user storage type.
