Multi-context

Note: This feature is only available on the Enterprise Edition of AxonServer

You can use a single AxonServer (cluster) to store events for multiple bounded contexts. Each context will have its own set of files (stored in a separate directory). Each context may have a different master in an AxonServer cluster.

Creating a new context is done using the user interface, or via the command line interface:

$ java -jar ./axonserver-cli.jar create-context -S http://[node]:[port] -c [context-name] -n [members]

The server address here is the address of the leader for the _admin context. It is not possible to delete the _admin context. Members is a comma separated list of node names that should be members of the new context.

The context name must match the following regular expression "[a-zA-Z][a-zA-Z_-0-9]*", so it should start with a letter (uppercase or lowercase), followed by a combination of letters, digits, hyphens and underscores.
