Getting started with Liferay Cloud involves ensuring all accounts, environments, and services have been successfully provisioned and deployed in your instance. Begin with the following steps:
- Check Setup Emails
- Access the Liferay Cloud Console
- Access the Provisioned Project Source Code
- Log into Your CI and Liferay Services
- Verify Setup
Check the email account associated with your Liferay Cloud subscription for setup emails. You should receive a Liferay Cloud onboarding email along with email invitations for each purchased Liferay Cloud environment.
The onboarding email provides necessary credentials for accessing Jenkins and Liferay DXP on non-production environments, as well as important steps for getting started with Liferay Cloud.
Each environment invitation grants access to a single purchased Liferay Cloud environment. Be sure to accept all environment invitations.
After logging in, the Liferay Cloud Console home page appears.
From here, you can access and manage environments and deployments, as well as invite other team members.
New Liferay Cloud projects are provisioned a temporary GitHub repository hosted in the
dxpcloud organization. This repository contains the template for a Liferay Cloud development project.
To access to your new project repository, follow the instructions in the Liferay Cloud onboarding email and accept the subsequent GitHub invitation.
After accepting the invitation, locate your provisioned project repository:
Log into GitHub.
dxpcloudin the Your teams search box.
Once you have found your provisioned repository, you must:
Transfer the provisioned repository’s content to a private Git repository.
Integrate the private repository with the Jenkins (CI) service in Liferay Cloud using a Webhook.
See Configuring Your GitHub Repository for detailed instructions.
Log into the Jenkins (CI) web interface, then log into your Liferay DXP instance’s non-production environments (e.g., dev and uat) so you can access them.
Login credentials are provided in the initial onboarding email, and listed as secrets in your infra environment.
See Logging into Your Liferay Cloud Services for detailed instructions.
Before beginning deployment in Liferay Cloud, verify that the correct environments and services have been successfully provisioned and deployed.
