Getting Started with Cube Cloud: Create a project

This guide walks you through setting up Cube Cloud and connecting your Cube project to your database.

Navigate to, and create a new Cube Cloud account.

Click the Create Deployment button. This is the first step in the deployment creation. Give it a name and select the cloud provider and region of your choice.

Next up, the second step in creating a Cube App from scratch in Cube Cloud is to click the + create button.

Enter your credentials to connect to your database. Check the connecting to databases guide for more details.

Want to use a sample database instead? We also have a sample database where you can try out Cube Cloud:

In the UI it'll look exactly like the image below.

If you run into issues here, make sure to allow the Cube Cloud IPs to access your database. This means you need to enable these IPs in your firewall. If you are using AWS, this would mean adding a security group with allowed IPs.

Step four in this case consists of generating a data schema. Start by selecting the database tables to generate the data schema from, then hit generate.

Cube Cloud will generate the data schema and spin up your Cube deployment. With this, you're done. You've created a Cube deployment, configured a database connection, and generated a data schema!

You're ready for the last step, running queries in the Playground.

Now you can navigate to Playground to try out your queries or connect your application to Cube Cloud API.
