Getting Started with Cube Cloud: Import Git repository via SSH

This guide walks you through creating a new deployment on Cube Cloud from a Git repository via SSH.

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 Import Git repository via SSH button.

Cube Cloud Upload Project Screen

Enter the SSH URL of your Git repository, and click Generate SSH key:

Getting SSH key from Cube Cloud

Copy the SSH key and add it to your hosted Git repository. Back in Cube Cloud, click Connect. After a connection is successfully established, you should see the next screen:

Getting webhook URL from Cube Cloud

Copy the Cube Cloud Git Webhook URL and add it your hosted Git repository's webhooks. Ensure that the Git repository can push events which should trigger a build on Cube Cloud. Back in Cube Cloud, click Connect to test the webhook.

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 five 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 Setup Database Screen

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 the Cube Cloud API.
