Continuous deployment

Continuous deployment

This guide covers features and tools you can use to deploy your Cube project to Cube Cloud.

Deploy with Git

Continuous deployment works by connecting a Git repository to a Cube Cloud deployment and keeping the two in sync.

First, go to the Build & Deploy tab on the Settings screen to make sure your deployment is configured to deploy with Git. Then click Generate Git credentials to obtain Git credentials:

The instructions to set up Cube Cloud as a Git remote are also available on the same screen:

git config credential.helper store
git remote add cubecloud <YOUR-CUBE-CLOUD-GIT-URL>
git push cubecloud master

Deploy with GitHub

First, ensure your deployment is configured to deploy with Git. Then connect your GitHub repository to your deployment by clicking the Connect to GitHub button, and selecting your repository.

Cube Cloud will automatically deploy from the specified production branch (master by default).

Deploy with CLI

Enabling this option will cause the Data Model page to display the last known state of a Git-based codebase (if available), instead of reflecting the latest modifications made. It is important to note that the logic will still be updated in both the API and the Playground.

You can use the CLI to set up continuous deployment for a Git repository. You can also use it to manually deploy changes without continuous deployment.

Manual Deploys

You can deploy your Cube project manually. This method uploads data models and configuration files directly from your local project directory.

You can obtain a Cube Cloud deploy token from your deployment's Settings screen.

npx cubejs-cli deploy --token TOKEN

Continuous Deployment

You can use Cube CLI with your continuous integration tool.

You can use the CUBE_CLOUD_DEPLOY_AUTH environment variable to pass the Cube Cloud deploy token to Cube CLI.

Below is an example configuration for GitHub Actions:

name: My Cube App
      - "**"
      - "master"
    name: Deploy My Cube App
    runs-on: ubuntu-latest
    timeout-minutes: 30
      - name: Checkout
        uses: actions/checkout@v2
      - name: Use Node.js 14.x
        uses: actions/setup-node@v1
          node-version: 14.x
      - name: Deploy to Cube Cloud
        run: npx cubejs-cli deploy --token ${{ secrets.CUBE_CLOUD_DEPLOY_AUTH }}
