Create a new Magento project

This section discusses how to get started with a Magento cloud deployment by cloning an existing sample project. You can customize your project to your needs anytime, including before you deploy it.

Use this procedure whether you’re starting a new project from scratch or if you’re importing an existing Magento installation to Enterprise Cloud Edition.

When you initially set up a project from a template, we retrieve the code from the magento-cloud-configuration repository.

Before you continue, make sure you completed the tasks discussed in Set up a Magento workspace.

To access your project for the first time:

  1. Log in to your Magento Commerce (Cloud) account.
  2. Click the Projects tab as the following figure shows.
