Set up an account and project

Previous step:

Prepare for local environment setup

To begin working with a project and develop your store, you should have received an e-mail invitation to create a Mangento Enterprise Cloud Edition account. The account provides access to your project for Magento development and deployment across all supported environments.

You should receive an e-mail invitation to verify and access the account. If you don’t see the invitation, check your junk e-mail folder. Click the Verify my account option in the email to verify and access your account.

When logged in, you should see a project named and ready to access.

If the project name is [UntitledProject], a Super User admin or the account owner needs to create the project. Only one of these users can create the project. For instructions, the project administrator or account owner should see Create the Project

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.

We recommend always starting with the blank site from a template as your initial project option. Completely deploy this code across your entire environment from Integration to Staging to Production for a clear experience with deployment in Magento Commerce (Cloud). If you have an existing Magento deployment, import code, extensions, themes, and data after fully deploying this base Magento code.

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.

    Click the projects tab to access your Cloud project

  3. Click the name of your project (initially, it’s named [Untitled Project]).
  4. When prompted, enter a name for your project and click Next.

    Enter a name for your project

  5. Click Create a blank site from a template as the following figure shows.

    Import a sample Magento project

  6. Click Continue.
  7. When prompted, enter your Magento Commerce authentication keys in the provided fields and click Finish.
  8. Wait a few minutes while the project deploys.

    During this time, the Web Interface displays messages similar to the following:

    Your sample Magento project

  9. After the project deploys, Success displays next to the name of your project.

    The following figure shows an example.
