Authentication & account linking

Strapi Cloud currently allows a user to sign in using either GitHub, GitLab or Google Auth. Once signed in, the user will need to link their Strapi Cloud account with a valid GitHub account, as Strapi Cloud only supports deployment via GitHub.

Linking an account is straightforward and only requires a few steps:

  1. Head to and sign in via your preferred auth method.
  2. Click "Create Project" and select a plan. New users will have the option to start a Free Trial.
  3. In the "Import Git Repository" section, connect the GitHub account and/or organizations that own the repository or repositories you want to deploy. This can be different from the account that owns the Strapi Cloud account.
  4.  If you have already given Strapi Cloud access to all repositories of your GitHub account, go directly to the next step. If not, you will be redirected to a GitHub modal where you will have to allow Strapi Cloud permission to access your repositories (more information in the GitHub documentation).
  5. Back in the project creation interface, select your Account and a Repository.
  6. Set up your Strapi Cloud project.
