Umbraco CI/CD Flow: Bridging Your CI/CD Pipeline with the Cloud

Umbraco CI/CD Flow represents a significant enhancement in how developers can integrate, test, and deploy their projects on Umbraco Cloud. The feature is engineered to function as an extension to your existing CI/CD pipeline, allowing automated deployments directly to Umbraco Cloud. This creates a synergy between your existing robust CI/CD setup and Umbraco Cloud's specialized hosting capabilities that are optimized for Umbraco CMS.

If you already have a CI/CD pipeline, you're halfway there. Umbraco CI/CD Flow brings an added layer of sophistication by allowing seamless integration with Umbraco Cloud through the "Umbraco Public API."

The basic flow is depicted in the sequence diagram below.

Whether you're a CI/CD novice or a seasoned developer, we offer tailored guidance for a frictionless deployment experience. If you're starting from scratch, our thorough documentation outlines how to establish a CI/CD pipeline with popular platforms like Azure DevOps or GitHub Actions. For those with an existing setup, integrate effortlessly with Umbraco Cloud's specialized hosting features.

Our documentation serves as a roadmap, detailing various routes tailored to your needs. Learn how to invoke the Umbraco Cloud API from within your CI/CD pipeline, explore the specific endpoint details, or discover how to call this endpoint from an already established pipeline. Each path culminates in a seamless, automated deployment experience, empowering you to deploy with confidence.
