Set up cloud.gov and log in

If you have access to cloud.gov, here’s how to log in.

Log into the dashboard (web interface)

The dashboard gives you web-based access to common tasks: https://dashboard.fr.cloud.gov/

Set up the command line

cloud.gov is based on the Cloud Foundry open source project, so cloud.gov uses the Cloud Foundry command line interface (CLI) to give you full access.

  1. Install the Cloud Foundry CLI: Windows, Mac OS X, or Linux. If you can’t use the installer, you can download the CLI binary and install it manually.
  2. Log in:
  3. Enter cf login -a api.fr.cloud.gov --sso
  4. It’ll say One Time Code ( Get one at https://login.fr.cloud.gov/passcode ) – visit this login link in your browser.
    1. If you use a cloud.gov account, you may need to log in using your email address, password, and multi-factor authentication token. (EPA, FDIC, GSA, and NSF: use your agency button.)
  5. The page will display your 10-character Temporary Authentication Code. If you aren’t already logged in, you’ll have to do so.
  6. Copy and paste that 10-character code into the command line (no typing indicators will show), and enter it.

Now try your first deploy of a test application.
