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.
- 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.
- Log in:
cf login -a api.fr.cloud.gov --sso
- It’ll say
One Time Code ( Get one at
)– visit this login link in your browser.
- 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.)
- The page will display your 10-character Temporary Authentication Code. If you aren’t already logged in, you’ll have to do so.
- Copy and paste that 10-character code into the command line (no typing indicators will show), and enter it.
