If you’re looking to sign up and create a project on Codeship, this guide will walk you through the initial onboarding process.
To sign up, navigate to our signup page. You can sign up either via your Source Code Management (SCM) or email address. SCMs we currently support are: GitLab, Bitbucket, or GitHub.
Note that these oAuth login pages come directly from the SCM tools themselves and we do not have access to them or to the credentials you provide.
Note: When signing up using your email, we won’t know what your git username is, which means that your personal dashboard (aka your home page) won’t be populated with your builds. To get your builds to show up, head over to your Connected Services page and enter your git username(s) there.
Once you’ve signed up, unless you were invited by a team member to an existing organization, you will be asked to create your account / organization. Account names must be unique since, you will be able to access your account with a unique URL -
In case you are expecting to be invited to an already existing organization, you will find the email you signed up with - sometimes less obvious for oauth signup - on the organization creation page.
Right after account creation, you can either create your first project right away or begin setting up your teams and inviting your colleagues.
If you need to invite your team members to help you set your first projects up, this can be done on the Teams page.
We recommend inviting people to the Managers team if they will need to create or delete projects or manage additional team members. Read more about the team management and permissions.
Authenticate SCM: If you signed up for Codeship via GitLab, Bitbucket, or Github, your SCM is already authenticated! If you’ve signed up via email, you authenticate your SCM here:
Simply click on the SCM icon you would like to connect with and proceed to provide your login credentials in order to give Codeship access to your account (see step 1 for further information).
Choose your repository: Once you have authenticated with your SCM provider, you will need to specify the code repository for the project. Simply paste your Git clone URL into the provided area and click ‘Connect’. Note that a repository can only be connected to one project, and a project can only have one repository.
Basic is a good place to start if:
Pro is a good place to start if:
Once you’ve decided on the infrastructure you’d like to use, simply click ‘Select Infrastructure’ on the corresponding project.
There are no plans to integrate with other SCM tools like Subversion.
If you want to add a badge showing your last builds status to your ReadMe, you can find the code in the Notification settings of your project.
The raw URL for the image looks like the this:
The UUID for a specific project is available on the General tab in your project settings.
Git identifies people by your e-mail and Codeship uses your Gravatar settings for your profile picture. If you have not set up Gravatar yet and want to change the avatar shown on Codeship and in your commit messages, please head over to Gravatar.com and setup an avatar for both the email address you configured in your Codeship Account Settings as well as for any email addresses you use in your git configuration.
You can check the latter via running the following command in your local git checkout.
# global configuration git config --global --get user.email # project specific (local) configuration git config --get user.email
Note that different projects can have different email addresses configured and that your VCS can have other email addresses configured for the actions you take via their interfaces.
To make it easier to navigate through your Codeship projects, we’ve provided several keyboard shortcuts for quickly jumping through the interface:
gp, available from inside your projects, will return you to your projects overview page
