IntelliJ IDEA 12 Adds Support for CloudBees

IntelliJ IDEA has released a new version (12) of their IDE (link) and now bundles CloudBees support in the Ultimate edition of the product.

I decided to give it a spin over the last day or so and am pleased to report that deploying web applications was a pleasure.

Developers can build web applications and add support for CloudBees through the "Application Server" settings window. Enter your account username, password and your CloudBees domain name - the "test connection" feature makes sure your setup is okay.





Configure your RUN@cloud configuration to use the just-added server. You can stream logs from CloudBees back to the console.



You can see the detailed steps here.

Since CloudBees supports Play 2 and other ClickStarts, I will spend some time trying to deploy other kinds of apps through IntelliJ to Cloud.

Bummer, did I just make my holiday plans?

  1. Where do I find the "CloudBees domain name" in my configuration?
    I have tried every combination, doesn't work.

  2. Hi Juergen,

    Happy New Year!

    The CloudBees domain name is also known as your *Account* name, ie the name of the Domain/Account that you provide during signup on CloudBees. It is used in the by-default URLs that are created for you.

    On DEV@cloud
    https://[account_name].ci.cloubees.com

    On RUN@cloud, for each app you deploy
    https://[app_name].[account_name].cloudbees.net
    Note that you can customize these app URLs when subscribing to non-free plans.
