Branching workflows for editors.

Projects allow you to group multiple sites from the same repository together. You can set a master branch, which editors use to branch off their own sites, and merge them back in at a later date.

Adding a new Project

To create a project:

  1. Have at least one site created on your Organization
  2. Go to the Projects section
  3. Click the Create Project button
  4. Enter a name for your Project

Branching enables you and your team to create isolated versions of a site to make changes on. Changes made on a branched site do not affect the main site until explicitly published.

Branched sites are preconfigured with the same settings as the main site when created and have a publishing workflow set up to use when changes are ready to go live. By default, branched sites are deleted automatically after being published.


Creating a branched site in CloudCannon also creates a branch on your connected Git repository.

Adding a new Branched Site

To create a branched site:

  1. Go to the Projects / Sites section
  2. Click the Create Site button
  3. Enter a name for your Site

Once created and initialized, the branched site is edited and published in the same way as any other site.
