There are several ways to import a project:

  • IDE > Import Project
  • Dashboard > Create Project
  • Import via Git
  • Import from a ZIP file
  • Copy a project to Codenvy’s projects folder on the local file system
  • Open a terminal in the IDE and create folders in the /projects directory

Private repositories require SSH keys that need to be generated and uploaded to a code hosting server. It is done automatically for GitHub at Profile > Preferences > SSH. Click the GitHub icon and follow instructions.

Project Configuration

Che will auto-detect and configure Maven projects, while other project types need to be configured at Project > Configuration.
