Authentication

Authentication On Clever Cloud

The API of Clever Cloud uses OAuth 1 to perform authentication actions. There are two ways to signup to Clever Cloud: email or GitHub login.

Email Authentication

This kind of auth requires a valid and non-temporary disposable e-mail, and a password having at least 6 characters.

Github Authentication

The GitHub signup allows you to create an account or link your existing one to GitHub, in one click. This process asks the following permsissions:

  • Read your Public Key
  • Read User Repositories

The "repository permission" is used to deploy your GitHub apps directly to Clever Cloud, with a simple step.

If you need to give access to Clever Cloud's API to a specific Github organization, you can do it here.

Two Factor Authentication (2FA)

Clever Cloud supports 2FA. You can enable it here: https://console.clever-cloud.com/users/me/authentication

Please, backup your recovery codes, we won't be able to restore access to your account if you lose access to your regular codes.
