Development

See Development section to get started on setting up your project for SilverStripe Platform.

Managing users on your stack

See User management section on how to add users and how the different roles work.

Access to source code

The platform requires source code to be stored in a git repository; there are two options:

Hosted at code.platform.silverstripe.com

The platform can provide a project at code.platform.silverstripe.com where you can manage your users and project code.

Self managed

If your team manages your git repository, the dashboard will need to be able to access it and use a deploy key for password-less cloning. The deploy key can be accessed from your stack overview page on platform.silverstripe.com and is unique to that stack.

Here are a couple of links on how to set up a deploy key on some common git hosting services:

A stack manager can change the git repository URL on the stack overview page by clicking the “Edit stack” button.

Platform features and configuration

Some configuration such as PHP version can be changed. See the .platform.yml file docs for more information.

See the Platform features section for more information on deployments, configuring whitelists, domains, and more.

VPN

If you require a VPN for intranet or secure connection to your on-premise network, we recommend that you contact us before ordering a stack since there are limitations on how this can be deployed.
