Project Settings

    When working with an Umbraco Cloud project, you can handle a lot of the project configuration directly in the Umbraco Cloud Portal. You can manage team members, database connections, hostnames/domains, security settings, SSL certificates, deployment webhooks, upgrade plan, project usage, advanced settings, rename, or delete the project.



    You can view the Overview of your Umbraco Cloud project from the Settings menu.

    Project Overview

    Edit team

    Manage the team members on your project. You can also view the backoffice user groups for each team member, add a Technical contact, or add an Account contacts for your project.

    Connection details

    Find connection details to your Umbraco Cloud databases. You need to allow your IP to connect to the databases with your local machine.


    Binding hostnames to your Umbraco Cloud project is done from the Hostnames section in the Settings menu on the Umbraco Cloud Portal.


    Manage transport security settings for your project. You can configure certain transport security options for all hostnames or specific hostnames within your project.

    Certificates (Only available on Professional or Enterprise plan)

    Used to upload and bind your own custom security certificate to your hostnames instead of using the TLS (HTTPS) certificates provided by the Umbraco Cloud service.


    On Umbraco Cloud projects, it is possible to configure a deployment webhook on your environments. This will be triggered upon successful deployments, you can configure where you would like information about the deployment to be posted.

    Upgrade Plan

    You can upgrade your project to a Standard or a Professional plan, from the Settings menu, depending on your needs. The option is not available if you are already on the specific plan or if you are running in Trial mode.

    Rename project

    Renaming the Cloud Project

    You can rename your Umbraco Cloud project from the Settings menu. settings

    If you are working locally, you need to update the origin of your local git repository to point to the new clone URL. Alternatively, you can make a fresh local clone of the project, once you’ve changed your project name.

    Renaming the Project file and folder

    To rename your Umbraco Cloud project files and folder, do the following:

    1. Navigate to the .umbraco file at the root of the project and view the following:

      base = "src/UmbracoProject"
      csproj = "UmbracoProject.csproj"

      The base property provides the folder location which contains the application and the csproj property is the name of the .csproj file.

    2. Rename the UmbracoProject directory and .csproj file.

    3. Update the .umbraco file with the new name and any C# code namespaces reflecting the name of your project.

    4. Additionally, if you prefer to organize your code, you can add additional Class Library projects that are referenced by the Umbraco application .csproj file.

      For example: Rename UmbracoProject.csproj to MyAwesomeProject.Web.csproj and have one or more additional class library projects such as MyAwesomeProject.Code.csproj

      base = "src/MyAwesomeProject/MyAwesomeProject.Web"
      csproj = "MyAwesomeProject.Web.csproj"

    It's a good idea to update the namespace used in the Program.cs, Startup.cs and _ViewImports.cshtml files so the naming is consistent throughout your project structure. Once updated, you will need to clear out the bin and obj folders locally to avoid build errors. When you are done, commit the changes and push them to Cloud.


    Manage Advanced settings for your project from the Settings menu:

    • Enable static outbound IP addresses for projects on a Standard, Professional, or Enterprise plan.

    • Enable IIS logging for each of your environments. The log files can be accessed through kudu in C:\home\LogFiles\http. There is a rolling size limit on the log files of 100 MB. Once the limit is reached, the oldest log files will be overwritten by new ones.

      When enabling IIS logging, the site will have to restart. For more information about IIS logging, look at the Official Microsoft Documentation.
