Authentication with Jelastic Account Credentials

To get started with Jelastic, you need to connect the plugin with your account at a platform. For that, navigate to Window > Preferences > Jelastic Preferences.

In the opened tab, fill in the Login and Password fields with the corresponding values and either select the required Jelastic hosting Provider from the list of available ones (for Public Cloud) or type the Custom host manually (for Private Cloud).

That’s all the required configurations! Now, having the Jelastic Eclipse plugin installed, you can manage Jelastic environments and deploy new projects easily without switching between IDE and browser.
