The source code of your project will reside in a git-based VCS repository. You can start with a plain project. However, we suggest starting with a new Composer create-project. You will learn more about the setup template in the Setup Template section.


This guide explains the repository setup using GitHub. You can also integrate Bitbucket or GitLab-based version control environments with Shopware PaaS. Refer to Source Integrations for more information.

Create a Shopware project

Firstly, create a new project with composer create-project shopware/production <folder-name> using the Symfony Flex template.

This will create a brand new Shopware 6 project in the given folder. Now, change it into the newly created project and require the PaaS configuration with composer req paas.

Secondly, create a new Git repository and push it to your favourite Git hosting service.

Updating the PaaS template recipe

You can update the recipe to the latest version using the composer recipes:update command.

However, the template may receive breaking changes. For example, when making certain changes to file mounts (like using a "service mount" instead of a "local mount"), there is no way to migrate your existing data into the updated mount automatically. Due to this, we always recommend manually checking all changes in the recipes:update command provided for the PaaS package, as some updates to the .platform-yaml files might need extra manual actions. Every PaaS recipe update should be deemed a breaking update and thus be validated before applying it to your project.

Add PaaS remote

Lastly, add a second remote, which allows us to push code towards the PaaS environment and trigger a deployment.

We first need the project ID, so we display all projects using

$ shopware projects

Your projects are:
| ID            | Title     | Region           | Organization |
| 7xasjkyld189e | paas-env  | <region-domain>  | shopware     |

Get a project by running: platform get [id]
List a projects environments by running: platform environments -p [id]

To add the project remote to your local repository, just run

shopware project:set-remote 7xasjkyld189e # Replace with your project ID


Now your repository is configured - you should have two remotes

$ git remote -v

origin<project-repository>.git (fetch)
origin<project-repository>.git (push)
shopware	<paas-url>.git (fetch)
shopware	<paas-url>.git (push)
originProject CodeThis remote contains all your project specific source code
shopwarePaaS EnvironmentChanges pushed to this remote will be synced with your PaaS environment

Migrating from the old template to the new template

If you have already used the Shopware PaaS old template, please follow the guide to migrate it to the new structure.

The following tasks have to be done additionally to the flex migration:

  • The root has been moved to .platform/applications.yaml
  • The following services has been renamed:
    • queuerabbit to rabbitmq
    • searchelastic to opensearch

As the services are renamed, a completely new service will be created. Here are three possible options available:
