Accessing the Studio

Learn about how to access the Studio and its features.

Get access to the Studio

When your commercetools Frontend project is set up, we create one Studio user with the Admin role and we send them a registration email. After completing the registration process, the Admin user can log in to the Studio.

From the Studio, the Admin user can add team members and provide them with specific permissions by assigning a role. To learn more about user roles, see Managing your team.

When the Admin user adds users to the Studio, they will receive a registration email. After completing the registration process, users can log in to the Studio.

The registration email is sent from no-reply@frontastic.cloud. The email contains a registration link which is valid for 72 hours.

Log in to the Studio

To log in to the Studio, follow these steps:

  1. In your browser, enter the URL of your Studio. The URL has the following structure https://CUSTOMER_ID.frontastic.io (for example, https://awesomeshop.frontastic.io).

  2. In the Email and Password fields, enter the credentials you created during the registration process.

  3. Click Log in.
