How to install a uSkinned license on Umbraco Cloud

When you add a uSkinned license file to Umbraco Cloud you need to make sure it is added to your Source Control, otherwise, there is a risk that the file could be overwritten by a future update.

You must add the file locally first and then push it to your Umbraco Cloud environment.

Step 1

Go to the Umbraco Cloud portal.

Step 2

Click 'How to connect my machine'.
