Push-button publishing to RStudio Connect


Click 'Publish' to send your work to RStudio Connect from RStudio Desktop, RStudio Server, or RStudio Workbench (previously RStudio Server Pro). RStudio Connect supports just about any static or dynamic content your team can create in R.

Publishing your documents and applications from the RStudio IDE to RStudio Connect is extremely easy.  Once you are happy with your work and ready to publish, simply click the 'Publish' button in the Code pane or the rendered document, and follow the steps in the deployment wizard.

For example, to publish an R Markdown document to RStudio Connect, you would:

1.  Click the Publish button in the rendered document,


or in the Code pane of the IDE


2.  Select RStudio Connect as the destination


3.  Decide whether or not to publish the document's source code


4.  Select a target account


5.  Publish!

The Deploy pane in the RStudio IDE will provide details about the deployment process, and once deployed, the document will become available in RStudio Connect.  From there, you can choose who can see it, who can change it, who will run it on the server, whether it should be scheduled to run automatically, and access the logs associated with the document.

The process for deploying applications is nearly identical, though the options are slightly different based on the nature of the code.  Once deployed, you can set up access restrictions, tune performance, and view logs from within the RStudio Connect dashboard.
