CodeStream Introduces Simpler On-Premises Deployment; adds Okta authentication

June 15, 2020

CodeStream's code review and discussion tools are already deployed on-premises in many organizations around the world. Over the past several months we have collected our learnings and simplified the deployment process significantly. Some of the steps we have taken are:

  • A new Quickstart that gets you up and running with one command
  • Docker containers are now publicly accessible
  • You can deploy without outbound email
  • You don’t have to set up any integrations as part of the initial deployment
  • No SSL certificate creation needed to get started

If you have customized requirements or configurations, we are here to help you get started.  Just contact for:

  • High availability or redundancy requirements
  • Restrictive network configurations
  • Special network security restrictions 

We will continue to simplify and enhance our on-premises offering with the following approach:

  • If you have tried us in the cloud, we can help you migrate to on-premises
  • We will continue to limit the number of exposed moving parts. That enables us to provide updates that are as simple as deploying new Docker containers.
  • We will continue to move everything we can inside the database as we push forward, further simplifying updates. 
  • We have developed and will continue to enhance support tools for on-premises installations.  
  • We have created a comprehensive set of documentation to support our on-premises customers. Visit for details.

Okta authentication

We worked with Okta to allow you to authenticate using their service, in addition to our email/password and GitHub authentication. Okta is the market leader in the identity space, and we are collaborating on making CodeStream highly secure while managing access across the enterprise. With Okta, users don’t have to remember yet another password, and since Okta is only used by the enterprise to authenticate, it’s inherently more secure than the more public alternatives.

Okta authentication currently only works for CodeStream's on-premises installations. Okta authentication for our cloud version is coming soon.
