    I am trying to deploy a grails application to cloudbees …but I am getting the following error.

    2013-05-08 10:09:04,790] Artifact gcloud: Server is not connected. Deploy is not available.
    [2013-05-08 10:09:08,189] Artifact gcloud: Artifact is being deployed, please wait…
    Connected to server
    [2013-05-08 10:09:09,091] Artifact gcloud: Error during artifact deployment. See server log for details.

    I followed the tutorial mentioned here …http://confluence.jetbrains.com/display/IntelliJIDEA/CloudBees to setup the cloudbees-intellij integration.

    Can you please help.

    I have followed the tutorial at the link above ( http://confluence.jetbrains.com/display/IntelliJIDEA/CloudBees ) but my ‘Hello World’ app is built in Groovy/GRAILS 2.2.2 framework. I am unable to duplicate the steps in the tutorial successfully, especially as regards the WAR file, and its location in the project structure.

    I have ultimately been successful, but only after [1] downloading the CloudBees SDK and [2] emulating steps in this tutorial –> ( http://wiki.cloudbees.com/bin/export/RUN/Grails?format=pdf )… however I think this defeats the purpose/utility of having CloudBees support in IntelliJ.

    Are there any resources (I have not been able to find) for the specific case of deploying a GRAILS app to CloudBees PaaS? …. Michael

    @Michael Yes, CloudBees support is available so far only for WAR artifacts (which is not supported out-of-the-box for Grails applications). I hope we will fix this when the new Cloud API is implemented probably in 13v.
