    I recently created a new project using collaborate - but when I try to create a cloud build target, it asks me to select a source management system and gives me the options of github, bitbucket and gitlab. How do I use collaborate and cloud build together?

    The documentation for setting it up in-unity doesn't work either, as at one point it now just redirects to the web page...

    Im using unity 2020.1 and Collaborate Preview.17-2.0.0.

    Or maybe my team should take this new project as a good opportunity to move away from collaborate and start using git...

    Hi @AdamBourke, did you enable Collaborate from the Collaborate Toolbar before trying to enable Cloud Build? If Collaborate is detected by Cloud Build then it will fast forward through its setup process and assume that you'd like to use Collaborate for your source management system and move on to picking which target platform you'd like to setup first.

    I discovered the problem, there were two things:

    1) Collaborate was not enabled in the cloud dashboard. It was first enabled from inside unity, and it was working fine. But because we hadn't pressed the "Enable" in the cloud dashboard, it didn't work. Looks like a bug, but a minor one with an easy workaround (press the button).

    2) Collaborate doesn't appear in the Source Managers list. If you switch to manual version control setup (AND have completed step 1), then it gives you the collaborate setup view.

    Now, if only 2020.x was supported by cloud build...

    Thanks for the response @ryanc-unity ! This was my problem (I posted my own response about the same time you did), but I don't understand why it is necessary, if collaborate is enabled from unity to do it again in the dashboard... Anyway, my problem is solved, thanks :)
