OpenFaaS Cloud

OpenFaaS Cloud: multi-user serverless functions managed with git

Announcement from Cisco's DevNet Create in Mountain View


OpenFaaS Cloud introduces an automated build and management system for your Serverless functions with native integrations into your source-control management system whether that is GitHub or GitLab.

With OpenFaaS Cloud functions are managed through typing git push which reduces the tooling and learning curve required to operate functions for your team. As soon as OpenFaaS Cloud receives a push event from git it will run through a build-workflow which clones your repo, builds a Docker image, pushes it to a registry and then deploys your functions to your cluster. Each user can access and monitor their functions through their personal dashboard.


  • Portable - self-host or use the hosted Community Cluster (SaaS)
  • Multi-user - use your GitHub/GitLab identity to log into your personal dashboard
  • Automates CI/CD triggered by git push (also known as GitOps)
  • Onboard new git repos with a single click by adding the GitHub App or a repository tag in GitLab
  • Immediate feedback on your personal dashboard and through GitHub Checks or GitLab Statuses
  • Sub-domain per user or organization with HTTPS
  • Fast, non-root image builds using Docker's buildkit

  • OpenFaaS (0.9.10 or greater is recommended)
  • Docker Swarm or Kubernetes (other OpenFaaS providers may work in the future)

Blog post

Read my introducing OpenFaaS Cloud blog post for an overview of the idea with examples, screenshots and background on the project.

Conceptual architecture diagram

This conceptual diagram shows how OpenFaaS Cloud integrates with GitHub/GitLab through the use of an event-driven architecture.

Main flows:

  1. User pushes code - GitHub/GitLab push event is sent to github-event/gitlab-event function triggering a CI/CD workflow
  2. User removes GitHub/GitLab app from one or more repos - garbage collection is invoked removing 1-many functions
  3. User accesses function via router using "pretty URL" format and request is routed to function via API Gateway
