Setup Cloud Resources via Cloud Manager

Lean how to use Cloud Manager to set up and manage your own cloud resources.

Objective

This document helps you understand how your cloud resources are created and who can create them. After reading this section you should understand:

  • A System Administrator assigned to the Business Owner role must be the first in your organization to login and access Cloud Manager.
  • How your cloud program and environments are created.

Introduction

Adding your cloud resources is done via Cloud Manager by your team member assigned to the Business Owner product profile. This individual is typically one who understand the business needs and who completes the initial Cloud Manager setup.

Follow the sections below to learn how to create your cloud service programs and environments.

Prerequisites

Access Cloud Manager as System Administrator and Business Owner

Before the team members that you assigned to the Business Owner role can access cloud manager and begin creating cloud resources, the System Administrator must be assigned the Business Owner role and sign into Cloud Manager.

  1. Ensure that you, as System Administrator, have the Business Owner role assigned.

  2. Sign into Cloud Manager at my.cloudmanager.adobe.com and be presented with the normal landing page.

By successfully signing in as System Administrator with the Business Owner role, you initialize Cloud Manager for use by the other users with the Business Owner role. You will not receive a confirmation of this or any message. Simply signing in suffices.

Until you sign in to Cloud Manager as System Administrator with the Business Owner role, other users with the Business Owner role will not be able to create programs in Cloud Manager even if they are assigned the correct roles.

The user with the Business Owner role will receive a welcome email with a link to get started. Follow the steps below to navigate to Cloud Manager using this welcome email.

  1. From your welcome email click on Get started, as shown in the figure below.
