Onboarding to Commerce

After Adobe activates a Commerce on cloud infrastructure subscription, the initial project and code access is available only to the person designated as the License Owner (Account Owner).

The License Owner is the person in your business or finance organization that manages payments and other business-related transactions for the Adobe Commerce on cloud infrastructure account. This person serves as the point of contact with Adobe. If you must change the License Owner on your account, you must contact your Adobe Account Team.

To quickly onboard your project, so you can begin developing your site for live deployment, you must complete the required setup and onboarding tasks. Typically, the License Owner begins the process by securing Admin access and creating Technical Admin users that can help with setup, customization, and development work.

Sign up for a Cloud account

If you do not have an Adobe Commerce on cloud infrastructure account, contact Sales. When you sign up, Adobe creates your account and sends you a welcome email that provides instructions on how to access the project interface. The email contains a link so that you can log in to your account and complete your initial project setup.

    Browse through the portal for helpful information and options to start planning your project, developing code, and preparing for UAT and site launch.

Access project and add users

The License Owner can add user accounts to provide access to code, manage branches, enter tickets, and support environments. These user accounts can include in-house development, consultants, and solution specialists.

Typically, the only user the License Owner must create is the Technical Admin. The Technical Admin needs a user account with admin access to create user accounts for developers, set environment permissions, and manage all branches and environments. The Technical Admin can be a developer, a consultant, an Adobe Solution Partner, or yourself.

You can create a Technical Admin through the Project portal, from the Cloud Console, or from the command line using the magento-cloud CLI.

User registration

You can only add registered users to your Adobe Commerce on cloud infrastructure projects and environments. If you have a new user, ask them to register for an account and to provide the email address associated with their account profile.

Shared account access

The License Owner can set up shared access for the account. Shared access allows trusted employees and service providers to use the Help center to submit and track Support tickets related to your Adobe Commerce on cloud infrastructure projects. For setup instructions, see the Shared Access article in the Help Center.

Cloud Console

You can use the Cloud Console to manage your project, add user accounts, and begin developing your store. The License Owner, Technical Admin users, and developers can use the Cloud Console to manage all environments and branches, environment variables, environment settings, and routes.

To access the Cloud Console:

  1. Log in to My account.

  2. On the My Account page, click the Commerce tab to see the projects in your account.

  3. Click the Projects tab and select a project.

  4. Click Infrastructure access, and then click Project Access (Web UI).
