Creating a tenant account for FabricPool

You must create a tenant account in the Grid Manager for FabricPool use.

Before you begin

About this task

Tenant accounts allow client applications to store and retrieve objects on StorageGRID. Each tenant account has its own account ID, authorized groups and users, buckets, and objects.

You can use the same tenant account for multiple ONTAP clusters. Or, you can create a dedicated tenant account for each ONTAP cluster as required.

Note: These instructions assume that you have configured single sign-on (SSO) for the Grid Manager. If you are not using SSO, refer to the following instructions:

Administering StorageGRID > Creating a tenant account if StorageGRID is not using SSO


  1. Select Tenants.
  2. Select Create.
  3. Enter a display name for the FabricPool tenant account.
  4. Select S3.
  5. Leave the Allow Platform Services check box selected to enable the use of platform services.

    If platform services are enabled, a tenant can use features, such as CloudMirror replication, that access external services.

  6. Leave the Storage Quota field blank.
  7. In the Root Access Group field, select an existing federated group from the Grid Manager to have the initial Root Access permission for the tenant.
  8. Select Save.
