Digital Advisor integration with BlueXP

Contributors netapp-manishc netapp-bcammett

Digital Advisor (formerly Active IQ Digital Advisor) is now fully integrated with BlueXP. You can now manage your clusters and access all the features of Digital Advisor from the BlueXP user interface (UI).

Using BlueXP, IT experts and cloud architects can centrally manage their hybrid multi-cloud infrastructure. All you need is a NetApp Support Site (NSS) account to access Digital Advisor in BlueXP.

Integration overview

Starting in November 2022, Digital Advisor users will be encouraged to use Digital Advisor in BlueXP. From BlueXP, you’ll have access to the same Digital Advisor interface that you’re used to, plus more. BlueXP enables you to create and administer cloud storage (for example, Cloud Volumes ONTAP), use NetApp’s data services (for example, Cloud Backup), and control many on-prem and edge storage devices.

Access Digital Advisor in BlueXP

You can access Digital Advisor from BlueXP to manage your cluster.

Steps
  1. Open a web browser and go to BlueXP

  2. Select Log in with your NetApp Support Site Credentials and enter your credentials.

    If you previously created a BlueXP login using an email and password, then you’ll need to continue using that login option instead.

  3. When prompted, log in with your NetApp Support Site credentials.

    This login is different from the login completed in step 2. In step 2, you logged in to the BlueXP platform. Now you’re logging in to Digital Advisor.

Result

All your existing watchlists and configurations show up and you can now use Digital Advisor like you typically do.
