To use Astra Control Service, you need an Astra Control Service account that is associated with your NetApp Cloud Central account. Complete the Astra Control Service registration process and then, if you don’t already have a Cloud Central account, sign up to Cloud Central to access Astra Control Service.

Register for an Astra Control account

Before you can log in to Astra Control Service, you need to complete a registration process to obtain an Astra Control Service account.

When you use Astra Control Service, you’ll manage your apps from within an account. An account includes users who can view and manage the apps within the account, as well as your billing details.

Steps
  1. Go to the Astra Control page on Cloud Central.

  2. Select Get started with Astra Control.

  3. Select the FREE PLAN tab.

  4. Provide the required information in the form.

    A few important things to note as you fill out the form:

    • Your business name and address must be accurate because we verify them to meet the requirements of Global Trade Compliance.

    • The Astra Account Name is the name of your business’s Astra Control Service account. You’ll see this name in the Astra Control Service user interface. Note that you can create additional accounts (up to 5), if needed.

    • In the Business Email Address field, if you have a NetApp Cloud Central account, enter the email you use for that account here. If you don’t yet have a NetApp Cloud Central account, use the email address you enter here when you sign up to Cloud Central.

  5. Select Submit.

Sign up to Cloud Central

If you don’t already have a NetApp Cloud Central account, sign up to Cloud Central so you can access Astra Control Service and NetApp’s other cloud services. Astra Control Service is integrated within NetApp Cloud Central’s authentication service. If you already have a Cloud Central account and have completed registration, you can access Astra Control Service directly using your Cloud Central credentials.

Tip You can use single sign-on to log in to Cloud Central using credentials from your corporate directory (federated identity). To learn more, go to the Cloud Central Help Center and then select Cloud Central sign-in options.
Steps
  1. Go to NetApp Cloud Central.

  2. In the top right, select Sign up.

  3. Fill out the form.

    Ensure that the phone number and email address you enter here are the same that you used in the preceding free plan registration form.

  4. Select Sign up.

    Tip The email address that you enter in these forms is for your NetApp Cloud Central user ID. Use this Cloud Central user ID when you sign up for a new Astra Control Service account, or when an Astra Control Service admin invites you to an existing Astra Control Service account.
