Register for an account

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

When you use Astra, 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 page on Cloud Central.

  2. Click Sign up for the Free Plan.

  3. 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 account. You’ll see this name in the Astra user interface. Note that you can create additional accounts (up to 5), if that’s required for your needs.

  4. Click Submit.

    If you’re logged in to Cloud Central already, you’ll see a registration status and then you’ll be redirected to the Astra Dashboard. Otherwise, you’ll be prompted to log in first.

    Now that you’re registered, you can access Astra directly from https://astra.netapp.io.
