Cloud Insights Onboarding Edit on GitHub Request doc changes

Before you can start working with Cloud Insights, you must sign up on the NetApp Cloud Central portal. If you already have a NetApp Cloud Central login, you can start a free trial of Cloud Insights with a few quick steps.

Creating your NetApp Cloud Central account

To sign up for access to NetApp’s cloud services, go to NetApp Cloud Central and click Sign Up.

  • Enter a valid email address and choose a password.

  • Enter your company name, and your full name.

  • Accept the terms and conditions and click Sign Up.

You will then be taken to NetApp’s cloud offerings page.

On the Cloud offerings page, choose Go to Cloud Data Services.

What if I already have a NetApp Cloud login?

If you already have a NetApp Cloud Central account, simply choose Log In on the NetApp Cloud Central portal page.

Enter your email address and password. You will then be taken to NetApp’s cloud offerings page.

On the Cloud offerings page, choose Go to Cloud Data Services.

Starting your Cloud Insights free trial

If this is your first time logging in to Cloud Insights, under the Cloud Insights offering, click on Start Free trial. You will be prompted to answer a few questions. Cloud Insights will then create your company’s environment.

You will receive an email when your site creation is complete. Once the creation of your environment is complete, you can use your Cloud Central credentials to log in, accept the terms of service, and start your free, 14-day trial of Cloud Insights. During this trial you can explore all the features that Cloud Insights Standard Edition has to offer.

During the free trial, you can start your subscription to Cloud Insights at any time. When you are subscribed, Cloud Insights will use the features based on your current subscription.

Sign in and go

Once your tenant has been created, you can simply log in to the NetApp Cloud Portal and click Go to Cloud Insights. You will be taken directly to your Cloud Insights environment.

You can also open a browser directly to your Cloud Insights environment URL:

https://<environment-name>.c01.cloudinsights.netapp.com/

The URL will also be included in each user’s invitation email for simple access and bookmarking. If you are not already logged in to Cloud Central, you will be prompted to log in.

New users must still sign up for access to Cloud Central before they can access their environment URL.

Logging Out

To log out of Cloud Insights, click your User Name and select Log Out. You will be taken back to the Cloud Central sign in screen.

Logging out of Cloud Insights logs you out of Cloud Central. You will also be logged out of other NetApp Cloud services that use the Cloud Central sign-in.
