Contributors netapp-reenu netapp-manini Download PDF of this page

You can view and manage your tenants and subtenants by using NetApp Service Engine. The initial tenancy is set up by NetApp support for service providers/partners and tenants. The region, zone, and subscription are already configured by support, and are available when you create tenants and subtenants under your tenancy.

Tenants

If you are a partner admin, you can create, modify, and delete a tenant from ADMINISTRATION > Tenants. Tenant admins can only view their respective tenant subscriptions and subtenants. For the tenants under your partner tenancy, you can also define the network.

Create a tenant

You can create a tenant if you are a partner admin. You can also create and manage networks for each tenant. For more information on creating networks, see Define network configurations with subnets.

  2. Add a name and the code.
    The code that represents the tenant should be unique within a NetApp Service Engine instance and consist of lower-case characters.
