Contributors netapp-madkat netapp-lhalbert

You must create a tenant account in the Grid Manager for FabricPool use.

What you’ll need

About this task

Tenant accounts allow client applications to store and retrieve objects on StorageGRID. Each tenant account has its own account ID, authorized groups and users, buckets, and objects.

You can use the same tenant account for multiple ONTAP clusters. Or, you can create a dedicated tenant account for each ONTAP cluster as required.

Note These instructions assume that you have configured single sign-on (SSO) for the Grid Manager. If SSO is not enabled, use these instructions to create a tenant account instead.
