Creating and managing tenants
In BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management, a tenant is a group of users who need access to the BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management My Cloud Services Console to request services from the cloud. A tenant can be any group of users that needs to isolate its data and services from other groups. The use of tenants in the cloud allows a company or service provider to segregate groups in the cloud and to control the visibility and permissions for offerings in the Service Catalog that are available to tenant users.
Tenants used in BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management are created in the Application Administration Console. A company is the primary data structure for a tenant. If you need to partition data and service access between groups, you must create a company for each group.
Before you begin
You must create at least one company in the Application Administration Console before you can begin using BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management, as described in Creating the cloud administrator user and the provider company.
High-level steps for setting up tenants
- Create tenant companies and users, as described in Creating tenant companies and users.
- Onboard tenants, as described in Onboarding tenants.
- Map tenants to network containers, as described in Mapping tenants to network containers.
- Select packages of requestable offerings that the tenant users can request, as described in Selecting tenant entitlement packages.
After setting up tenants, continue with Creating and managing requestable services to enable cloud users to make service requests from the BMC My Cloud Services Console.
