After creating a tenant and its users, you must onboard the tenant before its users can access the BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management My Cloud Services Console.
Using the Onboard Tenant dialog box, you can onboard companies as cloud tenants and select the software packages that tenant users are allowed to request. A package is a set of requestable offerings that exist in the Service Catalog. For information about requestable offerings and packages, see Creating and managing requestable services.
Before you begin
- The tenant companies that you want to onboard must be configured in the Application Administration Console, as described in Creating tenant companies and users.
- You can only onboard companies whose type is specified as Operating Company or Customer in the Application Administration Console.
To onboard a tenant
- From the BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management Administration Console, click the vertical Workspaces menu on the left side of the window and select Tenants.
- Click the Onboard Tenant icon . The Onboard Tenant dialog box is displayed.
- Select the Company that you want to onboard by clicking the Name menu button.
The following information is displayed:

Tenant tags are necessary only if two or more tenants share a network container.

If no packages exist yet, skip this step and finish onboarding the tenant. You can return later to select available packages for the tenant company, as described in Editing tenant packages and contract end date. For information about creating service offering packages, see Creating and managing requestable services.
