The My Services tab displays the status of your provisioned service requests. The My Services tab contains the following subtabs:
The link bars allow you to see details regarding these types of resources. For example, you can view commission end dates for provisioned services, load balancer pools for servers, or attached servers for network disks, among many other details.

- Related requests
- The lower pane gives you the option of displaying information about server or PaaS resources.
- When you click PaaS in the heading of the lower pane, an icon for each provisioned database is displayed.
- When you click Servers in the heading of the lower pane, an icon for each server that is part of the service is displayed.
Using the icons you can click the Remote Connect icon to start a remote terminal session on the server or you can click the Details icon to display detailed information about the server. Information about servers is displayed on the Servers link bar and information about the database is displayed on the PaaS link bar. In either case, information is filtered to show only information about the selected server or database.
