Using the Tenant Administration Console
When you log on to the BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management as a cloud tenant administrator, also known as cloud organization administrator, you use the BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management – Tenant Administration Console to add new users, allocate and manage quota for the users, and request and approve services of cloud end users in your organization.
As a cloud tenant administrator, you can perform the following actions by using the Tenant Administration Console:
- Monitoring cloud services in your organization
- Managing firewalls in your organization as a tenant administrator
- Managing load balancers in your organization
- Managing network paths in your organization
- Creating and managing users
If you are managing multiple tenants, you can perform almost all activities except sharing service offering instances. For more information about managing multiple tenants, see Capabilities and limitations when managing multiple tenants.
See the following two-part video series from BMC Communities for an overview and demo of the Tenant Administration Console in BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management.

When you log on to the Tenant Administration Console, the default view displays the following tabs:
My Services – Specifies the service offering instances and their state.
The My Services tab displays a list of the service requests pending approval and the approved services for each cloud end user in your organization. The tab also displays details about these pending and approved services, such as their status and the date on which services end. You use these details to monitor cloud usage for your organization. For more information about monitoring cloud usage, see Monitoring cloud services in your organization.
The My Services tab contains the following link bars, or subtabs: Services, Servers, Storage, and Network. The link bars enable you to see details regarding these types of resources. For example, you can view your end users' commission end dates for provisioned services, load balancer pools for servers, or attached servers for network disks, among many other details.
Service Catalog – Specifies the list of available service offerings in the organization for cloud end users.
The Service Catalog tab shows the list of services made available to you and your end users by your cloud administrator.
The service catalog is where the process of requesting a cloud service, such as a Windows server or additional storage, begins.
Administration – Displays a list of cloud users in this organization along with the details, such as the log on ID, name, role, quota assigned to the user and so on.
You can add more users to the tenant. For more information, see Creating and managing users.
Activities - Displays the status of the resources that your end users requested, depending on which link bar you select.
For example, to see the status of the users you added or updated, click the Administration link bar.
