You can add a credentials record for a tenant account — an account that you plan to use to connect to a service provider (SP).
Before you add a credentials record, the SP must register a tenant account on the SP Veeam backup server. Tenants without accounts cannot connect to the SP and use Veeam Cloud Connect resources. For more information, see the Registering Tenant Accounts section in the Veeam Cloud Connect Guide.
To create a credentials record for a tenant account:
- From the main menu, select Manage Cloud Credentials.
- Click Add > Veeam Cloud Connect service provider account.
- In the Username field, enter a user name for the account that the SP has provided to you.
Note that if the SP allocated to you replication resources in VMware vCloud Director, you must enter a user name for the vCloud Director tenant account in the following format: Organization\Username. For example: TechCompanyOrg\Administrator.
- In the Password field, enter a password for the account that the SP has provided to you. To view the entered password, click and hold the eye icon on the right of the field.
- In the Description field, enter a description for the created credentials record.
