When signing in to the Administration Console, the first login screen requires an existing My VMware account that is associated with your Horizon Cloud environment. To give other users in your company or organization administrative access to your environment, you associate their My VMware accounts with your environment and give their Active Directory user accounts the role (Super Administrator or Demo Administrator) appropriate for their job role.

About this task

You associate My VMware accounts with your environment using either the My VMware Accounts area in the Getting Started wizard or the General Settings screen.

Important:

Even though you can perform these steps before the My VMware accounts are created at vmware.com, the accounts must be created at vmware.com before they can be used to log in to the Administration Console. My VMware accounts are created using the registration process at https://my.vmware.com/web/vmware/registration.

Procedure

  1. In the Administration Console, use one of these methods to associate My VMware accounts with your environment.
    • From the Getting Started wizard, click General Setup > My VMware Accounts > Add.

    • Click Settings > General Settings > Edit and scroll to the My VMware Accounts area.

    The list of My VMware Accounts already associated with your environment is displayed.

  2. Add a row to the list by clicking the plus icon (Icon for adding new rows to the My VMware Accounts list).

    A new row appears with fields for entering a first name, last name, and the My VMware account ID.

  3. Make a row for each My VMware account you want to associate with your environment and enter the My VMware information in each row.
  4. Click Save to save the information to the system.

Results

If all of the added My VMware account IDs exist at vmware.com, they can be used to sign in to the first Horizon Cloud login screen.

Important:

The steps you just completed do not create the actual My VMware accounts. My VMware accounts are created using the registration process at https://my.vmware.com/web/vmware/registration.

What to do next

If the Active Directory accounts for the added users do not have an associated role, complete the steps described in Assign Horizon Cloud Administrative Roles to Active Directory Groups.
