In this article:


When you sign up for the Cloud Application Manager Enterprise Edition, you get a default administrator account that lets you globally manage settings for all Cloud Application Manager users in your organization. Besides the default account, you can give any Cloud Application Manager user administrator access through the admin console under Organization > Administrators.


All users with Cloud Application Manager organization administrator access.


  • Access to Cloud Application Manager, Management site.

  • The user must be an Administrator of the organization in Cloud Application Manager.

  • The user should be at the organization level scope to access the Settings option on the left side menu. Accessing that option is also possible through the pencil button of an organization element in the Context Switcher.

Giving Admin Access

  1. Log in to Cloud Application Manager as the default administrator.

  2. Access to the Context Switcher drop-down located in the top navigation menu, open it and click on Organizations.

  4. Under Administrators section click Add, then type the user’s name in the search field and, if found, select it in the drop-down. This process can be repeated until all desired users are selected so, at the end, just saving the new values is left.
