Are Multiple Virtual Clouds in Use?

The way you select a virtual cloud in CloudCreator depends on whether your company is using single or multiple virtual clouds, and your role. 

 

Use the table below to determine whether your company has single or multiple clouds in use.  

 

Clouds in Use  Example
Single Cloud

Your CloudCreator screen shows only your company's name:

 

Multiple Clouds 
 

If your company is using multiple virtual clouds, and your CloudCreator role only allows you to access one virtual cloud, you will only see the virtual cloud name:

 

If your CloudCreator role allows you to access multiple virtual clouds, you will see both the company name and the currently selected child name. Select the drop-down menu to change the selected virtual cloud.
