How to create a user and login

How to login the Cloud Topology Designer?

  • Go to:
  • Login with your Open Telekom Cloud credentials (i.e., domain name, username, and password), just like when you login the console:

  • After logging in, you can choose a project, where you want to design and deploy your applications:

You cannot login?

  • You may use the wrong credentials from MyWorkplace.
  • You may have Virtual MFA Device enabled for login authentication. Please choose either SMS, Email, or disable it instead (Go to the console / click on username / My credentials / Login authentication).
  • You do not have an account in the Identity Management. Read below to create one.

How to create a new user account

In case you do not have an Open Telekom Cloud user account, please ask your tenant administrator to create one for you. The following tutorial shows how a tenant administrator creates a new user and assign the given user to a project in the Identity Management:

1. Create a new project

Fig. Identity Management

  1. Go to: Projects
  2. Create Project.
  3. Input project name: eu-de_test

2. Create a user group for a project

  1. Go to: User Groups / Create User Group
  2. Input a group name: test

3. Set permissions for the new user group

  1. Go to: User Groups / Modify User Group
  2. Go to: Attach Policy next to the new project eu-de_test

Fig. Assign permission to the group

  • Add the Tenant Administrator policy to the project. Now users in the group test have the permissions to provision cloud resources in the project eu-de_test.

You can also allow users to design the application for you but they do not have the permissions to deploy the application in a given project by adding the Tenant Guest policy instead.

4. Create a new user in a group

  1. Go to: Users / Create User.
  2. Input user name: testuser.
  3. Assign the user to the new group test.

Now the user testuser has the permissions to provision cloud resources in the project eu-de_test.
