Set up your Cloud account


A Sitefinity Cloud account grants access to the Sitefinity Cloud Management Portal (based on Azure DevOps) and  specific sections of the Azure Management Portal (for monitoring, troubleshooting and access to database backups).

When getting started with Sitefinity Cloud, an account for the main contact from your organization is provisioned upon setting up your tenant space. At any stage in the process you can request the Sitefinity Cloud technical team to setup additional users that will be working on your project. These users can be members of your organization, or partner company users that need to work on the project.

For each user you want to add to your project, you must provide their email address. The Sitefinity Cloud team will setup these users by creating their accounts in your Sitefinity Cloud  Azure Active Directory (Azure AD). 

Configuring access rights

When you request a user to be added to your project you also specify their access rights to the Sitefinity project and your Sitefinity Cloud tenant space. Depending on your requirements, each user is assigned roles in their Azure AD account, and these roles are mapped to Sitefinity roles automatically. Custom roles are also supported.

By default, all users that you request to be added to your Sitefinity Cloud tenant space are provisioned with a Developer role. This role grants a user full access to the Management Portal features, including Code repositories, Dashboards, CI/CD Pipelines, and so on. For more information about the features included in the Management Portal see Management Portal. Users in the Developer role can also log in to your organization's Azure Portal and view the application insights, logs and other available information.

If you you want to grant a user a limited set of access rights, you can request the Sitefinity Cloud team to assign them to the Stakeholder role. Users in this role can only access the Management Portal, and see a limited set of features there. Stakeholders cannot access the project Code repository or trigger a CI/CD pipeline.
