Follow these Steps to Link your IaaS and PaaS Accounts

Share this post:

A couple of months ago, we released a way for you to streamline your IBM Cloud experience. Essentially, IaaS customers, who also have PaaS accounts, can now link IaaS and PaaS for an easy to navigate, single view of your accounts.

When you merge your accounts, you only manage one invoice through one login giving you access to a more robust service catalog. Together, you can explore 170+ PaaS and IaaS services which include popular IBM services such as Cloudant NoSQL DB, Watson Conversation, IoT, and Availability Monitoring. Additionally, get hands on with 3rd party services such as Twilio, PubNub, and SendGrid. If this sounds good, switch to your IBMid to get started.

Follow these steps to get started (est. time 7 mins):

Step 1

Sign into your account

Step 2 On your SoftLayer Portal Account Summary Page select: “New! Link a Bluemix Account”

Step 3 Review the terms.

Step 4 Select “I understand and agree to the terms above.”

Step 5 If your IBMid has an associated PaaS account you’ll be directed to an auth page, then back to the final “link” confirmation step. If you don’t have an associated PaaS account, you’ll see the screen prompt below to create a new one.

This is a big step towards simplifying how you manage your account so that you get more from IBM Cloud. Have questions? Submit a support ticket, contact sales via live chat, or login to read FAQs.
