Create your Cloud Identity account and first admin user

To create your Cloud Identity account and first admin user using the Setup Wizard: 

  1. In the About you section, enter your first and last name in the Name field.
  2. In the Current email address you use for work field, enter the email you used to create your prototype project.
    This email address will be used as a recovery address. It must be different from the address you create below that you’ll use as your admin account for Cloud Identity.
  3. In the About your business section, enter your company name in the Business or organization name field.
  4. In the Country/Region field, choose the appropriate country or region from the pulldown list.
  5. Click Next to set up your domain.
  6. In the Your Cloud Identity Domain window you'll add the domain you've already purchased for your company. You’ll need to verify that you own it by creating a specific CNAME record or uploading an html file.
  7. In the Create your Cloud Identity account window, enter a username and password. This account is your Cloud Identity administrator account and must be different from the email address you entered in step 2 above. As a best practice, we recommend that you enter a username with the following format: admin@yourdomain.com.

For more details and instructions about verifying your domain, see Verify your domain for Cloud Identity.
