How to get started in the Plasma Cloud console?


If you are new to the Plasma Cloud Console and want a quick guide on how to get started with it, this is the tutorial for you. We will guide you through the process to create your first organisation, setting up your first network and adding new devices to it.

Please note that in this guide we will assume that you have already created an account and logged in the Plasma Cloud console.

Step 1: Create your first organisation

Create your first organisation by navigating to Organisations Create new organisation on the top right of the console interface.

In the popup that will appear, write your organisation name, optionally a description and click Create.


The console will then notify you that this operation has succeeded.



Step 2: Create your first Network

Create your first network by navigating to Networks  Create new network on the top right of the console interface.


In the popup that will appear, write your network name, optionally a description and the timezone. Then click Create.


The console will then notify you that this operation has succeeded.



Step 3 (Optional): Customize your network settings and configure your first SSID

You can either decide to leave the default settings for your network, or to customize them. To change your network settings, navigate to Settings → Network in the main menu on the left.

From the same menu, create your first SSID by navigating SSIDs → Create new SSID.



In the popup that will appear, write your SSID name and click Create.

The console will then notify you that this operation has succeeded.



Settings → SSIDs → Your-SSID-Name. You might want to tweak these options if you wish, for instance, to setup a Wi-Fi password.



Step 4: Add your devices

Navigate back to Overview in the main menu and click on the map to add your first device. You can either decide to type the MAC address manually or to scan its QR code. Once the form is completely filled in, click Create.



This last step can be repeated to add as many devices as needed.

You can now plug-in your devices and connect them to the Internet. The Plasma Cloud configuration only takes a few seconds!
