Setting up your account

Before you can sign in to the HPE Consumption Analytics platform, you need an account.  Please contact your HPE Account Support Manager (ASM) to request access.

Activating your account

When your account is created, the portal sends a verification email to the address you specified.  You must respond to the verification email and complete your registration within 30 days.  During the activation process, you verify your username and update your password for your HPE Consumption Analytics platform account. 

Signing in to your account

Once your account is activated, you can use your HPE Consumption Analytics platform credentials to sign in to your account - or you can sign in using the credentials for your HPE Passport, Microsoft, or Google account. This allows you to manage just one password (the one for the external account), a capability known as Single Sign-On (SSO). 

To sign in to your account directly 

  1. Go to the login page
  2. Enter your HPE Consumption Analytics platform account email address and password.
  3. Click Sign in.

If you forget your password, click Forget your password? to reset your password. An email will be sent to your email address with a reset link. 

To sign in to your account with SSO

HPE Consumption Analytics platform Interface

When you sign in to HPE Consumption Analytics platform, you will see your default view, which displays a snapshot of the usage of and spending on your IT environment.  It provides you with a single view across platforms. 

The HPE GreenLake Customer View is similar to the Public Cloud View page shown above;.

The dashboard contains the following:

Navigation pane  The Navigation pane lists the available features in the portal and allows you to navigate through the interface. You can also view the number of Health Checks notifications adjacent to Health Check in the Navigation pane.
Page Your view contains pages with one or more charts and reports. Click the page title to navigate between pages.
Menu bar  

The menu bar contains a list of available functions. From the menu bar, you can:

  • View notifications
  • View and manage your account preferences
  • Change your password 
  • Take a tour
  • Log out
Help Help contains detailed documentation, illustrations, and recommended video tutorials.

The footer contains the Contact Support link. Click Contact Support to submit a support case.


Your content in the default view may differ to other users' content, since your view is based on your user and group permissions. For example, if you do not have administration capabilities, you can only view your content in your default view, and you cannot view the navigation pane.  Administrators assign your view, manage your permissions, and customize your view for your use.

For more on your default view, see Working with the default pages.
