Step 2 - Create an Account - Billing Point of Contact
The billing point of contact plays a very important role in the Cloud Services on-boarding process for your organization for two reasons:
(1) they are the recipient of the email confirmation and
(2) they must be the first person from your organization to create an account.
Upon receiving the email from AT&T Cloud Services, the billing point of contact simply goes to the Create an AT&T Cloud Services Account page, enters the temporary password provided, creates a new password, provide secret questions and answers, and accepts the general terms and conditions.
Step 3 - Create an Account - All Other Users
Before going to www.synaptic.att.com to create an account and purchase the cloud service of your choice or before joining someone’s cloud instance, please make sure the billing point of contact has added you to the account.
Once added, you will receive an email that includes a link and temporary set of credentials to login to the AT&T Cloud Solutions portal.

Before we get started, here are a few terms that will be helpful for you to become familiar with:
Billing Point of Contact – The billing point of contact is the primary financial contact for your organization. Their information is collected and included on the AT&T Cloud Services pricing schedule and/or Short-order form agreement. The billing point of contact is the first person to create an account with the use of the company permission code.
Create an Account – Creating an Account is the first step to using AT&T Cloud Services.
Step 1 - Receive a Contract Confirmation
Once you have signed the AT&T Cloud Services pricing schedule or short-order form agreement, it is submitted to the AT&T contract management organization to counter-sign and process.
When a contract has been fully-executed, the cloud portal sends an email to the Billing Point of Contact listed on the contract.
The email is your confirmation that your enterprise account has been set-up and is ready for use.
Important: Please do not create an account until your billing point of contact has received the email confirmation AND has set-up their account first.
