In the previous part of this blog we prepared the Service Management Portal and API for tenant access. This part of the series covers the experience from a tenant point of view.
When a tenant connects to the Tenant Site on the public secure URL (in our example https://portal.hyper-v.nu) the portal presents the login page.
A new tenant can sign up to a public plan by selecting signup in the top right.
When a new tenant selects a plan that was made public, the descriptions we specified earlier are shown. When a new tenant enters an email address, a password and clicks sign up the user account will be created in the SQL database and the tenant logs in to the Tenant Site.
It is possible to create an additional step for a new tenant by specifying an invitation code in the public plan.
When a new tenant selects to sign up to a public plan that has an invitation code specified the user is presented with an additional column Access Code in the portal.
