Cloudflare
ORG

has always worked closely with partners to help build a better Internet. From our earliest

Hosting Partners
ORG

, to our latest Cloudflare

One
CARDINAL

program and

Authorized Service Delivery
ORG

partners, we are dedicated to supporting our peers across the networking and cybersecurity ecosystem to secure Enterprise networks, mission-critical applications, and remote employees. As part of that commitment, we are proud to announce the general availability of our

first
ORDINAL

dashboard for our Tenant Platform, providing an intuitive user interface for agencies and partners to manage their client accounts.

Tenant Platform introduction

The

first
ORDINAL

version of the Tenant Platform was created in

2018
DATE

to support one of our large integration partners,

IBM Cloud
ORG

. They needed a secure way to independently provision accounts for their clients, spin up custom subscriptions, invite service users within each new account, and begin to configure the service. This platform, although

API
ORG

only, worked extremely well with our OEM and integration partners that were including our solution within their current platform to support their customers.

User interface overview

As

Cloudflare
ORG

has expanded the type of partners and customers it works with, it became clear that a user interface would be required to support agency, service and system integration partners that needed the same administrative controls as our integration partners, but available within our core dashboard. This allows scaled account management to be available to our partners as well as large

Enterprise
ORG

customers managing multiple business units.

Accessing the platform

All of our current partner administrators are now able to access the

Tenants
ORG

link on the left hand navigation within the

Cloudflare
ORG

dashboard. This will place them within the Tenant Overview page.

Tenant Overview

Within the Tenant Overview, we surface our documentation and some basic information about the tenant system and the program level of the partner.

Account insights

After speaking with our partners, the ability to quickly assess the health of accounts and underlying zones was paramount. To this end, we prioritized surfacing account-level security and performance insights for all child accounts within the

Tenant
ORG

system. This allows partner support teams to immediately dive into a specific Account that may be experiencing an issue or misconfiguration.

Security Insights allow you to quickly confirm that an application is effectively onboarded.

Traffic Insights surface error rates across all child accounts.

Managed accounts

An additional improvement is the creation of a Managed Account section under the

Tenant
ORG

category. This section allows you to quickly search for and get a summary of accounts in active management by your

Tenant
PERSON

system. This table will include cumulative spend of the account, product activation reviews, and the most recent action from the account audit log. The goal is to provide a single page to understand the health of all of your managed accounts, and jump into the specific account when necessary.

Managed Accounts provide a summary of all child accounts.

2023 and 2024
DATE

, we look to continue to grow our Tenant Platform across a few key areas. We have a robust roadmap to continue to mature our API and

UI
ORG

for tenant user management, centralized subscription management, billing and analytics rollups, and other foundational improvements. Our goal is to make

Cloudflare
