Step 1: Begin

In this Quick Start, we provide a simple, three-step path to quickly get you up and running with Mist. You'll create your account and organization, activate your subscriptions, set up your first site, and add your administrator accounts.

Create Your Mist Account and Organization

To access the portal, the first thing that you need to do is create a Mist account.
  1. In your web browser, go to:
  2. Click the Create Account button.
  3. Click the button for the region that is closest to you and your users.
    • Global (North and South America)

    • Europe

    • APAC (Asia Pacific)

  4. Complete the on-screen form to set up your login credentials.
    Mist sends an account validation email.
  5. Open the email, click the link, and log in.
  6. Click Create Organization.
  7. Enter a name for your organization.

    Your organization name appears at the top of the page. When you created the organization, Mist also created your first site, as shown on the Monitor page. Your account has Super User permissions, giving you access to all areas of the portal.
