This article provides instructions for enabling Ingram Micro Cloud Orchestrator. When Cloud Orchestrator has been successfully enabled, ‘Cloud Orchestrator’ will be displayed as an option on the Customer Control Panel’s (NextCP) left-side menu.

You can enable Cloud Orchestrator either by acquiring a Cloud Orchestrator subscription from the Ingram Micro Cloud Marketplace (CMP) or by enabling it from the Cloud Orchestrator tile found on Customer Control Panel’s (CCP’s) ‘Home’ page.

Note: The Cloud Orchestrator tile is available on CCP’s ‘Home’ tile only if Ingram Micro Cloud Orchestrator is being offered by the Customer’s Service Provider.
