Account and Organization

In order to use Statehub with your Kubernetes clusters, you must create a Statehub account. This account will allow you to create globally replicated states, so that you can move applications between your different Kubernetes cluster in different cloud vendors or geographical regions.

When you first sign up for a Statehub account, you need to choose your StateHub organization ID. This ID is unique for your organization and cannot be changed.

All resources under your Statehub organization ID are private to your organization, and will only be accessible to your Kubernetes clusters and visible to users from within your organization.

  1. Go to https://console.statehub.io/auth/register
  2. Choose a Statehub organization ID, name, email, and click "Register" Sign up to Statehub
  3. You'll receive an email requesting you to verify your email address.
