Add a Region

After creating a cloud that can support multiple regions, the next step is to create the first region for the cloud. Immediately after clicking done from the Add a Cloud dialog box, you are brought to the Clouds page with the cloud you just created at the bottom of the list as shown in the figure below.

With the cloud you just created selected on the left hand of the screen, the right hand of the screen displays an Add Region button. Click this button to add a region. This brings you to the Add Region dialog box. In the case of AWS and other public cloud providers, the dialog box will display radio buttons for each region as shown in the figure below. Select a region and click Save.



???In dialog box instructions change "regions" to "region" because these are radio buttons???

If the cloud you just created is a OpenStack cloud, the Add Region dialog box allows you to enter a Region Name and Display Name as shown in the figure below and click Save.

???Do either of these names have to match text entered in OpenStack???

In either scenario, after click Save you are brought back to the Clouds page. The region (or regions) you added will be listed on the right side of the page as shown in the figure below.

Next step: Click the name of the region on the right side of the page and follow the instructions in Configure a Region.
