Flex Subscriptions

You can optionally use your existing Hortonworks Flex Subscriptions to cover the cloud controller and all clusters created. To do that you must:

  1. Configure SmartSenseID and Telemetry when launching the cloud controller.
  2. Register your Flex Subscription in the cloud controller web UI.

Once you've performed these steps, your flex subscription will be used for the cloud controller and all newly created clusters. You can register multiple subscriptions and manage them in the cloud controller UI.

For general information about the Hortonworks Flex Support Subscription, visit the Hortonworks Support page at https://hortonworks.com/services/support/enterprise/.

Configuring SmartSense

If you would like to use flex subscriptions with HDCloud for AWS, you must provide your SmartSense ID and Telemetry Opt In when launching the cloud controller. These options are available in the SmartSense Configuration section of the CloudFormation template.

Managing Flex Subscriptions

You can manage your flex subscriptions from the Settings page in the cloud controller UI. This page is accessible from the Settings link in the top right corner, next to your email address.
