Managing Cloud Pak for Data as a Service

Managing Cloud Pak for Data as a Service

As the owner or an administrator of the IBM Cloud account, you can monitor and manage services and the platform.

An IBM Cloud account administrator is a user in the account who was assigned the Administrator role in IBM Cloud for the All Identity and Access enabled services option in IAM. If you're not sure of your roles, see Determine your roles.

You perform some administrative tasks within Cloud Pak for Data as a Service, and others in IBM Cloud. Some tasks require steps in both areas, depending on your goals.

Configuring services

The core services include the Watson Studio, Watson Machine Learning, Watson OpenScale, IBM Knowledge Catalog, Watson Query, DataStage, Match 360, and Cognos Dashboard Embedded services.

Switch service region

The platform and services are available in multiple IBM Cloud service regions and you can have services in more than one region. Your projects, catalogs, and data are specific to the region in which they were saved and can be accessed only from your services in that region. If you provision Watson Studio services in both the Dallas and the Frankfurt regions, you can't access projects that you created in the Frankfurt region from the Dallas region.

To switch your service region:

  1. Log in to Cloud Pak for Data as a Service.
  2. Click the Region Switcher Region Switcher icon in the home page header.
  3. Select the region that contains your services and projects.

For wider browsers, you can select the region from the dropdown menu.
