When you log into the CloudLink Gateway Portal via the Mitel MiAccess Portal, your MiAccess account is created as a customer in the CloudLink Platform.
If you have a CloudLink Gateway and a PBX on your LAN, you can onboard your own MiAccess account into CloudLink to become familiar with the process. Doing this also enables your account to use CloudLink applications such as OfficeLink and MiVoice Office.
Every customer in the CloudLink Platform is assigned a unique identifier known as the 'Account ID'.

Creating a New Customer

Modifying an Existing Customer
Click anywhere in the row of an existing customer to navigate to the customer and modify the existing connection to the CloudLink Platform or the PBX. You can also do this to perform troubleshooting.
The CloudLink Gateway Portal can be accessed from anywhere with an Internet connection to modify or delete an existing customer.
To properly associate a Gateway with a new customer on the CloudLink platform, you must first access the CloudLink Gateway Portal by connecting to the Gateway. After a customer has already been associated with a Gateway, you can access the CloudLink Gateway Portal directly or via Mitel MiAccess to onboard and manage customers.
