StreamNative Cloud Console Basics

The StreamNative Cloud Console enables you to view and manage instances, clusters, tenants, namespaces, topics, view your account billing information, and more. This page describes some common tasks you can complete in the Cloud Console.

Use the Cloud Console

Access the Cloud Console at the following URL:


To access the console, you will be required to sign sign in to your StreamNative Cloud account. You can sign up for an account with $200 credits, if you don't have an account.

Use the Breadcrumb in the StreamNative Console to navigate the structure of StreamNative Cloud: switch into different organizations, instances, clusters, tenants, and namespaces by selecting where you want to go in the dropdown.


The breadcrumb contains five values that correspond to resources within StreamNative:

When navigating to the StreamNative Console, your organization and instance will be preset for you. However, the breadcrumb requires you to select a cluster, tenant, and namespace on your own before the full StreamNative Console menu can be enabled; this is to ensure that all users have the appropriate level of access to each resource within StreamNative Cloud.

Selecting your resources

To select a resource, click on the arrow in the dropdown, and select one from the available options.

Switching from one resource to another will require you to reselect everything below that resource. For example, if you switch from instance A to instance B using the breadcrumb, you will need to reselect a cluster, tenant, and namespace, because instance B contains different clusters/tenants/namespaces from instance A.

Dashboard Page

The Dashboard page provides an overview of the instances and users, and guides you to complete the whole process to set up and manage your Pulsar cluster.

For users who don't have a cluster yet, the Dashboard page serves as the prompt for moving the users forward in the provisioning process. For users who already have a cluster, the Dashboard page encourages the users to broaden their usage of StreamNative Cloud.

After logging in to the StreamNative Console, you can go to the Dashboard page by clicking it on the left navigation pane. The Dashboard page consists of three parts:

  • The Instance card

    You can create, view, and manage your instances on this card. For details, see work with instances.

  • The Users card

    You can invite, view, and manage users on this card. For details, see work with users.

  • The Setup guide area

    This section walks you through the basic setup and configuration process, such as adding payment methods, creating service accounts, creating your Pulsar instances and clusters, viewing your tenants and namespaces, creating your topics, setting up your client, and so on. When an operation is completed, the related checkbox is checked.
