DescriptionThis article describes how you can easily manage access to a data center (by requesting personalized badges to visit the data center), and how to request access to visit the data center.
In order to request access or create access cards for your colocation products, you need to access the Colocation drop-down menu from the Leaseweb Customer Portal dashboard.
Managing access to a data center
The Access Management page allows you to create users with access-granting rights. These users will have a separate login to the Customer Portal, and they will only be able to request access (for different users) to our data centers on your behalf.
Personalized badges can ONLY be ordered by Private Colocation customers. This feature is not available for Shared Racks.
Requesting personalized badges through the Leaseweb Customer Portal is currently only possible by the Master User of the account for AMS-01 only.
- You can do this in the Customer Portal by navigating to Colocation > Access Management.
You can request a personalized badge by clicking on Request personalized badge for myself button, or create a user by clicking on Create User button. You can also see a list of existing access management users which can be managed.
- Click Create User to fill in the request form for another user.
Click Request personalized badge for myself to fill in the request form for yourself.
The field "User can bring visitors" means that the person who is requesting access can bring extra persons to the datacenter.
Once ordered, the personalized badge will be ready for collection after one business day. The person receiving the badge must collect it in person from the data center with a government-issued ID. If the badge is not collected within 30 calendar days, it will expire for security reasons.
Before you visit the data center, you need to request access to the data center.
Also you can request badges for your end-customers. The person requesting the badge will be responsible for them.
