  2. Your Environments page is displayed.
    Click Create Environment
  3. Enter the cluster name as one word between 8 and 20 characters.
    Select the cluster size. (For testing purposes, Automation Hero_ recommends starting with 2 compute and 1 UI node.)

    Hero Platform_ compute nodes have 8vCPU and 32GB RAM.

    Select the Cloud region closest to you. If you are based in the EU, select Dublin to respect GDPR. 
    Select the cluster version (Hero Platform_ release version).
    Mark the box that you acknowledge that paid resources will be created during the new cluster provisioning.
    Click OK.

  4. A verification box is displayed. 
    To complete the environment creation process, click OK.

    It may take up to 10 minutes for your environment to be created. When successfully created, you will receive an email notification. 

  5. When the process has completed, your new environment's status is marked with a green circle.

You can create multiple environments in your Hero_Cloud account. 

Cloud environments are billed based on the time they are running. 

To reduce costs, ensure that environments not in use are stopped or deleted.

Log Into Hero Platform_

Once the environment is created, click the environment name to launch Hero Platform_ in that environment. No additional login is required. 

When logging into Hero Platform_ directly from Hero_Cloud, the user must first log out of Hero_Cloud to be able to log out of Hero Platform_.
