Submit a request and receive a license key

CluedIn SaaS is currently available by invitation only. You can request an invitation here.


After you submit an application, you’ll receive an email with the license key needed to complete the SaaS installation process.

The CluedIn SaaS installation process consists of 2 parts:

  1. Subscribing to CluedIn SaaS in the Azure Marketplace. All details provided in this step are required by Microsoft.

  2. Configuring an account with CluedIn. All details provided in this step are required by CluedIn.


Subscribe to CluedIn SaaS in Azure Marketplace

Before you start the CluedIn SaaS installation process, make sure you meet all Azure requirements.

Make sure that you have enabled marketplace purchases and configured the required user permissions (at least Contributor) for the subscription where you want to store the CluedIn SaaS application. For more information, see Enable marketplace purchases in Azure.

To subscribe to CluedIn SaaS

  1. In the Azure Marketplace, find CluedIn Master Data Management – MDM (SaaS).

  2. On the CluedIn Master Data Management SaaS page, select Get It Now.


  3. On the page that opens, review basic information about CluedIn SaaS. Then, select Subscribe.


  4. On the Basics tab, in the Project details section, do the following:

    1. Select a Subscription where you want to store CluedIn SaaS application in your Azure account.

      If you encounter an error stating that the subscription requires permission to make purchases, it means that you don’t have the required permission for the subscription.


      Contact your IT team to get the required permissions. For more information, see Enable marketplace purchases in Azure.

    2. Select or create a Resource group where the SaaS subscription will be stored. If you create a new resource group, you need to choose the location for that resource group.

      The location of the resource group is not the same as the Azure region where CluedIn will be installed, it is just the location where subscription will be stored. You’ll select the Azure region when configuring your CluedIn account as described in the next section.

  5. In the SaaS details section, enter a Name for the SaaS application.


  6. (Optional) Select Next: Tags On the Tags tab, you can define tags to help you find your SaaS resource later.

  7. Select Review + subscribe.

  8. On the Review + subscribe tab, review the terms of use, contact information, and billing details.

    Billing is handled exclusively by Microsoft.

  9. Select Subscribe.

    You’ll see the following message: Your SaaS subscription is in progress. This process takes a few minutes. Don’t close the window until it’s finished.


    After the subscription is completed, the Configure account now button becomes active, and you’ll receive an email from Microsoft requesting you to activate the new subscription.


  10. Either in the email or in the Azure Marketplace, select the corresponding button to configure the account. If you selected the button in the Azure Marketplace, you can ignore the email.

    You’ll be redirected to the CluedIn account configuration page.

Configure an account with CluedIn

    3. Enter a Password for signing in to your CluedIn instance.

    4. Select an Azure Region where you want CluedIn to be installed.
