User Registration Guide
In order to take full advantage of the Arista Community, support resources and knowledge base, you must have an Arista user account.
On the "User Registration" form, enter the required fields, with special attention to the following fields:
Email: The email used on the form must match your organization's email domain. Generic email domains such as gmail.com or yahoo.com will not be accepted.
Company: If multiple subsidiaries, the general company name or the main subsidiary name can be entered here.
Country: This is the billing country for your company. If you manage multiple countries or there's no subsidiary in your country, enter the headquarters billing country.
On the next screen,
User Role: Select your user role Customer, Partner, or Guest.
Switch Serial Number: Not required, but this will help ensure your registration goes through successfully.
Once the User Registration form is submitted, you will receive an activation link in your email. Activate your account by clicking on the link. After this step, your user account is active and ready to access the Support Portal and Arista Community Central.
Users are required to revalidate the account once a year (from the time of registration or the last revalidation) to confirm the email address is still valid. An email will be sent to the user's email address from "firstname.lastname@example.org".
Registered users will be given permission to view resources on Arista Portal and Arista Community Portal based on the account type (Customer/Partner) and support status.
