#Set up your flexibility instance

The Akeneo cloud instance creation and access are managed on the projects console of your Portal.

Following the purchase of a flexibility instance, an email is sent to the setup administrator inviting them to complete the setup form to create the instance.

You can set up the instance from the link given in the mail or by accessing the instance configuration page on the projects console.
