How does a Governance user create Sub Accounts on behalf of an MSP/VAR Control Account?

If you have a WACM account, log in to the platform here:

A pre-requisite of this article is: What are the differences between Governance roles?

The WACM Account Governance feature enables some Governance users with the ability to create Sub-Accounts on behalf of MSPs, VARs, or any other users of Wasabi Account Control Manager. A user must be either the role of a Governance Plus Admin or Governance Plus Staff in order to create Sub-Accounts for a Control Account. 

Once you are logged in as one of these user types, follow the steps that a Control Account would take to create a Sub-Account:

1. Navigate to the "Sub-Accounts" tab.

2. Select "Create Sub-Account".


3. Provide the following info and click "Create".

  • Customer name
  • Email
  • Wasabi console password
  • Confirm Wasabi console password
  • Check "On Trial"
  • Choose trial quota 
  • Choose trial duration 
  • Optionally set the following:
    • Send Password Reset To Sub Account Email - Will send the password reset email to the sub-account if enabled
    • Password Reset Required - Will require the sub-account to perform password reset upon first login
    • Enable FTP Access - Will enable FTP access to the sub-account



4. Once creation completes, a new modal opens up confirming the creation with s3 access & secret keys. MSP admin could download the keys as a text file by clicking "Download Keys" or click "Copy Keys" to copy buffer.


5. The newly created sub-account will be listed in the Sub-Accounts tab.
