If you're an existing Azure tenant, you'll be led through the process of linking your tenant the first time you try to add an Azure cloud.
Q: Can I group my clouds on the Telstra Cloud Sight platform?
Yes. Clouds are added, by default, to workspaces that allow you to group them.

Workspaces are discrete spaces that hold one or more clouds or associated services. The composition of a workspace is entirely up to you. You can add as many cloud services to a workspace as you like.
Q: Does every cloud service have to belong to an workspace?
Yes. A cloud cannot reside outside an workspace. When you add a new cloud, you can choose a workspace for it. Please note that, at the moment, you cannot move clouds between workspaces so make sure you add it to the correct one.
Q: How do I add a new workspace?
You can add workspaces from the 'Cloud services' page (home page).
