|Fig 5. Successfully Registered|
After giving the information required, you can click 'Submit' to proceed with registering. Once you have successfully registered (Fig 5), a confirmation mail will be sent to the email address provided by you during the registration, within a minute or two.
Click the link provided in the mail. That will confirm your email address and validate your account (Fig 6). Pls note, unlike the domain validation, email validation is mandatory to log in and use your tenant account in StratosLive. So pls make sure to find the mail and validate your account, soon. If you did not receive the mail, check whether that ended up in the spam folder. If it is not even there, you might consider contacting WSO2 Support or the StratosLive forum.
