Creates a portal, which can contain projects and dashboards. IoT SiteWise Monitor uses IAM Identity Center or IAM to authenticate portal users and manage user permissions.


Before you can sign in to a new portal, you must add at least one identity to that portal. For more information, see Adding or removing portal administrators in the IoT SiteWise User Guide .
