For the majority of products, you can only view production systems in the Cloud Availability Center. Your viewable systems are tied to your customer number and accessed based on your S-user ID. If you are an administrator with multiple systems and have another S-user ID, use the other ID to access other systems that belong to a separate customer number (subsidiaries, different LOB, etc.). Contact an administrator in your company and request additional privileges. Also see question "What needs to be done to see my products and systems on the Cloud Availability Center?" above.
Cloud System Notification Subscriptions (CSNS) consolidates many existing cloud service-specific subscription options. In some of these tools, the S-user ID was not required for the creation of a subscription. These subscriptions were migrated to CSNS.
