Question: New iMac missing as a listed device...

A week ago I took delivery of a brand new iMac to replace my old one, and while iCloud is working perfectly syncing everything between my iMac and my iPhone X when I go to iCloud.com on Safari my iMac is not listed (sorry about the German, I use a German version of macOS 10.13.3):

But if I sign in to the official Apple ID site all 3 of my devices are correctly listed:

How can I get my iMac to appear as connected in iCloud.com and does it matter? I don´t suppose so as, like I said, everything´s snycing fine! I´m just curious as to why my iMac´s missing! Thanks for any help/suggestions! Ian.

Thanks for replying, Eric! No, I haven't signed out of iCloud and then back in again. I want to avoid doing so because I did it last year and got into a terrible mess. I lost my contacts, notes and calendars, and it took days to get everything working again. I must have done something stupid because I was new to iCloud and didn't really understand it. But I don't want to risk going through all that again!

Just a little update. Today I was in iCloud.com, and lo and behold my new iMac has appeared, as if by magic, in the list of devices! I certainly didn't do anything to make this happen. To paraphrase Winston Churchill, iCloud is sometimes like a mystery, wrapped up in an enigma inside a puzzle... 🙂
