OnApp provides very fine control over cloud users and what they're allowed to do. You can set up as many different types of users as you need, and customize their access to cloud resources and Control Panel functions as required.
For example, standard, VIP and reseller users can have different capabilities and resource limits. You might provide basic cloud management functionality to L1 support staff (e.g. reboot virtual servers but not destroy them) while your L3 admins have full rights. Your development teams will probably need to deploy test VSs in the cloud just as a customer would, only without being charged for them. Meanwhile, your billing staff need a "billing only" view with no access to customer resources.
This fine control is enabled by a combination of user accounts, roles, permissions and billing plans.

vCloud Director Users

Users with the following roles can view users of their user group :

  • vCloud Catalog Author

  • vCloud vApp Author

  • vCloud vApp User

  • vCloud Organization Administrator

  • vCloud Console Access Only


Users with the vCloud Organization Administrator role can also manage users within their user group. The following user related actions are available for users with the vCloud Organization Administrator role :

The creation process will add a user both to vCloud Director and OnApp. The user creation form is standard for OnApp, the fields that will synchronize user data with vCloud Director are: Login,PasswordUser RoleUser GroupFirst and Last Name, and Email. After you add a user, the change will be synchronized to vCloud Director. When you assign the vCloud Director user that you add in OnApp to an Organisation (user group), you define the resources the new user will have access to.
