Excerpt


Note
titleChanges to scopes from Abiquo 4.0
  • Now administrators assign scopes to Abiquo users. In previous versions, administrators assigned scopes to Abiquo roles and the global scope was the default
    • During the upgrade process to version 4.0, Abiquo assigns role scopes to users
  • All enterprises must now have a default scope for creating users
  • Administrators can now create optional hierarchies of scopes and share resources, such as templates and specs, with tenants at lower levels of their hierarchies


Scope concepts

Scope is an access list that contains a list of resources (enterprises and/or datacenters) to allow access.

You can use scopes to:

  1. Create restricted sets of resources for administrators
  2. Share resources with a group of tenants and an optional tenant hierarchy
  3. Create a tenant hierarchy for pricing, billing, and cost and usage aggregation, which is useful for resellers and large organizations

Pricing scopes

When a user creates a pricing model, the platform assigns the user's scope that applies to enterprises. Only users with the same enterprise scope can manage the pricing model. All users with pricing privileges can view the pricing model of their own enterprise. You cannot change the pricing scope or display it in the UI.
