Working with resource date ranges

Table of contents

Cloud Cruiser includes the ability to specify different rates over different time periods. This is useful for changing rates in the future or for delivering a rate discount for some limited amount of time. These date ranges, called resource revisions, can vary for individual resources or rate plans.

Creating a resource revision
  1. Go to Billing > Services and select the resource you want to edit.
  2. Click Rates to open the Rates panel if it is not already open.
  3. Click the ‘+’ icon next to the Range menu to open the New Resource Revision dialog box.
  4. In the Start Date field, enter the date that this revision will become effective.
    You can type the date in mm/dd/yyyy format or click the calendar icon to choose a date.
    In this example, notice that there is an existing date range that runs from 01/01/2000 to 12/31/2999 by default, essentially covering “all dates.”
  5. Click OK.
    The new revision is created, starting on the date you entered and ending on the last possible day, 12/31/2999. The new revision has the same rate settings as the latest existing revision. Use the Range menu to see the complete list with their effective and end dates.
    Continuing the example, notice that the single date range that started on 01/01/2000 now ends on 10/17/2013, a day before the new revision begins. Revisions cannot overlap.

  6. With your new revision selected in the Range menu, set rates for it.
