Creating users and groups

Cloud Cruiser provides the capability to create user groups that have access to specific data, and to create users associated with those user groups. Every user must belong to a group.

Creating user groups

Permission to view data for particular customers is given to user groups.

To create a user group

  1. Click Administration > Users.
  2. In the list of users, right-click and select Add a new group.
  3. In the Name field, enter the name of the group.
    For example, if you want a group for all users in Germany, enter Germany.
  4. In the Description field, enter a description for the group.
  5. In the Customers Allowed tree, specify what data can be viewed by users of this user group.
    Users will be able to view any data at the level selected or below it in the account structure. For example, if a user group has access to data in account structure HP|EMEA|999|DEU, users will be able to view data for customers HP|EMEA|999|DEU|00003, HP|EMEA|999|DEU|00021, and so on.

    If the Customers Allowed tree does not have the customer record needed for the group, you can create a new customer record to support that entry.

  6. Click Save.

Creating users

User records give individual users access to data. They specify the credentials (username and password) to login, an email address for the user, and the User Group to which the user is associated.

When creating accounts for external users, please send login details to the ASM rather than the person the account is created for. This will allow the ASM to check the account has the correct role associated to it (generally the "Report Guest" role).

To create a user

  1. Click Administration > Users.
  2. Right-click a user group, and select Add new <groupName> user.
  3. In the detail pane, set the following fields for the new user:




    The unique identifier for this user. The user will log into the system with this ID.

    Full Name The user's full name.
    Email The user's email address.
    Group The group to which the user is assigned.

    The user’s password to log into the system. If you leave this blank, the user's password is set to the default password specified in Administration > Configuration > General > System.


    The roles to which the user is assigned. In general, most users will be Report Users or Report and Advanced Analytics users. You can select the following roles:

    • Admin: Can perform all administration functions. This includes launching batch jobs, configuring budgets and alerts, managing users, defining the account structure, and defining system configuration. This role also has the permissions granted by all other roles.
    • Advanced Analytics: Can run Cloud Cruiser Analytics reports, and will see these reports, not ad-hoc reports.
    • Customer Budget: Can view and edit customer budgets. Consider assigning this role and the Report User role together.
    • Post Usage Data: Can use the REST API to send usage data to Cloud Cruiser.
    • Report User: Can view reports and run the business intelligence tools.
    • Report Guest: Can run a limited set of reports (generally limited to usage reports for reseller end users)
  4. Click Save.
