Creating Azure for Partner Center Customers

HPE FC Azure customers are no different than any other customers in Cloud Cruiser with the exception that they include a Budget and one or more Contacts.  These additions are used to support the Azure-specific budgeting and alerts.

Creating an Azure for Partner Center Customer

Follow the instructions in the To create a customer level customer record section at Creating Customers.

Setting an Azure for Partner Center Customer Rate Plan

Azure for Partner Center Rate Plans are created automatically in the customer-specific Workbooks; therefore, at least one day's data has to be published for the Rate Plan to be available to be chosen.

The Rate Plan must be selected prior to charging any data.

Before You Begin

Ensure that the Rate Plan exists with the format <Customer ID>-<Customer Name> (e.g., 99990-AzureTestCustomer).  It is created when the first day's data for that customer is published to the Cloud Cruiser database.

Selecting the Rate Plan

  1. Click Financial > Customers.
  2. Click the desired customer from the list.
  3. Set the Rate Plan to the corresponding option with the format <Customer ID>-<Customer Name> (e.g., 99990-AzureTestCustomer).
  4. Click Save to save your changes to the customer.

Creating an Azure for Partner Center Budget

Although not currently utilized, the infrastructure for Azure budgets as well as a means of notifying customer contacts was implemented.  This and the contacts section that follows address how to configure this feature.

  1. Click Financial > Customers
    A list shows all customer records.
  2. Click the desired customer from the list
    The corresponding customer's details displays in the pane.
  3. Click the Budget tab
    The budget displays in the pane.
  4. Select the desired Budget Year
  5. For each Period 1 through Period 12, set the desired monthly budget.

Period number corresponds to month number (i.e., 1 for January, 2 for February, etc.).

  1. Uncheck Use Standard Alert, Use Projected Alert, and Use Default Values

This is done to prevent standard budget alerts from being sent as those will include charges for services other than Azure, which isn't desired.
