How do I set up Cloudmore admin accounts for my internal staff?

Each Cloudmore administrator should have their own unique login. By setting this up correctly, you can see what changes have been made by which user in the event log, making it much easier to keep a valid audit trail.

Do not use shared logins such as support@ or sales@. If you use 2-factor authentication for an administrator login, communications are sent to the administrator's contact details.

Follow the instructions below to learn how to add and manage administrator accounts.   

There are three different ways to add administrators: - 
1 - Bulk import a .CSV / .XML or .XMS file.
2 - Manually create multiple administrators.
3 - Add individually (recommended for single additions only). 

Sections 45, & 6 explain how to manage existing administrators.

Each administrator can be set up with a different role. See this document for further details: Assign Admin roles and permissions.

Note:- The minimum password length is eight (8) characters. The password must contain uppercase and lowercase characters, numbers, and non-word characters. The password cannot contain parts of the user's account name or parts of the user's full name.

1. Bulk import a .CSV / .XML or .XMS file

Log into Cloudmore. Navigate to your Broker menu, then click on Broker, then Administrators.

3.2 Cloudmore Roles Matrix

Role in Cloudmore

What they can do

Super Admin

This role allows the user to have full rights to all menu options in the Cloudmore menu at both Broker and Organization platform levels

Global Admin

This role is similar to Super Admin but cannot change any of the Broker properties, security settings, branding or MS Azure AD Sync

GlobalView Only Admin

This role is similar to the Global Admin role and gives the user view-only access to the platform only, with no administration rights.

Global Support Admin

This role is to assist organizations. The role has a limited view but cannot make any changes to the broker level but has full control at the organization level with the exception of setting General Discount.

Global Billing Admin

This is a restricted role allowing the user to only administer the billing areas of the platform at the Service Provider level.

The user can:

  • view and export billing reports 
  • view and edit pricelists
  • view reports 
  • view Cloudmore invoices
  • set general discount
  • submit consumption data
  • add manual billing lines

Key Account Manager

This role is intended for sales and support staff who are responsible for a subset of customers. This role provides full access at the Organization level to assigned organization records only.

The user can:

  • carry out subscription adds, moves, and changes on behalf of customers
  • configure approvals process settings
  • create and send quotes
  • view and edit pricelists
  • view reports
  • view and export billing reports at the org level

The user cannot:

  • View unassigned org records
  • Access Service provider platform level

Key Account View Only Manager

The role is the same as the Key Account Manager but users can only view pages with no administrative capabilities

Limited Key Account Manager

This role has the same permissions as the Key account manager role except that it is restricted so that users cannot configure approvals process settings

Sales Agent

This role is designed to enable you to provide access at the broker level to affiliates outside of your company so that they can manage multiple organizations in Cloudmore.

The Sales Agent role is similar to the Key Account Manager role. You can assign organization groups to a specific admin or admins. The big difference with the sales agent role is that the admin can’t see any cost prices or margins. Only the sales price is visible to the admin in the price list and on subscription selection screens. The sales agent also has access to a billing report where they can view the billing details for all of their assigned organizations, but again, only the sales price is displayed.
