This month we’ve refined the user experience for both brokers and end-customers. We’ve extended single sign-on (SSO) to more users and we’ve created new Azure billing functionality. We’ve also given organizations the ability to set up, schedule and run their own billing reports.
See below to view all of the changes our development team has been putting into action over the last few weeks.
SSO login at the organizational level and for branded resellers
Single sign-on (SSO) was initially set up at the broker level. We now support SSO for organizations and branded resellers.
vCloud: VDCS max value for RAM and CPU allocation have been increased
In VDCS menu for vCloud, the maximum values for RAM and CPU allocation were increased to cover customer requirements for greater capacity.
New API calls: Group your organizations and users to manage them more easily
New API calls have been introduced to enable a cloud broker to create and manage different groups in Cloudmore, including individual users and organizations.
Full details of the new API calls can be found under the UserGroups and OrganizationGroups in the swagger document that can be found here.
Microsoft Azure CSP: Support for reserved instances billing
We have created a new option on the Microsoft Azure billing report page called “Reserved Instances / One Time Billing.” This functionality has been developed in response to Microsoft’s introduction of reserved instances to allow customers to buy virtual machines (VMs) at a fixed price.
Brokers will be able to view, filter and export all one-time billing items in the Azure billing report, including VMs, licenses and any other one-time sales.
Organizations can now schedule and manage billing reports for all services
Organizations can now set up, schedule, run and e-mail billing reports for all of their services. This functionality was previously only available to resellers.
Our development team has also been stamping out bugs.
