In the platform, enterprises are cloud tenants, meaning they are groups of cloud users with their own logical resources. For more information, see Users (in the Walkthrough). For each tenant, you can assign access to infrastructure and resources.
Before you begin managing enterprises, we recommend that you do these steps:
To create a cloud tenant enterprise, do these steps:
Go to Users → Enterprises
Click the + add button
Abiquo will create the enterprise and filter to display only this enterprise. To display other enterprises, click the X beside the enterprise name in the filter box at the top of the Enterprises list.
After you have created the enterprise:
The name of the Enterprise
|Default scope||The default scope to assign to future users that administrators create in this tenant. When creating users, an administrator can assign the enterprise’s default scope, even if it is above their scope in a hierarchy. Generally you should set this to a low scope.|
|Require two factor authentication||To make two-factor authentication mandatory for all users of this enterprise, select this checkbox. Note that an administrator must configure it in the platform first. See Configure two factor authentication|
|Enable workflow||To enable workflow for this enterprise, mark this checkbox. Note that an administrator must configure it in the platform first. See Abiquo Workflow Feature|
|Reseller||Select this flag to mark the enterprise as a reseller|
|Key node||Select this flag to mark the enterprise as the key node of its default scope, for example, as the headquarters of an organization|
|Enterprise logo||A logo file for the enterprise in web format (PNG, JPEG, GIF). The size of the default logo is 150 x 37 pixels. This will override the default logo, which is set in Configuration View.|
|Default theme||A branding theme created for the enterprise. See Abiquo Branding Guide|
