As Centrestack admin, can manage self hosted Centrestack license and assign licenses to self hosted Centrestack cluster from partner portal.
After licenses are assigned, can login the self hosted Centrestack as the cluster admin and check the licenses assigned to the cluster. As the cluster admin, can manage license assigned to each tenant too.
- To check the license assigned to the cluster
As cluster admin on web portal, click the 'Cluster Info' icon (the circle with an i in the middle), to open the Cluster Info. It shows the cluster ID, the number of licenses assigned to the cluster and how many licenses are already assigned. The number of licenses already assigned is greater than or equals to the number of users created under all tenants.
- Check licenses assigned to each tenant
When visit Tenant Manager, can check how many users already created under all tenants. Can also check the number of licenses assigned to each tenant. Here, click 'Manage Tenant', to adjust the licenses for each tenant.
- Adjust tenant license
When edit a tenant, click the 3 vertical dots on top, to open the menu and select 'Tenant Plan'. Here, can adjust the tenant's user and storage plan. To add more licenses to the tenant, need to make sure the cluster still has free licenses.
- Allow tenant license to auto grow
As cluster admin, edit a tenant and click the 3 vertical dots on top and select 'Access Control'. Here, under Access Control, can enable 'Allow tenant to increase the user plan automatically'.
If the auto grow is not enabled and the tenant runs out of licenses, adding a new user will fail.
Once enabled the tenant auto grow, if the tenant is running out of licenses, adding new users will automatically assign more licenses to the tenant, from available licenses under the cluster. If the cluster doesn't have license available and the cluster license auto grow is disabled on the partner portal, the user creation will fail.
If the cluster doesn't have free licenses and the cluster license auto grow is enabled on the partner portal, adding new user will order extra licenses on the partner portal, assign the new licenses to the cluster, and assign them to the tenant automatically. Then it will create the new user.
