Payara Cloud enables you to have multiple users accessing your subscription. To facilitate this, you invite users to your subscription via email. Upon receiving the invitation, they can register for a new Payara Cloud account or use their existing one to access the subscription.
In Payara Cloud, users can have different roles, each with its own set of permissions:
- Billing Manager
Users with this role have access to all billing and payment information related to the subscription. They can also invite new users to the subscription and modify their roles, though they may not have permissions to deploy applications to Payara Cloud.
Administrators possess full permissions to deploy and configure applications on Payara Cloud. They can also invite new users to the subscription and modify their roles.
- Billing Manager with Administrative Privileges
This role combines the privileges of both the Billing Manager and Administrator roles, providing all available permissions. When you sign up for Payara Cloud, this is the default role assigned to your subscription.
Members have limited access to the subscription’s applications; specifically, they cannot create, delete, or modify namespaces.
User management activities are performed in the Manage Users section.
Click Add User to begin.
Enter their email address and select the role they should have in the subscription once they accept it. The option to grant Administrative privileges to a Billing Manager is only available when the Billing Manager role is selected. Only a Billing Manager can grant or remove Billing Manager roles in the subscription.
Click Add User to send an invitation email to the provided email address. The user’s email will appear in the list with a status of Pending.
Following the link Signup to Payara Cloud will lead to the signup prompt.
The email used for registration does not need to match the email to which the invitation was sent. Users can also choose to use their existing Google or GitHub account instead ❷. Signup will fail if the user already has an account. In such a case, they need to select "Already have an account? Log in" ❶.
Afterward, their invitation is accepted.
Go To Subscription will take them to the Subscription Overview.
If the invited user misses the invitation email, the menu action Resend Invite allows for resending the email and also changing the email address of the user being invited.
Clicking Copy Invitation Link will bring you to a page that lists the invitation link the user should follow. With that, you can transfer the link by other means, i.e., instant message. The invitation link is for single use only; no further verification is performed when visiting it, so ensure no unauthorized actors obtain it. Specifically, Payara Cloud Support will never ask you for the invitation link.
Click Edit User to view the properties of the respective user of this subscription.
On this screen, you can change the user’s role. Confirm the updates by clicking Update User.
When updating, the requirements for role staffing need to be maintained; otherwise, the update will fail. Only a Billing Manager can grant or remove Billing Manager roles in the subscription.
New roles will take effect the next time the user logs in.
By un-clicking the checkbox Active, the user will become Inactive. An inactive user has no permissions in the subscription. For them, the effect is the same as if they were removed, however, it’s possible to restore their permissions by re-enabling Active without needing to invite the user again.
To completely remove a user, select the Remove User option from the action menu for the respective user.
|This action cannot be undone. The user will need to be invited again to regain access to the subscription. To temporarily remove a user, consider disabling the user instead.|
Confirmation is required to complete the removal:
Upon confirmation, the user will be removed from the subscription, and their access will be revoked. They will need to be re-invited to regain access to the subscription.
