The Dashboard supports the ability to access multiple accounts. Select available accounts from the pull-down menu in the upper right-hand corner of the Dashboard.Settings > Account Settings > Show
The Preferences tab lists the preferences of the RightScale account you are currently viewing. This tab is only visible to users with 'admin' role privileges in the account.
The Clouds tab lists the cloud infrastructures that are currently enabled on the selected RightScale account. You can also enable other public clouds or add a private cloud. You must have 'admin' role privileges in order to create/delete a cloud account. Before you delete a cloud account from RightScale, be sure you understand its ramifications.
The Users tab lists all of the users that have access to the RightScale account, as well as their associated permissions (roles). Each user will be able to select the account from the dropdown menu in the upper right. A change to a user's roles will take effect immediately. You can either delete a user or edit their permissions. Be sure to choose your users and their permissions wisely since any cloud related activity will use the account's cloud (AWS) credentials. See the Invitations tab to invite additional users to your account.
The Account Groups tab shows a list of (Account Group) memberships. When an 'admin' user in the current RightScale account accepts an invitation to an Account Group, the account becomes a member of that group and instantly gains access to all of the shared RightScripts, ServerTemplates, MCIs, and Macros within that collection. Shared components are published by other RightScale accounts. Access to the shared components can be changed at any time at the discretion of the publisher. However, once a shared component is imported/subscribed to, it will remain in the RightScale account's local collection even though a publisher may later deprecate it from the Account Group. Components that have been shared with this RightScale account can be found in the appropriate collection of the Library by clicking the "Shared" text link.
With Authorization Logging enabled, you can send authentication events through Amazon SNS each time a RightScale user authenticates against the RightScale Dashboard or API. Amazon's Simple Notification Services enables applications, end-users, and devices to instantly send and receive notifications from the cloud. The purpose of this tutorial is to show RightScale account managers how to monitor authentication events of RightScale's Dashboard and API and have those events sent to an SQS queue that is managed in RightScale.
Edit - When you edit authentication logging, you can ???enable??? or ???disable??? this feature. By default, this feature is ???disabled.???
Status - Specified whether or not the service is enabled or disabled.
The Server Login Control feature allows you to use a private SSH Key Pair instead of using your cloud SSH keys for shell access. SSH Key Pairs are unique for each user and are used across all RightScale accounts. By default, RightScale manages a user's public and private keys. But if you would like all users in an account to manage their own key pair for security reasons, it is possible to make this a requirement before a user can SSH into a server. This would essentially disable RightScale from managing an SSH Key Pair for users of an account.Settings > Account Settings > SSH
The Access Control section lets you specify the range of IP addresses that can login to RightScale or from which users or programs can access RightScale API endpoints. This feature can be used by account administrators to enable access to RightScale through a company's IP address. Fields
The Plan tab lists your current RightScale plan type and the name of the Master account, if applicable. If you wish to upgrade your plan, please contact us.Settings > Account Settings > Show > Plan tab
The API Credentials tab displays your OAuth API information and allows you to enable or disable this feature to generate a token or revoke a token.
The Info tab shows general information about the RightScale account you're currently viewing, including your account type (direct, sub-account, etc.) and the owner (based on the email address that was used to initially create the RightScale account).
You can also change ownership of a RightScale account. For example, you might want to associate a different email address with a RightScale account so that email notifications that are sent from RightScale when instances become available are sent to a different email address(Preferences tab). For example, you might want to create an alias that sends such notifications to all of your system administrators. (e.g. firstname.lastname@example.org)Settings > Account Settings > Show > Info tab
The Administered Clouds tab lists the private clouds that have been registered with this RightScale account.
Register Your Private Cloud The administrator of the private cloud should be the person who registers the cloud with RightScale. Only an 'admin' user of a RightScale account will be able to register a private cloud. Once a private cloud has been registered with RightScale, you can grant other RightScale accounts access to use your private cloud by giving them a Cloud Token, which they can use for authentication purposes when add a private cloud to their account.Settings > Account Settings > Administered Clouds tab
The Invitations tab shows any pending Invitations you have sent out. If you have 'admin' role privileges of the RightScale account, you can send account invitations to other users. When you send an email invitation, you must use the same email address that is associated with a user's RightScale account. If a user has not signed up for a RightScale account, he/she must sign up using the same email address in order to accept (activate) the invitation. You can also designate the desired permissions (roles) that the user will have on your account (ec2actor, ec2observer, etc.). Both the sender and the recipient will receive the email invitation. Email invitations will be sent from "email@example.com" so they may get stuck in an email spam folder. Invitations will expire after six days. You can invite as many users to your account as long as you grant them 'admin' role privileges. However, there are limits to how many non-admin users you can invite to your account based on your plan type. (Website/Grid/ISV: 5, Enterprise: unlimited)
Contact us to inquire about adjustments to these limits.
To learn more about Permanent and Temporary Invitations, see Invite Users to a RightScale Account to inquire about adjustments to these limits.Settings > Account Settings > Show > Invitations tab
The Server Defaults tab lists the cloud components that are available for configuring as default settings for servers in your account. These defaults can also be set at the deployment level. When setting defaults at the deployment level, you can inherit account defaults.
