Support Portal FAQs

 

What is an account?

An account represents a company.  An account contains assets, members, and groups.

 

How do I create an account?

The account is created with the first person who registers as a user for that account.  Refer to How to Create Your Customer Support Portal User Account

 

What is a member?

There are two types of members; an account member or a group member.  A user may be a member to one or more accounts and groups.  A user can be a group member without being an account member.

 

What is an asset?

An asset is a device, spare or VM-Series Auth-Code.  Assets belong to an account.

 

What is a group?

A group (formerly known as a sub-account) provides a way for group members to privately manage assets.  Assets assigned to groups are only viewable by the group members or account super users.

 

When is a group needed?

Groups are optional.  A group may be appropriate when there is a need to:

  • hide assets from other account members
  • segregate assets within the account
  • allow external users to manage assets without giving them access to the account

 

What is a device tag?

A device tag (formerly known as a device group) is a unique word/term used to categorize devices in an account.

 

How many Super Users are allowed?

There is no limit to the number of super users in an account.
