With SpinPanel you can offer self-service license management to your end customers. If you want to enable one of your end customers to self-service their licenses, you need to:
- Enable self-servicing for your end customer
- Create a role for license management
- Assign a role with sufficient rights for license management
To enable self-service for one of your end customers, in SpinPanel, open Settings>Relationship settings. From the Relationship dropdown list, select the end customer for whom you want to enable self-servicing, then click on SpinPanel settings and then click the Edit-button. Switch the option Self-service to on.
Creating a role for license management
After you enabled self-service, you also need to assign a role to at least one user with your end customer, giving that user sufficient permissions to assign licenses. You can create a role that will only give permissions for license management.
To create a role, in the SpinPanel side menu, open Settings > Role management. As the role needs to be created for your end customer's organisation, make sure your end customer is selected inside the organisation dropdown in the top right hand corner.
Inside the Role management page, click the Add-button. Inside the New role side-pane, fill in a value for Role name, e.g. "License management", switch on the License management toggle and click the Save-button. Turning on this switch ensures that all permissions required for license management are turned on for the role.
Assigning a role for license management
Once you've created a role with sufficient permissions for license management, you must assign this role to one or more users of your end customer.
