User Profiles

Every tenant is required to complete the User Profile to use the Usage and Billing services. Once the tenant completes the User Profile a user signup request is sent to the admin. The admin is notified with an email for every user request if the email settings are configured under ‘SETTINGS’ ‘EMAIL’ sub-tab in the admin portal of Usage and Billing solution. The admin can either approve or reject the request of the tenant after viewing the profile. Upon processing the request, a notification email is sent to the tenant notifying the signup request status. Only the tenants whose request has been approved can use the services provided by the Usage and Billing solution.

If the Payment gateway integration feature (Licensed Feature) is enabled, then the tenant is required to choose the payment method either ‘Offline’ or ‘Credit Card’ before completing the user profile. A payment profile is required for the tenant who choose their payment method as credit card. To complete the payment profile, the Usage and Billing solution redirects the tenant to ‘CyberSource’ web page where the tenant user is required to specify their credit card details. Only when the payment profile is completed a user signup request is sent to the admin for approval. User signup request of credit card users can be auto-approved by checking ‘Auto Approve Credit Card Customer's Signup Request?’ check-box under ‘USER PROFILE’ ‘NOTIFICATIONS’ sub-tab tab in the admin portal of Usage and Billing solution.

Note: User Profile is a licensed feature and is available for version higher than v 1.8.1.1 of Usage and Billing.
