Subscription Management setup

Because Subscription Management is active for all production instances by default, you do not need to activate a plugin. To set up Subscription Management, you assign the usage_admin role to the users who will administer subscriptions. The admins allocate users to appropriate subscriptions, monitor usage of applications (both by subscribed users and by users who are not subscribed), and update subscription levels as needed.

What to do

Assign the Usage Admins

Before you (the admin user) do anything else, assign the usage_admin role to the persons who will manage subscriptions for your organization.

Admin responsibilities and activities are described in Allocating users to a Per-User subscription and Monitoring how subscriptions are allocated.

See View your subscription applications and allocation levels.

If your organization purchased Per-User subscriptions, the usage_admin allocates users
Note: You perform this task only for Per-User subscriptions. Your instance auto-allocates and reports on monthly usage for all other subscription types.

With a Per-User subscription, a specified number of users is entitled to use the application. You perform the following tasks:

  • Build user sets.
  • Allocate users to appropriate subscriptions.
  • Monitor whether you have allocated the right number of users.
  • Monitor and manage how users are allocated.

See Allocating users to a Per-User subscription.
