Business Units

If you need to organize your backups for different parts of your organization, you can add business units underneath your organization in Cloutility.

Cloutility Dashboard

In the figure above, "Business Unit" has been added under the fictive company "Your Company AB". Adding business units can be done by clicking the Add-button in the top-left corner. Then you can click on the newly added business unit in the left panel to perform operations underneath the unit.

You may even add business units underneath other business units if you need a deeper hierarchy.

Access Control

A reason why one would want to declare a hierarchy of business units in Cloutility is the ability to limit access for units in the organization. You can create new user accounts underneath these units, as well as assign new roles. These users may then access consumption units only within their respective business units.

Try this out by clicking on Add in the top-left corner to add a new business unit. Set a name for the unit, and optionally an organization number and timezone. Once it has been added, click on it in the left panel. Thereafter, you will be operating in the context of the business unit. Click on the cogwheel in the top-right corner, and then on Users. Here you may add new user accounts that are limited only to this particular unit.
