OnApp reseller privileges


Reseller user created in OnApp should have default User privileges mentioned here, along with some extra permissions enabled:hypervisor_zones.list,template_sets.read,data_store_zones.list,network_zones.list , View OnApp version.

If you wish to limit any of those zones availability for certain reseller, please provide IDs of zones you wish to offer your resellers to use before creating your module.
I.e.: If you want your resellers and their customers to create VMs on hypervisor zone: "resellers" and "resellers_2" only, email us with hypervisor zone ids: ID1, ID2... (where ID is numeric ID of zone you wish to allow). This applies to each zone/set you wish to limit.
