Operators can perform various maintainance operations for their platforms. For maintenance of Landing Zones, please see Landing Zone Administration.
Administrators can inform users about platform specific events (updates, new features, service disruptions, etc.) by creating platform notifications:
- Platforms: Select the platforms relevant to your notification so they can be shown on the affected platform's dashboards. Users can also subscribe to notifications by platform and subscribed users will receive new notifications via email.
- Message: The message that will be shown to all users. You can enter valid HTML in this field (except for the
<p>tag). This is useful for e.g. supplying links to support pages.
- Severity: The type of message (info, warning, critical).
- Info: for new features, upcoming services updates and general information that is not expected to disrupt platform operation
- Warning: best used to inform about partial platform outages or problems that may occur for some users
- Critical: appropriate in case of complete platform failures or impending platform downtimes
- Show From: The earliest time the message will be shown. You can use this to create messages that will only be shown on at a later date.
- Show Until: After this time the message will no longer be displayed.
At the bottom of the screen, a preview is shown. This can give you an idea of how the message is presented to your end-users.
Restrict Platform Access
Access to a specific platform can be restricted in the Administration Area via "Platforms" -> "Platform Instances". This feature is helpful when a new meshPlatform shall be integrated, but initially only be visible to a few customers for integration testing.
To restrict the meshPlatform, go to the meshPlatform edit screen and search for the customers the platform shall be restricted to. Add these customers via the + button.
Manage Quota Definitions
In order to provide quotas to meshTenants, the available quotas have to be defined first. A
Quota Key that must match the quota key in the platform, can be defined. Additionally a speaking name for the Quota that is shown in meshPanel as well as a description and a unit can be defined. Min and Max values can also be set to restrict the quotas to a certain maximum or minimum. An Auto Approval Threshold can also be defined. It can be set to 0, if no auto-approval of quota requests shall be applied.
Removing Quotas If you want to remove quotas from a platform just click the "-" button on the right side of the table. If removed in the Platform Quota Definition, quotas will be removed from the Landing Zones and tenants belonging to the platform as well. The removal of quotas from the meshTenants will happen during next replication.
Currently only OpenShift is supported for Quota Management
