Users and projects management console

First of all, create a new project and register users who will work thereon.

Note: For security reasons, we strongly recommend to use the administrator account for working in the user and project management console only. For working in the virtual data center management console, we recommend to only use additionally created accounts without administrator rights (see User manual).

On the cloud platform portal, click Enter in the top menu and then select Users and projects. In the opening new page, enter the account name and password received via email.

Users and projects

In the main menu, select Users section and click Add user. In the opening dialog window, fill in all the fields. User ID may only contain lowercase Latin letters, digits, and symbols “.”, “_” and “-“. Remember the user ID format:, where is the Company’s name specified during the registration on the cloud platform. We strongly recommend you to always specify user’s e-mail since it will be the e-mail for notifications on projects which the user participates in.


Then navigate to Projects section and click Add project. Project ID is used when operating API of the cloud platform. Project ID restrictions are the same as those imposed on User ID.

Click project ID link in the list to navigate to a detailed information page. Click Add user button to add a user to the project. Be sure to specify the role of this user in the project.

Role is a set of rights, or actions the user is permitted to perform with project objects. Example: The user may launch and stop instances but may not delete them.


The following role templates are defined by default in the system:

Role template Description
Cloud administrator Full set of rights to operate with instances and cloud object storage.
Storage administrator Full set of rights to operate with cloud object storage.
VM administrator Full set of rights to operate instances.

You may also create your own roles and use them in day-to-day work (see Roles section). To create your own roles, you need to understand the cloud platform API.

Once a user is added to the project, the user’s rights can be adjusted. To do this, just click user name in the user list of the selected project.
