Barracuda Cloud Control

Scenario 2 - Customer Admin that Exists in the System

  • Last updated on


Important: If a Barracuda Partner account has access to a customer account where multi-factor authentication (MFA) is required, Partner users are required to set up and use MFA. For more information, refer to the Barracuda Campus article How to Set Up and Manage Multi-Factor Authentication in Barracuda Cloud Control.

In this example, the customer admin exists in the system. The partner sends a request to the customer admin to manage their account.

 Add the Customer Account

  2. Click the Home link in the left pane, and click Partner > Customer Accounts. Click Manage Customer Accounts.
  3. The Manage Customer Accounts page displays. 
  4. Click Add Customer in the left pane; the Add Customer Account dialog displays:

  5. Click on the newly added account, select the Partner Admin's Entitlements, and then click Add.
  6. The partner is added to the Partner Admins on Customer Account list in the right pane.

Understanding Entitlement Assignments

By default, your partner admin account has access to all customer entitlements which you can modify for each partner administrator when setting up partner administrator privileges. However, the customer can restrict the entitlements your partner account can manage on the Partner Administration > Manage Users page.

To modify entitlement restrictions,

  1. Log into Barracuda Cloud Control using your partner credentials.
  2. Click the Home link in the left pane, and click Partner > Customer Accounts. Then click Manage Customer Accounts.
  3. The Manage Customer Accounts page displays.
  4. In the Customer list, click the name of the account you want to modify.
  5. In the section on the right side of the page, click Edit; the Edit User Entitlements dialog box displays:
    edit_user_entitlements.png
  6. Set the entitlements as necessary, and then click Save.

If entitlements are restricted, they are dimmed in the display and cannot be selected when assigning entitlements on the customer’s account.
