Account personal data¶
The account subsection shows your current data and allows you to edit them or add a new email.
To authenticate and authorize requests for a project build with the UpdateHub you must have a security credential in the form of an application access key. Each access key is specific to your user and is used to upload the packages or any other external integration which needs to access the UpdateHub API.
In this section all access keys for your account will be listed.
Requesting a access key¶
If you need to, you can create a new one by clicking the + Request Access Key button. Choose a name for the key and select the API Key owner as Me or a Organization.
Once the access key is created a dialog will appear to show the security credentials.
Save your keys
On the moment that this window is closed the keys will not be shown again and if you lose them you must revoke the Access Key and generate a new one.
In addition to the Access Key created for the user to work individually, the UpdateHub grants the possibility of more than one user to have access to the same Product throught of an Organization.
Creating an Organization¶
Create an Organization is simple, as you just need to click on the + Create Organization button and select a name for it. You will be automatically be set as Owner. After the creation of an Organization invitations for new members can be easily sent. The invite must contain the user's e-mail and the level of access allowed to him.
There are three users access levels inside the Organization, each one with a particular set of permissions:
- Owner - has all the permissions to normally create products, start rollouts and invite other members for the Organization
- Release Manager - limited to manage the rollouts
- Developer - has the permission to only create the packages
Each Organization will display a list with all of its members, showing their name, e-mail address, access level of permission, and a list with all the pending invites waiting to be answered.
More about the Billing¶
The UpdateHub Cloud allows the registration of up to 5 devices in your account without any type of charge. Above this number, the server will not allow more devices to be registered in this account, which can generate an error when a device configured with UpdateHub support tries to access the server.
To enable the support for more devices, you need to upgrade your account, accessing the Unlock Unlimited Usage at Billing and enter the requested data.
The billing is split upon:
- My usage - about the products that the owner is the user of the account, that is, they were created by this account with the Owner as Me.
- My organizations - that is generated by products that belong to an organization created by the account user. Billing for an organization is generated in the Owner account for that organization, and each organization generates a separate billing.
