CLOUDMORE 2.23 RELEASE NOTES
by Mark Adams, on August 29, 2017
Date: 7 July 2017
What’s new in this release?
Outbound provisioning API for services
REST API has been added as a provisioning type for custom services and seller services. The REST API provisioning is in addition to email provisioning. REST API provisioning enables and facilities an automated flow where a custom service can be automatically provisioned without any manual steps. When a service is added to an organization or a subscription is created or altered, an API call is sent out to a predefined URL. The API call is based on REST and follows a Cloudmore's pre-defined standard. For more information on the Service API, please contact your local sales representative.
Billing start date
We have added a billing start date for all organizations. The billing start date prevents an organizational administrator from seeing data on billing reports before the billing start date. Setting a billing start date is useful when importing customers with existing subscriptions where historical billing information should be hidden. By default, the billing start date is the same as the organization create date. The billing start date can be set from the organization properties. The billing start date is not applied to reports at reseller level.
Microsoft O365 CSP Direct – Change subscription price
The price for a Microsoft O365 CSP Direct subscription is set when a subscription (typically 12 months) is created or renewed. The reseller can now adjust the price for an imported subscription to the correct price for the customer for historical and future billing reports. This feature can be found on the Microsoft O365 CSP Direct subscription page for an organization. In the list, there is a new button to edit the sales price. There is also an option to adjust prices for all organizations.
Rather than selecting a service plan, Cloudmore customers now have a choice of add-ons. Find the add-ons page under the reseller menu item. Current add-ons are:
- Branded login page with custom URL
- Pre-integrated service – Microsoft CSP
- Cloudmore API
- Service provisioning API
