Setting Up

Last updated 6 months ago

You have just been given access to your Clusterone VPC or on-premise installation. As the administrator, you have full access to the administration and monitoring dashboard of Clusterone.

Overview of the administration dashboard

Your Clusterone installation lives at a URL usually in the form https://company.clusterone.com. The administration dashboard is accessible through https://company.clusterone.com/admin.

The administration dashboard is broken down in 4 main sections (you might see additional sections depending on your configuration).

  • Profiles: your users and their permissions level

  • Projects: Code Repositories and Datasets

  • Jobs: Instance types, job runs, and containers available on Clusterone

  • Payments: Compute Quotas of your users

As you get onboarded on Clusterone, there are a few steps you may want to learn about:

  1. Inviting Users

  2. Managing User Accounts

  3. Setting up Compute Quotas

  4. Defining Additional Instance Types

Inviting Users

Depending on your configuration, Clusterone comes with open or restricted registration (contact your account manager if you are in doubt). Regardless, system administrators can manually invite other users and manage their accounts through the administration dashboard.

To invite a user, navigate to the Profiles / User Profiles section. You will see a list of all your users, as well as actions you can perform on them - we will cover that in the next section.

To invite a new users

  • click on "Add User Profile"

  • select a valid username (note that no special characters are allowed except " _ ")

  • select a valid email address (often restricted to your company domain)

  • pick a temporary password for your user

You can then hit Save, and your user will receive an invitation email.

Managing User Accounts

The User Profiles page lists all your users, their compute usage, and statistics about their activity. It also enables you to

  • Activate newly registered Users

  • Delete Users and all their Projects and Datasets

  • Creating an AWS account or GCP account for a user (provided your installation is linked to a cloud account)

When navigating to a username, you have access to a few functions.

Each user can have several data source and source control providers linked to their account. Although this is setup by the users themselves through Matrix, the main Clusterone GUI, administrators can view and control access tokens from this dashboard. This can be useful especially when users are encountering issues with accessing their code or setting up data sources. It can also be used to connect a user to a specific S3 account.

Finally, use the Permissions section to grant administrator access to users.

  • Active users is the default, basic access that all users get. Unchek this to prevent a user to access the system but keep their account alive, eg. when you want to temporarily suspend someone from accessing Clusterone.

  • Staff status enbales the account to access the admin dashboard, with their exact permissions manually defined

  • Superuser status is the overall admin status, with all permissions (i.e. you)
