User account management

E-mail addresses

vpsAdmin allows users to set one primary e-mail address belonging to the account owner – a member of our association. This address must be set and can only be a single address. In addition to the primary e-mail address, you can set different addresses for certain contact roles, such as an accountant or system administrator. These settings can be changed in user profile details (vpsAdmin → Edit profile)

For example, the account manager receives e-mails about:

  • payment notification,
  • suspension/activation of the membership,
  • accepted payments.

The system administrator receives e-mails about:

  • VPS status changes,
  • VPS configuration changes,
  • backup downloads,
  • VPS migrations.

Advanced settings

Should contact roles not be enough or if don't wish to receive certain e-mails, there is an advanced settings form (vpsAdmin → Edit profile → Advanced e-mail configuration). You can choose different e-mail addresses for specific mail templates or disable receiving of some mails altogether.

Authentication tokens

Users can authenticate in vpsAdmin using HTTP basic or authentication tokens. The latter can be seen and managed from vpsAdmin (vpsAdmin → Edit profile → Authentication tokens).

You can see a list of active authentication tokens, their lifetime and who created them. This list is useful when you have multiple long-lived tokens for various client applications.

The web UI itself uses authentication tokens. You can create tokens using CLI or any client library and label them, so you'll recognize them in the future.

Session log

vpsAdmin logs all user sessions and remembers what actions were performed (vpsAdmin → Edit profile → Session log).

You can see when the session started, ended, what authentication method was used, IP addresses, client idenfitication and a list of executed actions in a particular session.
