Configuration of the Cost Perimeters of Your Users

N.B. : The cost perimeters rely on the tag, cost partition and cost allocation unit concepts of Teevity. Read more about them here.

Teevity lets you define a cost perimeter for your users so you can control what data they can access.

There are two ways of configuring cost perimeters:

  1. on a per user basis which is going to be either:
    • static, i.e. you define one or several cost allocation unit(s) that the user can access . Example: "environment production for application A" or "application A and its frontend component"
    • dynamic i.e. you give access to an entire subset of a cost partition. Example: in the cost partition "Business Unit/Application", you can choose a Business Unit X so the user has access to all existing (and future) applications defined inside this business unit.
  2. a company-wide dynamic definition which will use the user attributes defined manually or via an external identity provider integration (SAML, LADP) to set the cost perimeter. To enable this feature for your Teevity account, please contact our support team.

The cost perimeter will define the cost sources that the users are going to see on their dashboards and also the visibility of the cost allocation units in the reports if you so choose.
