- 1 Minute to read
The CTERA Portal can be divided into tenants, known as virtual portals, each of which manages a subset of devices and CTERA Portal user accounts. The following types of virtual portal are supported:
- Team portal
This type of portal is designed for the needs of a company or team with multiple members, and as such does not include support for reseller-oriented features. The users in the portal are the team members.
Team portals are managed by team administrators, who are team members with the Administrator role.
- Reseller portal
This type of portal includes support for reseller-oriented features such as add-ons, plans, vouchers, and self-registration. The end users in the portal are the reseller's subscribers.
Reseller portals are managed by staff administrators.
This chapter explains how to add, edit, and delete virtual portals, as well as log in to any virtual portal and manage its contents.
