Article Summary

End users can request to use storage from the team CTERA Portal quota, from the CTERA Portal administrator, instead of from their own quota.

You can specify that requests from specific groups, or even from all users, can only be handled by specific administrators.

Note

The user can only request a team project if Allow users to request team projects with independent quota is enabled in the virtual portal settings for the team portal, described in Team Portal Settings.
By default, portal administrators defined as Read/Write Administrators with the Manage Cloud Folders role checked and can accept or reject the request, as described in Customizing Administrator Roles.

For details of an end user requesting a team project, see Collaborating on Content Without Using Your Storage Quota (Team Projects).
