Configure Spend Management Access
User Management provides extensive capabilities to define user data access for Spend Management in PyraCloud. It is possible to limit user access by Accounts or Custom Groups.
Users can limit access by choosing the “Spend Management Access” tab.
Give Users Full Access
Select “Full Access” to give users full access to all Spend Management data.
Limit User Access by Accounts
Choose “Accounts” to use existing Providers and Subscriptions to configure access. Click “Next” to define the access.
Choose whether the user will be able to access the following data:
- Any Account out of existing Providers
- Selected Cloud Accounts (Tenants)
- Selected Subscriptions
Save changes in order to make the changes effective.
Limit User Access by Custom Groups
Choose “Custom Groups’ to give user access only to selected groups. Click “Next” to define the access.
Choose the groups the user can access. Selecting a group (or a branch) will allow the user to see all resources assigned to that group, and all cloud spend data related to those resources.
Save your changes in order to make the changes effective.
Access User Procurement Settings
Choose the “Procurement” tab to open current user Procurement settings. You will see all the countries where the user can procure. Choose a country to see and manage permissions. You must own sufficient privileges to edit the permissions (some of them may appear read-only). The privileges may be different depending on the country.
Request Procurement Settings
Newly created users will not have Procurement Settings provided. Users need to be defined to transact through PyraCloud, therefore it may not be possible to enable some of the features for such users.
You can request for these users to be configured. First choose the “Procurement” tab and click on the “Request Procurement” option.
The Procurement Request form will be displayed. Fill in the information and confirm by clicking the “Request Procurement” option. The request will be processed by a SoftwareONE sales representative.

You can manage user access to folders existing in the Collaboration Site. Select “Collaboration Site” tab on user details page.
Selected folder access configuration will be immediately reflected in the Collaboration Site.
Enable and Disable User Access to PyraCloud
Control whether a selected user can access PyraCloud. Choose “Disable User” or “Enable User” to control access to the system.
Clicking on “Disable User” will mean they can no longer login.
