Configuring External Panel

Access to the external panel for working with the cloud resources can be created for any project of the Cloud platform. You can provide individual users or company’s teams with space to work in the cloud and set resource consumption limits for them in the form of project quotas.

You can provide external access to the Control panel using the default link of the project_number.selvpc.ru format or by configuring access to the address on your vpc.mydomain.com domain.

The login page can be customized. This feature may be interesting for resellers who want to apply their own corporate style and logo to projects.

You need to add users to the project to work through the external panel. To create a user, go to the All users section of the Control panel. Then select Add to project in the (⋮) context menu of the required user.

The login link in the 123456.selvpc.ru format can be found in the Settings section of the project in the External panel block. To access the external panel, you need to enter your username and password.

Follow these steps to create a link on a domain in the vpc.mydomain.com format:

  1. On your domain registrar’s site, open domain settings for the subdomain you want to connect to the Control panel.
  2. Create a new CNAME entry for third-level domain names in the following format:

     vpc.mydomain.com CNAME project_number.selvpc.ru

    Where: mydomain.com is the selected domain name; project_number.selvpc.ru is the link to the external panel.

    Please note that only the third-level domain names can be used for external links, so please do not forget to add an identifier or other name.

  3. Enter the NS server for entries. It may take 48 hours to update the DNS.

  4. Go to the Settings subsection of the project in the Control panel.

  5. Write the registrar’s entry in the CNAME field in the vpc.mydomain.com format.

The original external link will change to vpc.mydomain.com. You will need to enter your username and password to enter the panel.
