Subject Re: Is there a way for the super tenant to subscribe a tenant to a service (on behalf of the tenant user)
Date Mon, 18 Aug 2014 08:36:13 GMT
I dont agree. Following are my reasons:

1. At the moment only a tenant can subscribe to a service. This has to be
done by signing in to the Stratos manager UI or invoking a rest API. But,
Apache Stratos is a PaaS framework. So, if someone wants to setup a PaaS
with Stratos, he should be able to provision services for tenants without
the tenant needing to do it by themselves. For example, if I decide to
setup something like AWS, I will create my own UI. In such an application,
I would not want to expose terms such as tenants, subscription, topology
etc. to the users and I might want to do it on behalf of them. At the
moment, I cannot subscribe a tenant user to a service without knowing
his/her credentials. Isn't this a valid requirement?

2. Also assume that I have the above mentioned AWS like application setup
and running. There are users subscribed to services. Assume this to be a
paid service and I want to terminate the subscription of users who has not
paid the bill on time. Do I have way to do this?

There are few other reasons such as the vendor having the control in a PaaS
etc.

WDYT?

Regards,
Amila.
