Members, Groups and Projects

The ScaleX Enterprise Portal provides resources for administrators to manage and organize their members.

The general concept of Members, Groups and Projects is:

  • Members are assigned to Groups
  • Groups are assigned to Projects
  • Budgets are assigned to Projects
  • Budget limits can also be set per Member
  • Projects contain jobs

Here is an example:

Team Management Example

Let's assume that a company has two departments - Engineering and Reseach. Engineering team has 12 Members and Research team has 6 Members. 6 Members of the Engineering team are working on a project, Project A. This project has a set budget amount. Similarly, 6 Members of Engineering team and 6 Members of Research team are working together on Project B, which has a set budget amount. Figure below shows that organization flow chart.
Team Management

In this case, the Company Admin must do the following on the Rescale Company Admin page:

The Admin needs to create three Groups

  • Group 1 with 6 Members of the Engineering team that are currently not working on Project A or Project B
  • Group 2 with 6 Members of the Engineering team that are working on Project B
  • Group 3 with 6 Members of the Research team that are working on Project A and Project B

Groups 1

Groups 2

Create Project A

  • Assign Group 3 to Project A
  • Create Budget 1
  • Assign Budget 1 to Project A

Project A

Budget 1

Create Project B

  • Assign Group 2 and Group 3 to Project B
  • Create Budget 2
  • Assign Budget 2 to Project A
  • Allow autosharing option so that all members assigned to Project B can see jobs run under this Project

Project B

Budget 2
