The Account Management Portal enables Appspace cloud services Account Owners to directly access Appspace subscription and licensing information, without having to log in to the Appspace console, via our cloud-based site at https://account.appspace.com.
You only need your Appspace cloud services Account Owner credentials to log in.
The Account Management Portal also allows you to license Appspace on-prem servers, and define Device ID and Premium User ID allocations, based on your subscription plans.
The following illustrates the layout and interface of the Account Management Portal.
The Overview tab displays the company name and registration number, billing contact information, and plan information. The PLAN INFORMATION section displays your subscription type, subscription validity dates, and the number of IDs purchased with your plan, as well as storage and bandwidth information.
Further below, the User licenses, Device ID and licenses, Resource Usage comprising of both cloud and on-premise storage and bandwidth usages are displayed in a summarized table format, which is updated according to current usage statistics.
The License Management tab consolidates subscription and license management for on-prem and private cloud users. Here, users can view detailed information for each of their Appspace deployments, displayed in a tabled format.
Cloud services Account Owners can register and license new on-prem servers. You can also view a list of registered cloud, private cloud, and on-prem servers, with their server connectivity status, user and device licenses, instance usages, and the number of currently allocated IDs (for static servers), or the number of IDs used (for dynamic servers).
Below is a description of the connection status:
Online (green) – displays when a dynamic server is successfully checked-in during the scheduled sync, or when cloud-integration is enabled on a static server.
Offline (grey) – displays when a dynamic server fails to check-in after the 6 hour-scheduled sync, or when cloud-integration is disabled on a static server.
For each on-premises server that has been registered and licensed, clicking the ellipsis next to it provides you the following additional options:
Manage ID allocation
The server’s Device and Premium User IDs can be increased or decreased by updating the server license.
Enter pending receipt
This option becomes available if you had not completed the last step of your license activation. You will be able to continue with the activation.
The Support tab in the Appspace Account Management Portal, allows Cloud Services Account Owners to create and manage their own support tickets.
The Support page features 3 main components, which are:
Case History – View support ticket history. This page also has a button to create new support tickets, and a button to access the Appspace Knowledge Center.
You can view all the cases that you created via this portal or through the phone, including open and resolved tickets. Cases are automatically sorted by “last updated” first, and can be filtered by status.
Create Case – Create support tickets via a simple and easy form. You can include an attachment (all file types) per new ticket.
Case View – View case activity for each case.
- You can interact with the Appspace Support team by adding comments or uploading attachments. However, the comments cannot be edited, or deleted once you save it.
- Only the Appspace Support team may resolve or close a case.

- All file types are accepted for an attachment.
Live Chat is part of Support’s latest offering to paid subscription customers, that allow Cloud Services Account Owners and users with access to the Support page, to communicate directly with our support teams via the Account Management Portal.
- Live Chat can be accessed from the navigation bar, or invoked through a case thread when discussing the case specifically.
- Support personnel can create new cases based on a chat session, if the chat session isn’t related to an existing case.
The Settings tab allows Cloud Services Account Owners to configure various Appspace platform settings.
