(howto) Add users to a FireCloud Billing Project

When you create a new FireCloud Billing Project, you are automatically designated as the Owner. If lab or team members want to create or clone new workspaces, you can grant them access to any FireCloud Billing Project of which you are the Owner. Note that your team members must independently register as FireCloud users before you can give them access.

The procedure is fairly straightforward:

  1. Go to the FireCloud Billing management page. If you lose this link, you can always access it from the FireCloud portal by clicking on the User Profile drop-down menu (which looks like a grey box with your email address in it, located in the top right corner of the window) and selecting Billing.

  2. Select the FireCloud Billing Project to which you want to add users. You must be an Owner of that Billing Project to add users.

  3. Click on Add User… This will open a pop-up window.

  4. In the pop-up window, enter the user’s FireCloud email address and select a role: User or Owner. Then click OK.

    A little Tip : if you are a member of a Billing Project and want to find out who is the owner of this Billing Project so you can ask them to add new team members to the project - the name of the owner is stated on the summary tab of the Workspaces linked to this billing project . Cheers.

    follow-up on this : in a workspace you own, you'll need to click on Share (left hand menu) which will bring up a pop-up screen that will specify the billing project owner. We are working on improvements such this information will be available in other places in the application.
