iWorkflow terminology

Before you manage cloud resources, it is important that you understand some common terms as they are defined within the context of the iWorkflow™ system.

Term Definition
service templates An application template is a collection of parameters (in the form of F5 iApps® templates) that a cloud administrator defines to create a customized configuration for tenants. Cloud administrators add the configured application to a catalog from which a tenant can self-deploy it.
iWorkflow The iWorkflow™ system streamlines management and access for tenants to services and applications hosted by local and/or cloud-based servers.
cloud administrator Cloud administrators are iWorkflow users who create application templates for tenants to centrally manage access to specific web-based applications and resources. Cloud administrators might also be referred to as cloud providers.
cloud connector A cloud connector is a resource that identifies the local or virtual environment in which a tenant deploys applications and, when necessary, adds parameters required by third-party cloud providers.
resources A resource is any managed object, including devices, web applications, virtual servers, servers, cloud connectors, and so forth.
roles A role defines specific privileges to which you can associate one or more users. There are two default roles for iWorkflow: cloud administrator and cloud tenant.
tenant A tenant is an entity that can consist of one or more users accessing resources provided by a cloud administrator.
user A user is an individual who has been granted access to specific tenant resources.
