Cloud Analytics

New Features

  • Introducing new Cloud Analytics Role: You can now grant users access to only Cloud Analytics using the new ca_user role from Governance and Cloud Management Invite flow. The existing billing role has been removed and existing user privileges have been migrated, to this new role, so that no behavior is affected. The Billing Admin-only account setting, in Cloud Management, will no longer work and will be removed very soon.
