Account manager is an account node type that provides a single point for account management actions.The account manager screeen is in two parts.
- The top part shows account information, such as the account reference, and links to built-in admin functions which are also available from the settings page. It also provides some non built-in functions: set account home node, and delete account.
- The lower part of the screen shows all the subscriptions for the account, and all the instances created using those subscriptions. It provides full life-cycle support, to install, update and delete subscriptions and instances.
The account manager provides a process to support the subscription life cycle, product actions, and the additional utility functions such as delete account. The processes invoke account services to perform the actions.
The subscription life cycle process is complicated, and is explained in the next seciton.
