Admin Portal allows you to set up, configure, and inspect your apps and features offered by PubNub using a graphical user interface.
Before you can log in, you need to create your PubNub account.
How to log in
PubNub offers these login options:
- Login & password provided during the account setup
- Google SSO
- Single Sign-On (SSO)
After logging in, you are presented with the Admin Portal homepage. It gives you an overview of your keysets, apps to which they're connected, and usage metrics for your apps from the last 24 hours. Make sure to check out the Resources section that provides you links to useful information like PubNub's documentation, support pages with best practices, or developer resources.
You can switch between different sections using the left-hand side navigation.
|Apps||Create new apps and view existing ones.|
|Keysets||The keysets section is split into two tabs. |
|Functions||Create new functions or manage the already existing ones.|
|Events & Actions||Create new or manage the existing Event Listeners and Actions.|
|Usage||View metrics for your account in a given time range.|
|Debug console||Debug your application with clients created directly in the browser.|
By clicking My Account, a sub-menu with different sections is displayed where you can view or change various settings related to your PubNub account.
|General||Shows general details regarding your account on PubNub's Admin Portal.|
|Account settings||Shows various account settings like the option to choose a region in which you want to store your data.|
|Single Sign-On||If your account doesn't have the Single Sign-On feature enabled, this menu item will direct you to a support request to enable it. Once configured, only the account admin is able to access the configuration section for security reasons.|
|Users||User management on your account where you can add new users, choose their roles, and invite them to use Admin Portal.|
|Plans and billing||Add payment information and check your current pricing and support plans. The Pricing plans tab allows you to change your current pricing plan and shows the differences between them.|
|Invoices & costs (Paid users only)||Displays previous invoices as well as current month's costs.|
|Support||Allows for accessing the support contact form.|
|Log out||Logs you out of Admin Portal.|
Invoices & costs
As mentioned previously, this tab, located inside the Plans and billing section, shows previous invoices as well as the current month's costs. This allows you, for example, to gauge whether the current month is similar to the previous cost-wise.
The section is split into the following views:
Current and past invoices
This section provides information on both previously paid and yet-to-be-paid invoices. If you paid only for a share of an invoice, this section also shows how much is left to pay.
This section displays different data based on the selected tab. It's split into two separate graphs. One graph shows your costs up to date either on a monthly or daily basis, while the other one shows your cost breakdown by PubNub features that you have enabled, for example, Function Execution.
These graphs allow you to see if the current month is getting close to how much you paid in previous months, it is below that cost, or maybe already over the average amount of your invoices.
