20150612: MyIT budget release

A MyIT release which permits adding budget information for group directories and default budgets for users and desktops is now available.

 

What and When:

As of this morning, MyIT includes new capabilities to set budget information along with some other updates. The changes include:

  • On the “IT Things I Own/Manage -> Nebula File Services” page, aka https://support.nebula.washington.edu/myIT/fileServices.aspx, there is now the ability to set budget on a per file directory basis.
  • On each individual department page accessible from the “IT Things I Own/Manage -> Nebula Departments” page, aka https://support.nebula.washington.edu/myIT/myNebulaDepartments.aspx, there is now the ability to set a default user budget and a default desktop budget. The default user budget applies to any user in your department who doesn’t otherwise have a budget assigned—this would apply to a user home directory. The default desktop budget applies to any desktop in your department that doesn’t otherwise have a budget assigned.
  • On the “IT Things I Own/Manage -> Nebula Users in My Department” page, aka https://support.nebula.washington.edu/myIT/myNebulaUsers.aspx, there is now a column indicating whether the user is a current faculty/staff.

 

What you need to do:

You can now review the budget information assigned to group directories, home directories, and desktops and adjust them as needed. For group directories and home directories, there is no existing budget so you will need to assign a budget to those items. Keep in mind that for home directories you can leverage the default user budget to assign a budget to all user home directories in your department.
