There are two types of dashboards in Monaca:
Developer Dashboard: is used by Developer accounts to develop and manage projects.
Team Dashboard: is used by Administrator accounts to manage developer team and various licenses as well as tickets in a company.
There are two types of Enterprise or Business accounts:
This is an account for managing developer accounts and licenses, plugin licenses, support & CI tickets and contract information.
It is used for management only, independent of the general Monaca developer accounts. In other words, it can only be used to log into Team Dashboard.
If your account is both Developer and Administrator account, you can access Team Dashboard directly from Developer Dashboard and vice versa.
This is an account for logging into Developer Dashboard and developing Monaca projects.
In the dashboard, the plan name is displayed as
Enterprise (company name) or
Business (company name).
Enterprise users can use any Power plugins for FREE while Business users need to pay for each Power plugin. The plugins can be acquired through Team Dashboard (please refer to Purchasing Plugin Licenses).
In a company, administrators can log into the Team Dashboard to perform various tasks such as managing a developer team, purchasing and assigning developer licenses, purchasing and using support tickets, changing contract type and so on.
In the Team Dashboard, administrators are mainly doing the following tasks:
Developer management: invite/remove developers to/from the team.
Licenses management: purchase and manage developer and Power plugin licenses.
Ticket management: purchase and manage support and CI (Continuous Integration) tickets, view ticket usage history and check the remaining number of tickets.
Access restriction management: limit the access to Team and Developer Dashboard by using IP address restriction.
Contract management: view/update contract information, change contract type and delete the team.
Support request: contact Monaca support team for various assistances.
Once you have successfully registered and logged in as an Administrator in the Team Dashboard, you should complete the following tasks first before you can start using the Team Dashboard properly:
In this page, you will be able to see the summary of the whole administration tasks such as current contract type, number of licenses and tickets, orders in progress and so on.
There are 5 main parts of this top page:
showing contract type of the administrator
displaying information about numbers of developer licenses, Power plugin licenses, support & CI tickets and other usages
displaying information about various orders in progress. This is available when orders are made using billing method. In other words, it shows how many orders are still waiting for the payment to be settled/completed.
In this page, you can manage developers and administrators in your team.
In order to add a developer into your team, click on Invite a developer button. Then, you will be asked to input the email of new member.
The new member could be one of the following types of users:
the member is a Free Monaca user: this member can be added to the team right away.
the member is a paid Monaca user: this member will need to cancel his currently contracted plan first before adding to the team.
the member is not a Monaca user: an email will be sent to the member to register with Monaca first and then being added to the team.
After adding a developer to the team, the added developer will be automatically in a trial state of the same plan as the administrator. For example, if the administrator is under a Business plan, the added developer will be in a trial state of the Business plan.
In order to add an admin into your team, click on Add an administrator button. Then, you will be asked to input the following information about the new admin.
In this page, you can manage developer license for your team. There are 3 types of Developer licenses:
Bundled licenses: full licenses coming with your contract
Trial licenses: trial licenses for evaluation purposes
Purchased licenses: additional licenses that you purchase
In this page, you can modify the usage of each license key:
You can purchase additional developer licenses separately. Each license period is handled separately from the contract term. The usage period is counted after the purchasing is completed.
In order to purchase additional licenses, click on Purchase developer license button. Then, you will be asked to input the following information. After that, follow the purchasing wizard to complete the process.
For Business plan users, you can use Power plugins by purchasing the plugin license. However, Enterprise users can use Power plugins for free.
If there are valid Power plugin licenses, all developers within the team can use the plugins (for a trial period). However, only the developer who actually has been assigned the plugin license to can build a release build.
In order to assign the plugin license to a developer, please do as follows:
Click on Configure button of the plugin you want to assign to open the Plugin Settings page.
Then, you will be able to select a developer from the Developer list.
After that, select the project which you want to assign the plugin license to.
Click Register button to complete this assigning process.
If you are on trial, you cannot buy plugin license. Please register a full contract first. Moreover, each plugin license is valid for one year after a complete purchasing.
In this page, you will be able to see various information related to support and CI tickets such as number of available tickets, expiration date of the tickets and usage history of each ticket.
After a valid contract registration, a certain numbers of support and CI tickets are awarded monthly. However, you can purchase additional tickets and use them separately.

You can change the access restriction to each dashboard as follows:
Click on Change button.
