What is NxCloud?
NxCloud is a multi-tenancy DNS filtering software for cloud based filtering business.


Multi-level admin
When you build your own cloud filtering service, you will want to be able to create accounts for your customers and let your customers set up their own policies for their users on their own GUI.

On NxCloud, there are 3 kinds of users.

Admin > Operator > User

'Admin' is the administrator of NxCloud or the account for yourself. It has almost the same GUI as NxFilter but being an administrator you can create operator accounts. These operator accounts are for your customers and they are something like sub-admin accounts on NxCloud. They can login to their own GUI and they can create and manage their own users and policies there.

For easier management of operators, you can access any operator account GUI with 'Magic Password'. At default, it is 'magic1023'.


Creating an operator
To create an operator you need to login to NxCloud GUI with admin permission. On 'Operator' menu you can create an operator. When you create an operator, NxCloud creates a default user and a default policy for the operator with the same name.

You can change the maximum number of users and policies an operator can create. This means you can have several levels of your service based on the permission of an operator.


Operator GUI
On NxCloud, each operator has his own GUI. If you login to NxCloud GUI with an operator account, you will be on the operator mode GUI. It is a bit more restrictive compared to the admin GUI as you only can change the operator specific options and policies.

Each operator has his own dashboard and report view.
