Each Logz.io plan starts off with a main account. If you’re on a Pro or Enterprise plan, you can create sub accounts to help manage user access to your data.
The main account
Users in your main account have access to your data in sub accounts and timeless accounts. Admin users of the main account also have these permissions:
- Create, view, update, and delete users in the main account and sub accounts, including other admin users
- Create, view, update, and delete sub accounts
- Create, view, update, and delete timeless accounts
- Create and delete shared tokens and API tokens
Because of the high level of permissions, we recommend limiting the number of admin users in the main account.
Sub accounts help you control data usage and manage user access to your logs. By shipping different logs to different sub accounts, you can define data volumes and retention periods for different environments.
Managing your accounts
If you’re an admin for the main account, you can manage the main account and sub accounts from the Manage Accounts page ( > Settings > Manage accounts in the top menu).
Click an account in the Time based retention plan panel to see its settings.
