Posted: 02.12.2021 10:34
To see sensor data from Aranet PRO base stations and use other Aranet Cloud services a registered user must be affiliated with an Aranet Cloud organization. After the initial log in the user is prompted to create a new organization.
This process is divided into 3 steps where the user needs to:
- select License type that will be used for the new organization;
- in Organization type select what kind of legal entity will be responsible for payment of invoices for purchased operational licenses of the new organization;
- enter Organization contacts/payer/billing data.
As Aranet Cloud services can be accessed only with time-limited licenses, the user first has to select the type of license that will be used for the new organization:
FREE TRIAL – the trial license will be applied to the new organization which will allow using it with full Aranet Cloud functionality free of charge for 30 days. Note that if an Aranet PRO base station had been previously registered to an organization with a free trial license, then it will not be possible to register it again to a second organization with a free trial license.
- BUY LICENSE – should be selected when the user wants to buy an Aranet Cloud license immediately. At this step, just the type of the license is selected, but the actual purchase order for the license will be created later in the process.
At the next step the user needs to select the type of legal entity that will represent the new organization and in case of license purchase, will pay the issued invoices.
There are 2 options:
- PRIVATE USE – when a private (natural/physical) person will represent the new organization and pay its’ invoices;
- COMPANY USE – when a company will represent the new organization and pay its’ invoices.
Continue with entering contact details for the legal entity which will represent the new organization. In case the Aranet Cloud license is purchased, then this data will be used to autofill billing address details in the order invoice. The appearance of Organization data page will slightly differ depending on the organization type selected previously. If PRIVATE USE was selected in the previous step, then First name and Last name fields will be shown and must be filled. If COMPANY USE was selected in the previous step, then Company name and optionally VAT number (if the company has it) fields will be shown and should be filled:
When all Organization data page mandatory fields are filled, then CREATE ORGANIZATION button can be pressed. Such an operation will create a new Cloud organization with the Name which was entered in Company Name or First name field. The user who created the new organization will have the Owner role with unlimited permission level (viewing and editing rights) in the organization.
If user selected BUY LICENCE at the first step of Organization creation process, then page directing to SHOP will open:
Note that during the new organization creation process user can go back to the previous steps by clicking on digit icon of the required step, f.e. and change his selection in these steps. If the organization has been already created by pressing the CREATE ORGANIZATION button, then it will not be possible to make changes to License type and Organization type. Still, it will be possible to change the Organization contacts/billing data by going to the section ORGANIZATION tab CONFIG and clicking on the Edit icon or EDIT ORGANIZATION button in the Payer data subsection:
If the user has selected the FREE TRIAL license type during the new organization creation process, the license purchase step is skipped, and the user can proceed with the Aranet PRO base station registration by clicking the REGISTER button:

Note , if an Aranet PRO base station had been previously registered to an organization with a free trial license, then it will not be possible to register it again to a second organization with a free trial license.
If the user has selected a FREE TRIAL license, it is possible at any time to update the organization license by purchasing a time-based operational license.
