Audience

This guide is for administrators who are responsible for setting up, maintaining, and configuring Cisco Intelligent Automation for Cloud 4.0.

Introduction

Cisco Intelligent Automation for Cloud 4.0 provides the financial management functionality falling into the following tools:

  1. Pricing - A method to set pricing on common objects.
  2. Showback - A mechanism to allow users to see the calculated cost of their potential orders during the ordering process.
  3. Run Rates - Both a mechanism for users to see the recurring cost of the items that they own, as well as a mechanism for administrators to see the recurring cost of the items that their tenants own.
  4. Billing Integration - Real-time billing events that can be consumed by a billing system within an extension point..

Especially for Showback and Run Rates categories, when currency figures are displayed in the user interface, a currency symbol is displayed (e.g. $300.00). The default global currency symbol is provided as "Dollar" to facilitate initial product deployment. This currency symbol may be customized to reflect the currency used within a given Cisco IAC deployment. This global currency symbol setting may be configured following the instructions below.

    4. decimal: ‘0’ - where to put decimal point, from right. 0 means no decimal point -> all numbers will be rounded.
