Managing the RCHPM - Cloud Hosting Provisioning Module

 

To manage the Module, navigate in WHMCS to » Addons » RCM Core Console v4 and access the R.C.H.Provisioning Module Dashboard from the left sidebar Addon Menu or from the Core Addon Home widget.

 

Getting started

 

First Time Setup

If this is the first time you install our Module to sell and manage Cloud Hosting plans, then start right away with the AutoSetup Guide. Once you have setup the Products you would like to sell, proceed with the AutoAddons Guide.


Currently using the v3 RCHPM - Cloud Hosting Provisioning Module

If you are using our v3 Module, then we suggest to start directly with the AutoMigrate Guide. Once you have migrated all your Products from the current v3 to the new v4 Module, proceed with the AutoAddons Guide.


Documentation Sections:

R.C.H.Provisioning Module

 

This is the Management Area with all details for your License, the Module Overview and the Module Settings at a glance:

Resellerclub Mods Console Module Dashboard

Edit Welcome Email

With the installation, the Module has created automatically a Standard Welcome Email Template which you can use for the Product Setup. Click the Button "Edit Welcome Email" and feel free to modify to your liking.


Selling Prices ManualSync

By default, Selling Prices for Products/Services and Configurable Options will not be updated automatically with the Selling Prices from your Reseller Account when the daily cron runs. You can activate this option in TAB "Settings" or you can use the Button "Selling Prices ManualSync" to update all your Product Selling Prices in WHMCS. Both Options, AutoSync as well as ManualSync will fetch your Selling Prices from your Reseller Account.


Recurring Prices ManualSync

By default, Recurring Prices for Products will not be updated automatically with the Selling Prices from your Reseller Account when the daily cron runs. You can activate this option in TAB "Settings" or you can use the Button "Recurring Prices ManualSync" to update all Active Customer Products. Prices for all Configurable Options (Product specific and custom configurable options if present) are included into the recurring price update. Products with a recurring price set to 0.00 are considered as FREE and therefore excluded from the recurring price update process.

Further details about Selling Prices and Recurring Prices AutoSync are available in TAB "Settings".

AutoMigrate

 

Resellerclub Mods Console AutoMigrate

Automated Migration

If you currently have Products configured with our v3 Module then they will appear in TAB "AutoMigrate". You can use the AutoMigrate Tool to migrate easily all your current products to the new module by clicking the Button "Migrate selected Products". If you want to migrate only some of the current Products then you can disable those Products with the enable/disable switch.


Manual Migratation

If you prefer to change each product manually to the new v4 module, then click the button "Product Management" and follow the small onscreen guide for manual migration.

 

AutoSetup

 

Resellerclub Mods Console AutoSetup

Automated Product Setup

Creating new Products in WHMCS is a time consuming manual task. With the new AutoSetup Tool you can setup new Products you would like to sell very fast. Everything is preselected and preconfigured by default and you can simply accept and create your Products immediately with a simple click! However, it is recommended to go through the Product Setup form and review all the available Settings:


Global Product Settings

Selling a hosting product requires always a domain name being associated. You can use the whmcs built-in "Require Domain" option to request the domain name or you can use a custom field for this purpose. Further details about the Global Settings are available onscreen.


Importing Selling Prices

Selling Prices are setup automatically and taken from your Reseller Account. It is highly recommended that you review first the Selling Prices in your Reseller Account! Managing Selling Prices in WHMCS is now an obsolete management task. Simply maintain your Selling Prices in your Reseller Account Up to Date and make use of the new AutoSync feature to update the Selling Prices in WHMCS automatically. Further details about Importing Selling Prices are available onscreen.


Products/Services

All Products available in your Reseller Account and not setup yet in WHMCS will be shown in the AutoSetup Form. All settings are preselected and prefilled. Feel free to modify everything to your liking. If you do not want to setup a specific Product, then simply disable it with the enable/disable switch to exclude the Product from the setup Process. Further details about Products/Services are available onscreen.


Once the AutoSetup process has been successfully executed you will be redirected to TAB Products which shows an Overview for all the Current and Active Products/Services as well as the Service Addons (Configurable Options) for each Product

 

AutoAddons

 

Resellerclub Mods Console AutoAddons

Product/Service Addons Setup

This tool will create the required Configurable Options to sell CPU Cores, RAM Gb and one additional IP for each Cloud Hosting Product. Not only that, the tool also will take in mind the migrated v3 products, creating the necessary new v4 Configurable Option for the migrated Product as well as update all Customer Services who still have the previously Addon from the v3 module associated!

Background history

Unlike the new v4 module, all Cloud Hosting Products across all Geolocations have shared the same Configurable Option using the old v3 module. The advantage of one unique Configurable Option was the pricing maintenance. However, the disadvandage with sharing the same Configurable Option is that not all Cloud Hosting Services do have the same cost price for Addons and you were forced to apply the highest selling price to avoid loss of benefit. The correct way to solve this problem is creating for each Product dedicated Configurable Options but which makes maintenance a real nightmare if you have dozens of products.

With the new v4 module everything is automated and the Core Addon will do everything for you automatically. A new Configurable Option will be created for each new Product. For migrated v3 Products, the Addon will create a new Configurable Option and if there are Customer Services present using a migrated Product, they will be updated automatically with the new Configurable Option and the recurring price will be re-calculated correctly. Furthermore, the AutoSync Recurring Price feature will update all your recurring prices periodically with your selling prices from your Reseller Account, if activated in TAB "Settings" » Recurring Price AutoSync.

Summarizing: Zero maintenance in WHMCS for Products and Configurable Options = Saving Money and valueable human working.

All you need to do is mainain all your selling prices in your Reseller account, indeed much more easier to update than in WHMCS, and activate the AutoSync Recurring Price option.


Import Selling Prices

It is recommended to leave the switch to enabled. Further details are available onscreen.


Configurable Options for Service Addons

The form is prefilled with the labels for Group Name, Group Description, Option Name and Options. Feel free to customize the labels. Some Configurable Option may require your attention! This applies only to migrated v3 Products currently not used by Customer Services as well as for Customer Services with the old v3 Configurable Option associated. In this case you need to select the current Configurable Option which is used for the Service Addons. Further details are available onscreen.


Once the AutoAddons process has been successfully executed you will be redirected to TAB Products which shows an Overview for all the Current and Active Products/Services as well as the Service Addons (Configurable Options) for each Product.

 

Products

 

Resellerclub Mods Console Product Overview

Overview

The Products TAB shows all Products and the corresponding Addon for each Product currently setup with the v4 Module at a glance.


Products and Addons

The Product Management Button allows you to access the Products Setup directly without the need to navigate in WHMCS to the Product for which you like to review the configuration or change the settings. The same for the Addon Management. However, the Addon Button may have several colors depending on the status for an Addon:


Orange Button

Resellerclub Mods Console Addon Pending

The Orange color Button indicates that the Addon is missing. Click the Button to access directly the AutoAddon TAB for automated setup. See Documentation Section AutoAddons in this Document.


Red Button

Resellerclub Mods Console Addon AutoFixup

The Red color Button indicates that the Addon is present but not associated to the corresponding Product. Click the Button to fix this issue immediately.


Blue Button

Resellerclub Mods Console Product & Addon

The Blue color Button indicates that the Addon is correctly configured. You can access the Configurable Option and adjust the labels for Group Name, Group Description, Option Name and Options as well as the Sort Order number.


All Configurable Options are prefixed with an unique identifier! Never change the identifier before the Tube sign "|". The Option type is mandatory and should not be changed! Everything else such as label text after the Tube sign "|" and sort order number can be adjusted to your needs.

AutoImport

 

Resellerclub Mods Console AutoImport Overview

Overview

This tool will help you to import into WHMCS all your current Active and Suspended Orders for each Product type. In addition to importing Orders, this tool also shows the Orders that already exist with their corresponding status as well as Orders which can be imported and those with issues who need to be fixed first before import.

Search Orders

Begin by selecting the Product type for which you would like to obtain details and click the Button Search Orders. The AutoImport Wizard will search all Orders you have in your Reseller account and generate a list of Orders based on their status. There are 4 possible Import status:

Service Domains found, ready for Import!
Shows you the service domains which are missing in your WHMCS. You can import those Orders which have a checkbox. You can select all or some of the Orders you would like to import. Orders with an exclamation sign instead of a checkbox cannot be imported because the required Product is missing and you need to setup the same before you can Import services.

Service Domains fully In Sync
Shows you the service domains which are fully in sync between WHMCS and your Reseller Account. You can access a Service directly with the Service ID Link.

Service Domains out of Sync!
Shows you those services which are present in your WHMCS but considered out of sync due to customer email mismatch between WHMCS and your Reseller account. The customer email address must be the same in both systems. You should fix this asap. Click the Service ID link to access the service to obtain more details about the out of sync status.

Service Domains found but missing WHMCS Customer!
Shows you the services which cannot be imported until you have added the missing Customer in WHMCS. Use our FREE Tools Addon to easly import all your customers from your Reseller account into WHMCS.
