Familiarize yourself with entities of the Stigg platform
Represents an account of a Stigg customer.
Represents a Stigg customer environment that’s integrated with the Stigg platform. Stigg customers can integrate multiple environments belonging to the same account with the Stigg platform. An example use-case can be separate environments for development, test, staging and production.
Represents a user in the account that uses the Stigg platform, either via the Stigg Management Console. Example users can be: product managers, developers, customer success managers, etc. Currently all users have access to all environments.
Represents configurable functionality in the product that can be monetized. Features are environment-specific. Stigg supports 3 types of features:
- Boolean features - represent functionality that customers can either have access to or not.
- Configuration features - represent functionality that can be configured, for example: the number of days for data retention.
- Metered features - represent functionality with varying usage that needs to be be track, for example: number of seats, number of API calls made, etc.
Represents a feature that requires tracking of its usage. Stigg supports 2 types of meters:
- Fluctuating - a meter that's used to track the functionality of features with usage that can both increase and decrease over time. Examples include: number of seats, number of documents, number of images, etc.
- Incremental - a meter that's used to track the functionality of features with usage the continuously increases over time. Examples include: number of emails sent, number of API calls made, etc.
Represents a feature that can be defined with specific values, and doesn’t require tracking of its usage. Such features are helpful in defining boolean functionality (either users have access to or not), and features with a constant configuration (for example: 30 day log retention period).
In software, an entitlement refers to the right to use services, products, or in our case: application features. Entitlements can provide fine-grained controls over how an individual or organization can use software.
In Stigg, entitlements represent a combination of a feature and its configuration. The result is functionality that each customer is entitled to.
Stigg supports 2 types of entitlements: metered and unmetered entitlements.
Represents a configuration of a metered feature. When a limit is defined in a metered entitlement, access to product functionality is denied if usage exceeds the allowed limit.
Represents a configuration of an unmetered feature.
Represents a product or product-line that a Stigg customer offers to its customers.
Represents a billable functionality of a specific product. Each package has its own pricing. Stigg currently supports 2 types of packages: plans and add-ons.
Represents functionality of a product that customers are charged for during a pre-defined time period. The functionality that’s included in each plan is defined by entitlements that are associated with the specific plan. Plans can depend on one another, for example: when a customer purchases the “enterprise” plan, they also get the content of a “pro” plan and the “free” plan.
Represents separately billable functionality that extends the functionality of specific plans. Add-ons are dependent on the life-cycle of the plan that they extend; that is, when a subscription expires, customers also lose access to the plan’s add-ons. The functionality that’s included with each add-on is defined by entitlements.
Represents a customer of a Stigg customer. Access to products and their functionality is defined according to customers’ subscriptions.
Represents a combination of the functionality that a specific customer has access to and its limitations, the time period that customers have access to it, and how much they’re paying for it.
Subscriptions are composed of plans, add-ons.
The usage of the subscription’s metered entitlements is tracked using a measurement.
Represents usage of a metered feature by a customer as part of their subscription.
