Introduction

Self-managed vs. Partner-managed customers

Customers who wish to manage Proactive Management on their own are referred to as “self-managed customers”. Customers who choose to outsource the management of Proactive Management to their preferred partners are referred to as “partner-managed customers. In Proactive Management, a customer access to all information pertaining to their customer account, while a partner has access to all information pertaining to all the customer accounts managed by the partner.

Note: HP recommends using HTTPS whenever possible and also to use absolute Redirect URLs (for example,. "https://example.com/auth/callback", and not "/auth/callback").
