The most important characteristic of a ‘user’ in Jet is that a user is a single billable entity. A user may be a private individual, a company or any similar entity. The way in which a user is billed is ultimately determined by the plans which that user is subscribed to. Users can be arranged into a hierarchy of ‘parents’ and ‘children’ to enable a cascading allocation of charges to different cost-centres.
In addition to a set of one or more plans to which they are subscribed, a user will generally have the following kinds of information attached to them – address information, contact information, and username/password data. This information is generally referred to as ‘User Data’. The exact set of information which you wish to record about your users can be edited using the Jet ‘Profile Management’ tool.
