# Plan details
To change a customer account's plan or trial status, use the Subscription option in the Customer > Settings tab. You can change plans to an existing custom plan.
To add or remove plans, contact your customer success manager.
The Trial option lets you put the customer's account in a trial status, enabling the customer to try the Workato platform for 30 days. Accounts in a trial status have a limit of 100 tasks per month.
After the 30-day trial period ends, Workato automatically downgrades the plan to the Free plan. As a Workato Embedded partner, you can extend the trial by re-enabling it and changing the customer's plan.
After the customer subscribes, disable the Trial option. This places the customer in an active subscription.
# App access
When you create a customer account, the account can access all available apps by default. You can select the apps a customer account can access in the App access tab. you can select the apps a customer account can access.
When apps are selected, the customer account can only discover and connect to the selected apps. This also applies to apps in the Community Library.
Follow these steps to modify the list of available apps for a customer:
Open the customer's Settings > App access tab in your partner account.
Click the Edit button in the App access tab.
In the window that displays, select the app(s) you want the customer to access. To remove access to an app, de-select it.
When finished, click Apply changes.
After selecting apps, you must manually add new apps to the accessible apps list to grant the customer access..
# External ID
The external ID is a customer ID assigned to the customer by the Workato Embedded partner. This ID usually corresponds to a customer ID within your CRM. You can change the value anytime, but doing so affects any APIs using the external ID as an input.
Additionally, Workato assigns each customer a unique User ID. This ID appears in the URL of the Customer Information page:
In this example, the User ID is
iframe origin URL
The iframe origin URL setting is available only for customers using Workato embedded.
Entering a URL into the
iframe origin URL field overrides the value set in the Partner admin account.
Suppose a partner account has an origin URL of
https://company.com. If you don't set an origin URL in the customer account, the customer account inherits the origin from the partner account.
If the customer has a unique domain they log in with, for example,
https://customer.company.com, you can use the iframe origin URL setting to define and apply this only to that specific customer.
If your application supports multiple custom domains or workspaces, this setting enables those features.
# Multiple origins per customer
In addition to setting customer-specific origin URLs, you can define multiple origins per customer.
In the iframe origin URL field, enter a list of URLs separated by commas. For example:
When defined, the origins should be provided as
origin after generating the JWT. After the user signs in using the JWT, the provided origin is saved into the session object and used for the session's lifetime until the user signs out. For more info about JWT direct linking, refer to this guide.
# Delete account
The Workato Embedded partner may delete a customer account at any time. Deleting a customer account is permanent and removes all data and recipes associated with the account. You cannot recover deleted accounts.
# Update customer name
To update a customer name, you must first switch to the customer account.
Only customer managers with Collaborator privileges are allowed to update the customer name.
Select the customer account to update from the Customer table > Click on Switch to this account located on the top right.
