How to outsource your Dedibox

Reviewed on 24 July 2023Published on 12 March 2020

When you opt for outsourcing a Dedibox dedicated server, you entrust the technical management of your machines and services to another Scaleway Dedibox account while retaining control over your main account.

By outsourcing your servers, you grant permission to a third party to handle management on your behalf. This means the designated Dedibox account holder will have access to all the necessary technical details of your Dedibox. However, it is important to note that they will not be able to view your billing information or make any changes to the services within your primary account. This ensures that you maintain full control over your billing and service configurations while benefiting from external technical expertise.

  • You have an account and are logged into the Dedibox console
  • You have at least one Dedibox server

If you have several machines, you can outsource each of them individually to different users, if required.

  1. Click Server > Server list in the menu at the top of the web page to display the list of your servers.

  2. Select the server you want to outsource and click Manage to view its details.

  3. Click Outsourcing in the side menu of your server’s status page:

    The outsourcing form displays.

  4. Enter the identifier of the new technical contact for your server. The identifier is the login of the other user’s console account. Click Send request to validate the form.

    The holder of the other account receives a notification to accept the outsourcing of your dedicated server into their Scaleway Dedibox account.
