Admin Console for Orgs

The Admin Console provides you with an intuitive, user-friendly interface to accomplish most of the necessary tasks for administering ThoughtSpot in a multi-tenant environment.

Navigate to the Admin Console by selecting Admin from the top navigation bar.

This article is an overview for the Admin Console if your company uses the Orgs feature for multi-tenancy in ThoughtSpot. This feature allows a ThoughtSpot cloud instance to be logically partitioned into multiple tenant-specific environments called Orgs. With Orgs, each tenant’s data is isolated and protected with access control, and is invisible to the other tenants that share the same ThoughtSpot application instance. If you have an Org switcher to the left of the help icon in the top navigation bar, your company is using Orgs.

If you do not have an Org switcher between the help icon and the Search answers and Liveboards search box, your company is not using Orgs. Refer to For IT and Ops.

Cluster administrators and Org administrators

Cluster administrators and Org administrators have some of the same privileges and responsibilities. While these roles overlap, they are not the same.

Cluster administrators can do the following tasks:

  • Org management: creating, editing, and deleting Orgs

  • User management for any user in any Org

  • Group management for any group in any Org

  • Connection management: creating, editing, and deleting any connection in any Org

For a cluster administrator, the Admin Console in the Primary Org has an All orgs section, to manage cross-Org configuration, and a Primary org section, to manage configuration for the Primary Org.

Org admin console for the cluster administrator

Org administrators can do the following tasks:

  • User management for any user in the Org(s) in which the Org administrator has admin privileges

  • Group management for any group in the Org(s) in which the Org administrator has admin privileges

  • Connection management: creating, editing, and deleting any connection in the Org(s) in which the Org administrator has admin privileges

For an Org administrator, the Admin Console does not have an All orgs section. The Org administrator can only manage configuration for their specific Org.

Org admin console for the Org administrator

The Admin Console looks different, depending on whether you are a cluster administrator or an Org administrator.

When a cluster administrator is in the Primary Org, they can see two columns in the side navigation bar of the Admin Console: All orgs and Primary org.

The Org administrator can only see one column in the side navigation bar.

Admin Console for cluster administrators

Cluster administrators can complete the following tasks in the Primary Org’s Admin Console, under All orgs. Users can only manage these settings at a cluster level. These settings cannot be managed separately for each Org.

Manage users
