Managing users

This article contains instructions for managing users in a single tenant environment. If you do not have an Org switcher between the help icon and the Search answers and Liveboards search box, your company is in a single tenant environment.

If your company uses the Orgs feature for multi-tenancy in ThoughtSpot, you can see an Org switcher to the left of the help icon in the top navigation bar. Refer to Managing users in a multi-tenant environment.

Before people can log in and use ThoughtSpot, you need to create a username, a password, and a membership in one or more groups for them. Use the Admin Console to easily create and manage your users.

Refer to Understand groups and privileges to learn about the privileges you can assign to a user.

To manage users, navigate to the Admin Console by selecting the Admin tab from the top navigation bar. Select Users from the side navigation bar that appears.

Admin Console - Users

Use the Admin Console to accomplish the following tasks:

  • Create a user by selecting the + add user button

  • Manage an existing user by selecting the user you would like to edit: change the username, display name, sharing visibility, password, or email, or resend or test the welcome email

  • Delete a user by hovering over a username, clicking the checkbox that appears, and selecting the Delete button

  • Add a user or users to groups by hovering over a username, clicking the checkbox that appears, and selecting the Add users to groups button

Refer to Create, edit, or delete a user for more detail on how to create and manage users.
