Managing local authentication

ThoughtSpot has robust local authentication, and integrates with SAML.

Local authentication is enabled by default in your ThoughtSpot Cloud environment. This means that any local user you create can sign in to ThoughtSpot with the specific ThoughtSpot credentials you set up for them when creating the user.

If you disable local authentication, no local user can log into ThoughtSpot.

You can enable or disable local authentication from the Admin Console.

Navigate to the Admin Console by clicking on the Admin tab from the top navigation bar. Select Local from the side navigation bar that appears.

Admin Console - Local

Click the Edit button in the top middle of the screen.

Edit local authentication

Select Enable or Disable, and click OK.

Select enable or disable

Note that you cannot disable local authentication until you configure SAML authentication.
