Managing local authentication

If your organization uses Multi-tenancy with Orgs, you must be a cluster administrator to manage local authentication, not an Org administrator. You manage local authentication for the whole cluster. You cannot set it separately for each Org.

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 sign in to ThoughtSpot.

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

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

If your organization uses Multi-tenancy with Orgs, ensure that you are in the Primary Org, in the All orgs section of the Admin Console. You manage local authentication for the whole cluster. You cannot set it separately for each Org.

Admin Console - Local

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