Admin console

Starting in May 2022, ThoughtSpot rebranded pinboards as Liveboards. For backward compatibility, we currently support internal processes and external methods that use the older naming convention.

Learn how the Admin Console can help you manage users, groups, security, authentication, and much more.

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

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

You can complete the following tasks in the Admin Console:

Manage users and groups

Configure authentication

Manage settings: SSL, support, and application and menu customization

  • Configure SSL: Use SSL for authentication and data security when you send data to and from ThoughtSpot.

  • Configure a reverse SSH tunnel: Set up a reverse tunnel to allow ThoughtSpot Support to get access to your ThoughtSpot instance, to perform support-related activities.

  • Set the relay host for SMTP (email): Set up a relay host for SMTP traffic, to route the alert and notification emails coming from ThoughtSpot through an SMTP email server.

  • Customize ThoughtSpot help: Customize ThoughtSpot Help to be specific to your data, examples, and documentation.
